Top Mother-Daughter Gatlinburg Vacation Ideas


When a mother and daughter vacation together, they’re making new memories while they enjoy reminiscing about old ones! Gatlinburg is the ideal place for any mom and daughter to have just-us-girls fun like these outings.

Step Back Into History

Lace-up your walking shoes for the “Explore a Simpler Time” Walking Tour. This guided walk in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park takes you to a 19th-century barn, spring house, and restored cabin. Your guide unveils the Smokies’ natural side too, teaching you about native wildlife and plants.

Watch Expert Crafters at Work

Moms and daughters of all ages will love seeing how Appalachian crafters create treasures at the Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community. These are heirlooms for your family’s next generation! Whether you want a wooden bowl or a silver necklace, a classic quilt, or a hand-woven basket, you’ll find something for every taste.

Pamper Yourselves

Share a day of spa luxury, indulging in facials, massages, or mani-pedis side by side. Try St. Somewhere Spa or Fox Place Spa, or book a massage therapist to come to your cabin for private spa treatments–you won’t have to drive anywhere!

Take a Relaxing Ride Through Cades Cove

Cades Cove is a peaceful valley full of wildlife and history. See it at a slower pace, just like the early settlers did: Take a guided carriage ride, horseback ride, or hayride with Cades Cove Riding Stables.

Get Nostalgic at the Salt and Pepper Shaker Museum

This charming, family-owned museum will have you sharing memories about growing up! Among the 20,000 pairs of shakers, you’re sure to find some you remember from your own home or grandma’s house.

Shop and Dine at Anakeesta

Retail therapy is magical at Anakeesta’s Firefly Village! Shop for sparkling jewelry, elegant candles, clothes, toys, housewares and kitchenwares, locally made jams and jellies, soaps, Smokies souvenirs, and much more. Then relish great food served among breathtaking views, whether you choose steaks at Cliff Top or BBQ at the Smokehouse.

Hang Out at Your Vacation Cabin

Spend time together at a cozy Gatlinburg cabin. Stretch out on the deck and sip coffee or wine while you catch up on each other’s lives. Share your favorite TV binges with each other on your cabin’s flat-screen TVs. Cook together in the fully equipped kitchen, making beloved family dishes. Reserve a private rental cabin now for your mom and daughter getaway!
