Nestled in the lush, wooded forests of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg is Tennessee’s premier mountain resort destination.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Tuckaleechee Caverns and The Coaster at Goats on the Roof. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Gatlinburg: Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail (in Great Smoky Mountains National Park), Smoky Mountain River Rat Tubing (in Townsend) and Pisgah Forest (Sliding Rock & Devil's Courthouse). There's lots more to do: let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, find something for the whole family at Arcade City, have some family-friendly fun at The Escape Game Pigeon Forge, and identify plant and animal life at Roaring Fork.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, more things to do, and other tourist information, read our Gatlinburg itinerary builder site .

In August, daily temperatures in Gatlinburg can reach 87°F, while at night they dip to 68°F. On the 12th (Mon), you'll have the morning to explore before heading back home.
