As a travel planner, I always get asked by parents, "what is there for my teenage kids to do in the Smokies?"  I would say the list is pretty infinite.  Here are 10 quick ideas:
River Rafting is fun for the family!
1.  Dollywood & Splash Country
2.  Hike the Smoky Mountains & the Parks' trails
4.  Shopping for school, holidays, & discounts
5.  Photography or picture-taking of family & friends
6.  Ziplining (A new craze here in East Tennessee). It's exciting & fun!
7.  River-Rafting trip (Located on the North Carolina-Tennessee Border generally)
Lakes, Rivers, & Creeks in Tennessee

8.  Visit Aquarium of the Smokies, The Titanic, or the many Museums in Gatlinburg-Pigeon Forge area
9.  Miniature or Regulation Golf (many courses for your enjoyment!)
10.Rent a cabin where they will enjoy pool tables, foosball, hot tubs, swimming pools, & wifi internet access.  Choose Aunt Bug's Cabin Rentals when your family visits the Gatlinburg area for luxury Gatlinburg cabin rentals!)

This list should get you started on coming up with a vacation plan and schedule!  Remember each season provides different options for your family's enjoyment.  Don't forget the different festivals, events, & concerts in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, & Sevierville throughout the Spring, Summer, Fall, & Winter Seasons!  The Smoky Mountains are so beautiful that your kids will be inspired to get outside & enjoy nature with their friends or siblings.  You might want to remember your camera, journal, or smartphone to capture video or pics of your Gatlinburg trip
