Whether you are a die-hard Tennessee fan or you are coming here to watch your team take on the Vols, why not stay in the Smokies while you’re here! Knoxville hotels get booked up pretty quick for game weekend, and it would be so much more pleasant to stay in a cabin for the weekend, with everything the Smokies has to offer sitting right outside your front door! Besides going to the game, you could also go for a hike, visit Dollywood or the Ripley’s Aquarium, or go shopping and enjoy our unique array of restaurants!

Shades of the PastRod Runs
If you like cars, especially if you are obsessed with cars, you MUST come to these rod runs! If you favor the old cars and don’t care a whit for newer ones, you will enjoy the Shades of the Past Rod Run, being held September 7 – 8, 2012 in Pigeon Forge, TN .If you love a variety of cars, don’t miss the Fall Grand Rod Run the next weekend, September 13 – 16, 2012! Literally THOUSANDS of cars, new and old, shiny and well worn, of every shape and size, make and model will line the streets of Pigeon Forge for miles. Thousands of people will walk up and down the strip in Pigeon Forge looking at all the cars, and for those trying to drive through town, it will take an hour to move a hundred feet because even everyone on the street just wants to look at the cars!! My husband purposely went through Pigeon Forge at least 3 different times the last weekend it was held, even with all the traffic, because he wanted to look at the cars! Don’t miss it! For a small sampling of past years, why not view some You Tube videos!

Spend the night at Golf Vista!While you’re here for the football and the rod run, why not stay in a cabin, chalet, or condo? ERA in the Smokies has beautiful luxury cabins and chalets in Gatlinburg with everything from mountain views, to creekside, hot tubs, whirpools, and game rooms! Or for the rod run, stay in our luxury condo, Golf Vista #131, in Pigeon Forge! It’s just about 3 or 4 blocks from the main Parkway, close enough for you to walk from your condo to where all those beautiful cars will be lined up!
