3 Reasons to Take Advantage of the Gatlinburg Trolleys this Summer
When you come to visit the Smokies and stay in Gatlinburg, you may notice trolleys driving up and down the Parkway around downtown Gatlinburg. The Gatlinburg trolleys are a great choice to use if your destination is further down the parkway and you want a break from walking.
We understand that you want the best deal you can get and the best bang for your buck. We want that for you, too! Here’s what makes the Gatlinburg trolleys so great this summer!
1. They’re free!
From June 17 to August 12, there is a special trolley that travels the parkway in Gatlinburg that is 100% free! You can save a few bucks if you’ve got a big group of friends or family who want to ride around downtown Gatlinburg. Usually the fare isn’t much, but when it’s free for that long you should definitely take advantage of it! And the free rides last all day as long as the trolleys run!
2. Save on parking!
Parking in the different lots throughout Gatlinburg is convenient, but can pose a bit of problem if you have a larger group with multiple vehicles as those parking fees can definitely add up. If you’re staying in one of the hotels in town, you can easily locate the closest trolley stop and hop on without having to worry about moving your car and looking for somewhere to park. This saves you both time and money, and you can use the money you saved on parking to buy a souvenir or some taffy or fudge from one of the many sweets shops on the parkway!
3. Great for kids!
If you’ve got kids that are getting a little fussy, then try taking them on the Gatlinburg trolleys. Sometimes the best remedy is to take a ride and look out the window as you pass different sights and people watch. While you’re on the trolley, you may even spot an attraction that you think you may like and can come back to later. Plus, since the Gatlinburg trolley on the parkway is free for the summer, you can get on the trolley as many times as you need!
And for just $2 per day you can have unlimited access to all of the trolleys serving Gatlinburg – that means you get to save a few extra bucks and you should definitely take advantage of it! This fun mode of transportation saves you even more by not worrying about parking, and that is just the icing on the cake! On vacation, you want to save as much money as possible, and thanks to the Gatlinburg trolleys this summer, you can do just that!
