Despite the economic downturn, more people are saving up their hard-earned money to plan a fantastic summer getaway with family or friends in a Gatlinburg cabin. They decide months in advance to visit Gatlinburg, TN then spend their coffee breaks daydreaming about the whitewater rafting in the cool waters of the Pigeon River, shopping along the main strip, and enjoying everything that their luxury cabin will offer them upon arrival. Yet why spend more than you need to when many local attractions offer coupons and discounts?
One of the more popular attractions in Gatlinburg, the Ripley’s Believe It or Not enterprise has a coupon for each of its attractions: $1.00 off the main museum, Moving Theater, Guinness World Records museum, Mirror Maze, and the Haunted Mansion; a free shark tooth necklace from the Aquarium of the Smokies; and a free souvenir golf ball from Davy Crockett Mini-Golf. This really adds up when you have mom, dad, and all of the little ones running around! Take a look below to see where else you can rack up the savings:
** Hoot N’ Holler: $5.00 off of the combo package
