The most important thing to decide is when you’ll be traveling. If you are looking for a relaxing summer stay or a snowy winter getaway, it’s best to first decide which type of vacation you want. During this time, begin setting a budget for your trip. When you have a budget that you can stick to, you won’t have to worry about straying from the specified amount. When you plan ahead, you have more time to find great deals and take advantage of special offers. The Smoky Mountains are a great vacation destination during all times of year, so it’s completely up to you when you want to visit.
