Nestled in the lush, wooded forests of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg is Tennessee’s premier mountain resort destination.
You've now added Biltmore to your itinerary. Do some cultural sightseeing at Tennessee Homemade Wines and Noah Bud Ogle Cabin. Step out of the city life by going to Roaring Fork and Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Explore Gatlinburg's surroundings by going to River Rafting & Tubing (in Hartford) and Wheels Through Time Transportation Museum (in Maggie Valley). There's lots more to do: brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Sugarlands Distilling Company, contemplate the long history of Walker Sisters' Cabin, observe the fascinating underwater world at Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies, and view the masterpieces at Great Smoky Arts and Crafts Community.
