Gatlinburg

Gatlinburg ©
Nestled in the lush, wooded forests of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg is Tennessee’s premier mountain resort destination.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Hollywood Star Cars Museum and The Folk Art Center. Step off the beaten path and head to Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail and Bush's Beans Visitor Center. Venture out of the city with trips to Zipline (in Hartford), Saint Paul Mountain Vineyards (in Hendersonville) and Sevierville (Tennessee Legend Distillery - Newport Hwy, Forbidden Caverns, &more). There's still lots to do: sample the fine beverages at Ole Smoky Whiskey Barrelhouse, have some family-friendly fun at Gatlin's Escape Games, trek along Grotto Falls Parking, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Alum Cave Trail.
