While the weather on most summer days in the Great Smoky Mountains is moderate and comfortable, it is not uncommon to experience a heat wave or two! If you want to beat the heat this summer, there are plenty of fun ways to cool off while staying at Summit Manor! Here are the top 4 ways to cool off this summer while staying at our condos in Gatlinburg TN:
1. Ride the Blue Cyclone Rapids at Ober Gatlinburg
One of the best ways to beat the heat this summer is by riding the Aerial Tramway to Ober Gatlinburg! While at the top of the mountain, you will not only experience cooler temperatures but have the opportunity to enjoy the Blue Cyclone Rapids waterslide! The rafts on this exciting enclosed water ride twist and turn their way down until they reach the splash finale at the bottom! Although swimsuits are not required for this attraction, you should still plan to get wet! While at Ober Gatlinburg, you can also experience the Shoot-The-Chute and Lightnin’ waterslides as well as a mountain coaster and other dry attractions.
2. Visit Dollywood’s Splash Country
Another way to stay cool while staying at our condos in Gatlinburg TN is by heading up the Parkway to Dollywood’s Splash Country in Pigeon Forge! This massive water park includes attractions for guests of all ages, including thrilling slides for teens and water play areas for younger children. Some of the wildest rides in the park that are guaranteed to get you soaked include the Big Bear Plunge, Fire Tower Falls, Mountain Twist and Raging River Rapids! If you prefer a more mild way to cool off, kick back among the beauty of the Smoky Mountains on the Downbound Float Trip or splash around in the Mountain Waves wave pool.
3. Swim in Our Refreshing Pool
The most convenient way to cool off during the summer months is by taking a dip in the refreshing swimming pool at Summit Manor! Our pool area is a fantastic place to take a break on a warm summer afternoon after taking a morning hike at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park! The best part is that there is no need to fuss about changing into your bathing suit and applying sunscreen with your condo unit just steps away from the pool! Once you are done swimming a few laps or splashing around with the kids, simply head back to your condo for a hot shower and fresh change of clothes!
4. Relax in Your Air-Conditioned Condo
If you prefer to cool off without changing into your bathing suit and getting wet, kick back for a lazy afternoon in your air-conditioned condo at Summit Manor! Our comfortable condos feature a fully equipped kitchen where you can keep your favorite beverages cold or store ice cream in the freezer. Take this time to relax in front of the television to watch your home sports team in action or take a nap as you rest up for a fun evening in Gatlinburg.
