Sevierville

Lying at the foothills of the Great Smokies, Sevierville is a friendly tourist town with plenty of Southern charm.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Eagle Springs Winery and River Rafting & Tubing. For shopping fun, head to Smoky Mountain Knife Works or Greeneville Antique Market. Venture out of the city with trips to Andrew Johnson National Cemetery (in Greeneville) and Morristown (Crockett Tavern Museum & Panther Creek State Park). There's much more to do: brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Sevier Distilling Company, examine the collection at Tennessee Museum of Aviation, explore the different monuments and memorials at Revolutionary War Graveyard, and get interesting insight from Tours.

Sevier County travel guide

Distilleries · Theme Parks · Dinner Theaters
Prior to the arrival of European settlers in the mid-18th century, Sevier County housed semi-nomadic Native American tribes for as many as 20,000 years. Using the region primarily as hunting grounds, the Cherokees dominated the area until they were forcefully marched out of their territory on the infamous "Trail of Tears" in the 1830s. Today, Sevier County encompasses over 30 percent of the area covered by the national park protecting the Great Smoky Mountains. No longer reliant on traditional subsistence farming, the county is now one of the nation's major vacation destinations, offering visitors a chance to explore the largely untamed mountain range, one of the country's few World Heritage Sites. Add in several renowned tourist attractions, such as aquariums and theme parks, and you have plenty of vacation ideas for the area.
