Gatlinburg
Nestled in the lush, wooded forests of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg is Tennessee’s premier mountain resort destination.
Change things up with a short trip to Cades Cove in Great Smoky Mountains National Park (about 1h 10 min away). Pack the 29th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at The Island in Pigeon Forge. There's lots more to do: brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Sugarlands Distilling Company, get in on the family fun at Dollywood, steep yourself in history at Walker Sisters' Cabin, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies.

If you are flying in from Estonia, the closest major airports are McGhee Tyson Airport, Asheville Regional Airport and Tri-Cities Regional TN/VA Airport. In January, plan for daily highs up to 10°C, and evening lows to -1°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Wed) so you can travel back home.
