Tubing in the Smokies is a great way to relax, beat the heat, and take in the scenery. Load up the family, a picnic lunch, and some tubes and hit the river. There are some great spots in Greenbriar and along Little River Road. Townsend offers opportunities to rent tubes and provides bus shuttles for those who don't have tubes of their own or want to pile a bunch of wet people in their car.

Hiking is also fun in the summer time. Hike to a waterfall and enjoy a picturesque, sunny spot for lunch.
