Nestled in the lush, wooded forests of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg is Tennessee’s premier mountain resort destination.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Dollywood and The Island in Pigeon Forge. Change things up with a short trip to Biltmore Estate in Asheville (about 1h 35 min away). Next up on the itinerary: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies, kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, identify plant and animal life at Roaring Fork, and do a tasting at Tennessee Homemade Wines.
