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 Clingmans Dome and Mercier Orchards. Get in touch with nature at Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail and Dry Falls. Explore Gatlinburg's surroundings by going to Scaly Mountain Outdoor Center (in Scaly Mountain), Sunset Rock and Ravenel Park (in Highlands) and Blairsville (Horseback Riding Tours & Brasstown Bald Mountain). Spend the 7th (Thu) exploring nature at Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Next up on the itinerary: identify plant and animal life at Roaring Fork, do a tasting at Tennessee Homemade Wines, take in the dramatic scenery at Laurel Falls, and explore the fascinating underground world of Tuckaleechee Caverns.

For other places to visit, where to stay, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our Gatlinburg tour planner .

Expect a daytime high around 52°F in February, and nighttime lows around 34°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
