Gatlinburg

— 9 nights

The Gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains

Nestled in the lush, wooded forests of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg is Tennessee’s premier mountain resort destination.
Get out of town with these interesting Gatlinburg side-trips: Great Smoky Mountains National Park (Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail, Cosby Picnic Area, &more). Spend the 31st (Mon) exploring nature at Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 3rd (Thu) at Dollywood. There's lots more to do: brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Sugarlands Distilling Company, do a tasting at Tennessee Homemade Wines, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies, and whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Gatlinburg holiday maker.

Erie to Gatlinburg is an approximately 8-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of bus and car. When traveling from Erie in August, plan for a bit warmer days and about the same nights in Gatlinburg: temperatures range from 87°F by day to 68°F at night. You will have some time to spend on the 7th (Mon) before leaving for home.

The Volunteer State
Divided by law, geography, and custom into three major regions, represented by the three stars on state's flag, Tennessee boasts a distinctive musical heritage that includes elements of bluegrass, country-western, and blues. With a countryside as diverse as its people, Tennessee includes landscapes ranging from a mountainous region in the east to the lowlands of the west, with gently rolling hills in the middle. For a well-rounded vacation, you can hike remote mountain trails in the morning and explore the crowded bars of Nashville in the evening. Visit the urban attractions, such as Elvis Presley's former residence in Memphis, but don't miss a chance to spend some time in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, situated in the eastern part of the state.
