Go on a Shamrock Hunt with the Kids
Have some fun with the kids by telling them you are going on a shamrock hunt in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park! This is a fun way to get your children interested in St. Patrick’s Day as well as to get some great exercise on one of the park’s many scenic trails. There are several recommended hiking trails for children that have opportunities for wildlife viewing and access to historical buildings. March is also a wonderful time to be in the park as the weather starts getting warmer and some wildflowers may have even started to bloom. Who knows, if you look closely enough you may just spot a shamrock along the way.
