How To Plan The Perfect Sunday Funday
For too long, Sunday has been associated with the end of an exciting weekend and the start of another dreaded work week. Instead of letting the Sunday blues get you down, turn the end of your weekend into a day filled with good food, good friends, and good drinks! One of the best ways to turn a regular day into an adventure is to mosey on up to the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area to make some memories. Check out our three suggestions on how to plan the perfect day trip and make the most of your Sunday Funday.
Brunch It Up
Start your day the right way – with a visit to the famous Pancake Pantry located in the heart of downtown Gatlinburg. This picturesque restaurant was built in 1960 and has become a Gatlinburg tradition for every hungry traveler. The unique building is located right next to The Village, a collection of 27 charming boutiques situated in a stone covered oasis. The signature slated roof and wide-open windows of the Pancake Pantry make dining here a real treat before the food even arrives. With 24 different varieties of pancakes and crepes to choose from, every member of your Sunday Funday squad is guaranteed to leave feeling full and happy.
Do The Loop
No, we’re not talking about some new dance craze. To frequent visitors or natives to Gatlinburg, “Do The Loop” is an easily identifiable phrase. To those who are unfamiliar with the slogan, it refers to an 8-mile circuit where you can find over 100 artists and craftsmen who are a part of the legendary Arts and Crafts Community in Gatlinburg. Recognized as the largest independent organization of artisans in the U.S., visitors can ride the trolley and stop in at a wide range of unique shops to find the perfect souvenir to take home. In addition to the opportunity to purchase a new trinket or gift, many of the artisans take time to discuss their craft or even give on the spot demonstrations. This relaxing activity is a guaranteed way to make the most out of your Sunday Funday while bringing home a souvenir or two to remember your perfect mini-vacation.
Top It Off With A Drink
After you’ve had your fill of crepes and crafts, stop in at Old Tennessee Distilling Co. for a refreshing cocktail. Located right off Exit 407, our conveniently located local distillery is the perfect way to top off a busy Gatlinburg adventure before heading back home. When you first arrive, try a range of master distilled spirits with our free tasting experience. If you’re still a bit thirsty, try one of our famous $5 cocktails made with only the best spirits on this side of the Mississippi River.
Don’t wait until your next Sunday Funday to stop by for a visit. Our doors are open 7 days a week for visitors to come in for a free tasting, fun merchandise, and our famous $5 cocktails. Plan your visit today and make sure Old Tennessee Distilling Co. is on your list!
