Reasons to love coming to the
Smokies in February
We could not be more thankful to be located next door to the most popular national park in the country, The Great Smoky Mountains National Park. However, with the popularity, this also means that visitors here are also accustomed to the high amount of traffic that is associated with it.
Come to the Smokies this winter. Not only are there fewer crowds on the streets, but there is also not as many guests waiting in line at the many popular attractions, shops and shows in the area.
Believe it or not, winter in the Smoky Mountains does not always mean that guests will experience uncomfortable freezing temperatures. Yes, the weather is a lot chillier than what you would find in the summer and spring, but it is not so cold that you won’t be able to go out and enjoy anything while you are here.
In fact, the average highs for the months of December, January and February are normally around the mid to low-50’s. That being said, it is not uncommon for us to see a day where the temperatures rise to the mid to upper 60’s.
If you love the cold, all hope is not lost. The average lows for these months are known to dip below freezing for a couple of days.
When you think about winter in the Smoky Mountains, it is easy to imagine a rather dreary scene. The leaves have mostly all fallen from the trees and there isn’t much lush foliage. However, what you may not realize is that this is actually the best time to see the Smoky Mountains.
Because there is not as many leaves and trees to obstruct your view, you and your family are more likely to get a full panoramic view of the scenic mountains from wherever you are in the area.
Cheap Smoky Mountain Cabin Rentals
Last, but not least, one of the biggest perks for families and guests traveling to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in the off-season is the abundance of cheap Smoky Mountain cabin rentals. Because the demand for these rentals isn’t as high in January and February, the price per night stay is significantly lower than say around the holidays or in the middle of the summer.
