Nestled in the lush, wooded forests of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg is Tennessee’s premier mountain resort destination.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Tennessee Homemade Wines and The North Carolina Arboretum. Change things up with these side-trips from Gatlinburg: Asheville (Lexington Glassworks, Spas & Wellness, & more) and Great Smoky Mountains National Park (Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail & Andrews Bald Trail). The adventure continues: meet the residents at Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies, revel in the low prices at Tanger Outlets Sevierville, hike along Charlies Bunion, and stroll through Middle Prong Trail.

In December in Gatlinburg, expect temperatures between 53°F during the day and 36°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
