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 Salt and Pepper Shaker Museum and Bush's Beans Visitor Center. Step off the beaten path and head to Grotto Falls Parking and Chimney Tops Trail. Venture out of the city with trips to Sevierville (Tennessee Legend Distillery - Newport Hwy, Forbidden Caverns, &more), Zipline (in Hartford) and Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail (in Great Smoky Mountains National Park). There's still lots to do: have some family-friendly fun at Gatlin's Escape Games, examine the collection at Hollywood Star Cars Museum, get in on the family fun at Ripley's Moving Theater, and get advice or help at The Folk Art Center.
