What Is So Special About Taking a Gatlinburg Vacation in March?

Are you restlessly counting down the days until spring break gets here, or at least trying to patiently wait until the warmer weather is here to stay? At Visit My Smokies, we could not agree more!

Warmer Weather

Although waking up and seeing the snow in the Smoky Mountains is a beautiful sight, we cannot say that we are sad to see it go in exchange for the warmer weather of spring. After several cold months, we are excited to trade in our heavy overcoats and down vests for sandals and sunglasses.

Not to mention, warmer weather also means that you and your family will not have to pack as many layers in your suitcase when you prepare for your trip, meaning less hassle both during your pre-planning and when you return home. Besides, with less layers to worry about, you will have more room in your bag to fit in a few extra souvenirs to bring back home with you that you and your family picked up from one of the many quaint shops in Gatlinburg and the surrounding areas.

To learn what the weather will be like during your spring vacation to Gatlinburg, be sure to check out our latest weather report from Smoky Mountain Weatherman, Paul Poteet. You can see his Smoky Mountain weather report under the Area Information tab on our website.
