Nestled in the lush, wooded forests of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg is Tennessee’s premier mountain resort destination.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Grotto Falls Trail and Hillbilly Golf. Discover out-of-the-way places like Newfound Gap Road and Roaring Fork. Change things up with these side-trips from Gatlinburg: River Rafting & Tubing (in Hartford), Great Smoky Mountains National Park (Clingmans Dome & Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail) and Tuckaleechee Caverns (in Townsend). Next up on the itinerary: get in on the family fun at The Coaster at Goats on the Roof, get your game on at Mysterious Mansion, examine the collection at Hollywood Star Cars Museum, and kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks.
