Nestled in the lush, wooded forests of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg is Tennessee’s premier mountain resort destination.
Attractions like Dollywood and The Island in Pigeon Forge make great kid-friendly stops. Explore Gatlinburg's surroundings by going to Cades Cove (in Great Smoky Mountains National Park) and Biltmore Estate (in Asheville). There's still lots to do: meet the residents at Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies, take in the awesome beauty at Mount LeConte, examine the collection at Titanic Museum Attraction, and look for all kinds of wild species at Roaring Fork.

To find maps, where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Gatlinburg trip planner.

In December, daytime highs in Gatlinburg are 53°F, while nighttime lows are 36°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
