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.
Kids will enjoy Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies and Dollywood. The adventure continues: take in the waterfront at The Island in Pigeon Forge, take in nature's colorful creations at Parrot Mountain & Gardens, get in on the family fun at Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster, and see the interesting displays at Titanic Museum Attraction.

For traveler tips, where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Gatlinburg trip planner.

Indianapolis to Gatlinburg is an approximately 7-hour car ride. You can also fly; or do a combination of bus, subway, and car. Traveling from Indianapolis in March, expect Gatlinburg to be a bit warmer, temps between 60°F and 39°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Mon) early enough to drive 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.
