Celebrate Mother’s Day Gatlinburg Style

“Of all the rights of women, the greatest is to be a mother.”
Lin Yutang, Chinese writer

Whether you’re a mom yourself or just want to do something nice for the mom in your life, when you  stay at White Oak Lodge and Resort over Mother’s Day (a great gift in itself), you’ll find Gatlinburg has some great ways to celebrate, Smoky Mountain style.

Horseback Riding
Here’s a cool idea for the more outdoorsy mom: a guided horseback ride through the beautiful Smoky Mountain. Rides on scenic park trails are offered lasting from 45 minutes to several hours. Enjoy the pure beauty of the Smokies on a relaxing ride during the perfect time of year.

Alamo Steakhouse
You can’t beat a free filet: Moms get a free filet mignon entrée at Alamo from 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. on Mother’s Day. With two locations in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, Alamo’s outstanding steaks are a Gatlinburg tradition.

Mother’s Day at The Old Mill
Celebrate Mother’s Day at The Old Mill Restaurant or The Old Mill Pottery House Café & Grill on Sunday May 8. The down-home cooking will leave everyone feeling satisfied. Shop the Old Mill stores for additional gifts and souvenirs.

The Melting Pot
A little fondue may be the perfect thing for mom. The Melting Pot restaurant in Gatlinburg is right in the heart of Gatlinburg shopping and attractions, so a little shopping before or after rounds out the day perfectly. Mother’s Day at Melting Pot means a a complimentary rose and free serving of chocolate fondue for mom (with the purchase of any adult entree).

Regardless of what you do this Mother’s Day, Gatlinburg has some great options to make it memorable.
