Surprise Mom This Motherís Day with A Gatlinburg Adventure

Smoky Mountain lodgesMother's Day just comes one every year; the opportunity to show your mom just how much you appreciate all she does. Yet, for most of us, we do the same thing for our moms every year. Maybe it's a card or a breakfast. Whatever it is, break the mold this year with an adventure to Gatlinburg that your mom will never forget. With so much to do in Gatlinburg, here are a few ideas to get you started.

Baskins Creek Falls Hike
Thought of by some as the most underrated waterfall in the Smoky Mountains, Baskins Creek Falls is a two-tiered 40-foot waterfall that is the perfect spot for a picnic lunch. At exactly three miles, this round-trip hike is rated as a fairly easy hike, and the breathtaking views of the waterfall make it the perfect adventure for your mom this Mother's Day.

Ziplining
Nothing quite says adventure like soaring through the tree tops of the Smoky Mountains. With multiple zip line opportunities available, you will have your choice of exactly what adventure you want. Whether it is expansive views or a more rigorous, rugged adventure you are looking for, Gatlinburg has you covered. It will certainly be a time Mom will never forget.

Horseback Riding
It is difficult to make the Smoky Mountains any more majestic, but the landscape is even more beautiful on horseback in Cades Cove. With guided tours that will take you through the mountains, valleys or streams, you will have the chance to see the beautiful Gatlinburg landscape like never before.

Mountain Biking
This is probably more suited for the more outgoing moms, but mountain biking can be a fun and exhilarating way to enjoy Mother's Day. There are plenty of biking trails around Gatlinburg and plenty of shops that will rent you all of the equipment and safety gear you need to hit the ground running.

Getting outside can be a great way to enjoy this Mother's Day and a great way to start a new tradition for you and your mom. Before you plan your Gatlinburg adventure, be sure to check out Greystone Lodge on the River, one of Gatlinburg's best downtown hotels. With easy access to all of the adventures Gatlinburg has to offer and all of the excitement of the city, it is definitely one of the downtown Gatlinburg hotels you should consider for your trip.
