Gatlinburg

Nestled in the lush, wooded forests of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg is Tennessee’s premier mountain resort destination.
Start off your visit on the 23rd (Thu): get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies and then examine the collection at Hollywood Star Cars Museum. Here are some ideas for day two: brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Sugarlands Distilling Company, thentake a memorable tour with Raft Outdoor Adventures, and then take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports.

For traveler tips, photos, maps, and other tourist information, read our Gatlinburg online travel route builder.

Pigeon Forge ©
A tiny town with big tourist appeal, Pigeon Forge bills itself as the "Center of Fun in the Smokies." Just a short drive from the national park protecting the diverse plant and animal life of the Great Smoky Mountains, the town features numerous places to visit, such as bars, restaurants, cafes, theaters, and shops.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Smoky Mountain Deer Farm & Exotic Petting Zoo and Arcade City. Attractions like The Coaster at Goats on the Roof and Zipline make great kid-friendly stops. Step out of Pigeon Forge with an excursion to Tuckaleechee Caverns in Townsend--about 40 minutes away. There's much more to do: get in on the family fun at MagiQuest, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, and try for a hole-in-one at The Track.

Plan my Pigeon Forge trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Pigeon Forge is just a stone's throw from Gatlinburg. In July, daily temperatures in Pigeon Forge can reach °F, while at night they dip to °F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
