Amid the vibrant fall foliage in the Smokies, you’ll find the mountains blanketed with a smoky-like haze. It creates the best setting for a Halloween vacation that celebrates the beauty of fall with a dash of spookiness on the side for those Halloween-loving travelers. Trick-or-treat around Gatlinburg or curl up in your cabin on a cool, crisp night to watch your favorite scary movie. These 5 vacation rentals will let you squeeze all the fun out of this spectacularly spooky season:
