Just because you are on vacation doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate your favorite spooky holiday. Read through our tips below to discover all our favorite ways to celebrate Halloween in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge.

1. Watch Scary Movies in Your Cabin Rental

What would Halloween be without a fun and festive scary movie marathon, especially one inside one of our Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg cabins with a movie theater? That is why one of our favorite ways to celebrate Halloween in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge is to host your own family movie night. Not only does this allow you to share your favorite spooky tales with your family and friends, it also allows you to enjoy the holiday in your favorite travel destination.

Not to mention, choosing to watch your favorite scary movies in your cabin’s home theater room means you don’t have to worry about dealing with all the unnecessary distractions you usually find at a public movie theater, including noisy people, cell phones ringing, and long concession stand lines.

Even better, you don’t have to adjust your schedule to meet the movie’s start time. Instead, you can control when the movie starts, stops, and pauses to fit your needs.

2. Cook Something Special

This can be as simple as a baked good  or dessert or as complex as a full ghostly meal.

It doesn’t matter how much food you make. All that matters is you  know your family or group are sure to be in a festive spirit once they see what you have created. Plus, you will appreciate having the ability to do so thanks to the fact all our cabin rentals come with their own fully-equipped kitchen.
