Nestled in the lush, wooded forests of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg is Tennessee’s premier mountain resort destination.
Grovewood Village and Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site will appeal to history buffs. Get a sense of the local culture at Hollywood Star Cars Museum and Sugarland Cellars. Get out of town with these interesting Gatlinburg side-trips: Cataloochee Valley (in Great Smoky Mountains National Park), Asheville (The North Carolina Arboretum, Lexington Glassworks, & more) and Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail (in Great Smoky Mountains National Park). Make the 21st (Sat) an awe-inspiring day at Pisgah National Forest. There's lots more to do: admire all the interesting features of Gatlinburg Scenic Overlook, examine the collection at Salt and Pepper Shaker Museum, sample the fine beverages at Sugarlands Distilling Company, and explore the wealth of natural beauty at Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
