Surrounded by the Smokies

We're surrounded by Great Smoky Mountains National Park, America's most popular and visited national park. Whether you stay for two days or two weeks, it will be a vacation in Tennessee you'll remember for a lifetime. Most visitors come back for Smoky Mountain getaways again and again. What starts with parents or grandparents becomes a family tradition.

Nothing can prepare you for the awe-inspiring beauty of the Smokies. You've seen the sunrise, but have you seen the sun reflecting off a forest rolling as far as the eye can see? Ever see fireflies by the millions as they blink in sync? Perhaps you've tasted freshly grilled trout, but have you eaten one that you pulled fresh from a stream? Smoky Mountains National Park offers more than 800 miles of scenic hiking trails, horseback riding, backcountry camping, trout fishing and endless family fun.

There's no better place to appreciate the changing seasons. The greens of spring and summer, the vivid colors of autumn and the snowcapped peaks of winter make Smoky Mountain getaways in Gatlinburg a colorful affair in every season.

You'll see mountain handiwork at its best, created by skillful hands using simple tools.

Back in town, there’s no limit of Gatlinburg attractions.
