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. Once a sleepy mountain village, Gatlinburg has transformed into a hub of outdoor activity, offering hiking, rafting, fishing, and horseback riding, and is also home to the state’s only ski resort. Walk through the narrow streets of the rustic, log-cabin themed village before taking a ride up the Gatlinburg Space Needle for sprawling views of the park and surrounding mountains from 104 m (342 ft) up in the air. Use our United States trip itinerary maker to arrange your visit to Gatlinburg and any other destinations in United States that take your fancy.
