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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail and Laurel Falls. Get in touch with nature at River Rafting & Tubing and Chimney Tops Trail. Explore Gatlinburg's surroundings by going to Clingmans Dome (in Great Smoky Mountains National Park) and Tuckaleechee Caverns (in Townsend). There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Roaring Fork, view the masterpieces at Great Smoky Arts and Crafts Community, cruise along Gatlinburg Scenic Overlook, and sample the fine beverages at Sugarlands Distilling Company.

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.
