Wanting to spend your Memorial Day Weekend outside with family and friends? There is no better place than right here in Pigeon Forge! This area is covered with places to visit and explore!

River Rat Tubing’s main tubing outpost is located 15 miles from downtown Pigeon Forge, in Townsend, Tennessee. They offer a variety of watersports perfect to cool you off on a hot summer day! From kayaking and tubing on mild rapids, to white water rafting in larger rapids, they have it all and fun for the whole family! Wondering what to wear on these adventures? Stages West Chacos are great for everything River Rat Tubing has to offer! Chacos supply the grip of a hiking boot for the river bottom, yet the functionality of a sandal with the open toes and straps. They dry quick and will stay secure to your foot through rapids. They are perfect for tubing and white water rafting!

Water isn’t your thing? You can strap on Chacos and drive into Gatlinburg for a beautiful hike! On such a hot day, you will be thankful for wearing Chacos to keep your feet cool and allowing them to breathe. Enjoying hiking with your family is a great way to bond this memorial day weekend. If you decide to go on a hike, make sure to pack lots of water!

If you would rather relax and spend time with friends and family to celebrate Memorial Day, think about hosting a barbeque. Play some music and grill out for a relaxing night. Nothing beats full bellies, happy hearts, and laughing with the ones closest to you!

Whether you choose to enjoy some watersports, go for a hike, or host a barbeque, going outside to explore Pigeon Forge and the surrounding areas is a great way to enjoy your Memorial Day weekend!
