Where parents can let loose like kids, relax like adults, and do everything in between.
New moms and dads can load up the stroller or grab a little hand and enjoy the
Riverwalk or one of our three city parks. In the Smokies, there are paved trails at
Sugarlands and Laurel Falls, and if you're in great shape, it's paved all the way to the
top of Clingman's Dome, the highest point in the Smokies. While you’re there, camp,
fish, hike, or just take a scenic drive. Hop out of the car and get absorbed in the
breathtaking scenery. Don’t forget to pack your basket: there are places everywhere to
take a break and enjoy a picnic.
If you want to take it to the streets, downtown Gatlinburg has quaint art galleries and
craft shops tucked away amid eye-popping attractions, shows and great places to eat
for families. There are five malls and over 400 shops, stores and galleries downtown
and over a hundred more on the Arts and Crafts Loop. Grab a bite at one of our
world-famous pancake houses or take the family for a fancy steak dinner. Key down
by watching a Smoky Mountain sunrise or sunset - even the kids will appreciate the
boundless beauty that nature provides.
