The Gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains

Nestled in the lush, wooded forests of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg is Tennessee’s premier mountain resort destination.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Gatlinburg: Great Smoky Mountains National Park (Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail & Clingmans Dome) and River Rafting & Tubing (in Hartford). There's lots more to do: whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, sample the fine beverages at Ole Smoky, find something for the whole family at Gatlinburg SkyLift Park, and do a tasting at Tennessee Homemade Wines.
