Gatlinburg Travel Resources

Gatlinburg is an increasingly popular tourist destination located on the border of Smoky Mountain National Park in Eastern Tennessee.  Once a logging hotbed, Gatlinburg has been redefined as wonderful location to bring families for vacation.
One of the main attractions in Gatlinburg is the Smoky Mountain National Park, and it is often credited with really defining everything the city is about.  There are hiking and biking trails through the park, with breath-taking views, and a trail for all ages. If you encounter any other hikers on your journeys through the Park, be sure to say ‘hello’ – Gatlinburg is often regarded as super friendly city, with a strong sense of community.

There’s also Ober Gatlinburg, which is the city’s only ski resort, and definitely a family friendly mountain.

The other main attractions for those visiting Gatlinburg are manmade: Dollywood and Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies. Dollywood, named after Dolly Parton, is an amusement park right down the street in Pigeon Forge and Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies is a cool aquarium, different than most in that it covers a wide range of topics not often found in aquariums.

But the best reason to come to Gatlinburg is the people. There’s just something about being surrounded by mountains on all sides that calms the soul, and the people that call Gatlinburg home definitely embody this. So, use the Gatlinburg travel resources below, and start planning your trip today!
