Gatlinburg Tennessee

Gatlinburg Tennessee is enclosed on three sides by The Great Smoky Mountains National Park and is a happily frenetic tourist town in the busier seasons with millions pouring in ever year. Gatlinburg Tennessee is only officially home to just over 3,400 people. Gatlinburg Tennessee offers isolated expanses and mountain ridges for camping and trails happily winding along magnificent mountain scenery. Mountain sides are dotted with Gatlinburg chalets and cabins, some overlooking the mountain laurels while others are tucked back by rocky brooks or hollows affording the utmost privacy in serene natural settings. Here anglers revel in 2,115 miles of streams and hikers explore over 850 miles of trail networks. Beyond the mountain cabins lies the city center of Gatlinburg Tennessee where there are many things to see and do.

Gatlinburg's natural paradise is the attraction for some people while others are interested in Gatlinburg attractions closer to town. A hike along one of the many trials in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is still one of the more revered Gatlinburg attractions and is a nice way to get out for an afternoon or a full day. Ripley's Aquarium is another of the fun Gatlinburg attractions to pay a visit to and is open 365 days a year!

Open year-round, the Gatlinburg Skylift to the top of Crocket Mountain provides a spectacular view of the area while the Smoky Mountain Winery is an award winning winery offering a tasting of over 20 of their wines and free day tours of the winery. Both the Mysterious mansion of Gatlinburg and the Ripley's Haunted Adventure offer fun and "terrifying" experiences and are great Gatlinburg attractions to visit with the family.
