No matter where you are, being with family for Easter is the most important part of the holiday.
However, when you can spend the holiday in the natural splendor of Gatlinburg in the Great Smoky Mountains, surrounded by the people you love, why not plan a trip? This year maybe consider┬áa cabin at the Elk Springs Resort to not only celebrate Easter in a new, beautiful locale but to use this time to relax and bond with your family. Located just minutes from downtown Gatlinburg, your luxury Gatlinburg┬ácabin rental is the perfect place to spend Easter Sunday.
While you could easily spend the entire weekend snuggled inside your cabin, there is so much to see and do in Gatlinburg that you will not be forced to. Below is just a few events planned for Easter weekend that are sure to entertain everyone in your family:
Great Smoky Easter Arts & Crafts Show: Held from April 20 to 23 at the Convention Center, you can browse through hundreds of unique handmade items. Artisans from in and around the Great Smoky Mountains display their wares each year at this festive event, making it a must-attend for anyone who loves art or just loves shopping!
Easter Sunrise at Ober Gatlinburg: For a truly memorable experience, attend the sunrise Easter service held at Ober Gatlinburg, the best vantage point of the city. You can take the lift on up to the top of Mt. Harrison for this annual service that is attended by both locals and visitors just like you. The complimentary tram service starts carrying people to the top at 5:15 a.m.; the service begins at 6 a.m. sharp.
Ripley’s Easter Egg Hunt: Sponsored by Ripley’s and Old MacDonald’s Farm Mini-Golf, your children can search for Easter eggs and more at this fun event. Bring along a canned food item to donate to Sevier County Food Ministries and watch your kids scramble around for the biggest and best eggs. This event will be held on April 22 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Tanger Outlet on the Parkway.
