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.
Explore Gatlinburg's surroundings by going to Great Smoky Mountains National Park (Foothills Parkway Southwest Parking & Cades Cove). There's much more to do: sample the fine beverages at Sugarlands Distilling Company, head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, learn about winemaking at Tennessee Homemade Wines, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Roaring Fork.

For maps, ratings, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the Gatlinburg holiday site.

New York City to Gatlinburg is an approximately 3.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of bus and car. Plan for little chillier nights when traveling from New York City in October since evenings lows in Gatlinburg dip to 51°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Sun) to allow time to fly back 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.
