Unique Girlfriends’ Getaway packages now offered in the Smokies

Sometimes ladies need more than one dinner, one drink or one night out together.  This is apparent as the popularity of “Girlfriends’ Getaway” vacations continues to grow.  Located in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, Sevierville, Tenn., is one destination that has become a trendy spot for these trips. Last year, the area played host to a national Great Girlfriends’ Getaway contest and now this lively destination is introducing unique and specially-tailored vacation packages for these ‘female-only’ trips.

Packages include everything from photography classes to whitewater rafting to shopping and even getting complete makeovers.  Along with a variety of activities, each package includes a stay at one of Sevierville’s best hotels.

“Thanks to our location, we are able to offer a wide variety of unique and enjoyable experiences in one place that you would typically only be able to enjoy by traveling to multiple destinations,” said Amanda Marr, Sevierville Chamber of Commerce marketing director.  “We give the ladies the opportunity to go ziplining and tour the Smoky Mountains via helicopter one day and then enjoy shopping and a personal style makeover the next.”

The following packages are available along with the option to create a customized getaway:
* Different Point of View – helicopter tour, safari, photography class
* High Flying Adventure – ziplining, helicopter tour, Lumberjack Feud show
* Beat the Heat – whitewater rafting, river tubing
* Back to Nature – Ripley’s Aquarium, photography class, safari
* Be a Kid Again – NASCAR Speedpark, minor league baseball game, WonderWorks
* Shopping Safari – Cirque De Chine show, personal makeover/shopping, safari
* Laughter is the Best Medicine – Comedy Barn Theater, miniature golf

Along with the introduction of these girlfriends’ getaway packages, the Sevierville Chamber of Commerce is also releasing a series of webisodes featuring last year’s Great Girlfriends’ Getaway contest winners and the experience and the activities they shared during their trip.  These webisodes will be released every week via fb.com/Sevierville and on www.OfficialGirlfriendsGetaway.com
