Nestled in the lush, wooded forests of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg is Tennessee’s premier mountain resort destination.

Venture out of the city with trips to River Rafting & Tubing (in Hartford), Sevierville (Tennessee Legend Distillery - Newport Hwy & Eagle Springs Winery) and Great Smoky Mountains National Park (Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail, Cades Cove, & more). Next up on the itinerary: learn about winemaking at Tennessee Homemade Wines, look for all kinds of wild species at Roaring Fork, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Sugarlands Distilling Company, and take in the awesome beauty at Mount LeConte.
