We're still going strong

Though the area around Gatlinburg suffered tremendous loss last November, the downtown you know and love is still going strong. The unique attractions, restaurants, hotels, shops, and distilleries are standing strong, and most importantly, awaiting your arrival.

 

The Park is open and greater than ever

Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the most visited National Park in the country, was involved in the wildfires in late November but only .003% was affected. The areas include the popular the Chimney Tops trail along the Bull Head Mountain into the Twin Creeks area. So most of the hiking trails, scenic drives and fishing streams you love are still open and unaffected.  Cades Cove was also untouched and all the historic structures in the Park were preserved.
