Nestled in the lush, wooded forests of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg is Tennessee’s premier mountain resort destination.
Attractions like River Rafting & Tubing and The Island in Pigeon Forge make great kid-friendly stops. Explore Gatlinburg's surroundings by going to Great Smoky Mountains National Park (Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail, Metcalf Bottoms Picnic Area, & more) and 5 Rivers Adventures (in Hartford). Spend the 10th (Sat) exploring nature at Great Smoky Mountains National Park. There's lots more to do: make a splash at Dollywood, find something for the whole family at Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster, tour the pleasant surroundings at Chimneys Picnic Area, and brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Sugarlands Distilling Company.
