About Gatlinburg
Cradled by Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg surrounds visitors in natural splendor, all the while offering quaint comforts and family fun.

Gatlinburg plays a vital role as the gateway to the very popular Great Smoky Mountains National Park. With 500,000 acres of forest and 800 miles of hiking trails, the opportunities for hiking, fishing, and camping are nearly endless. And with over 200 species of birds, 60 native mammals, and the most diverse salamander population in the world, there are plenty of chances to glimpse local wildlife.

There’s an abundance of other ways to enjoy the great outdoors around Gatlinburg. Nearby rivers are popular whitewater rafting spots. Golfers will also find plenty of chances to practice their swings. There’s even skiing in winter. Off-road tours and an aerial tramway offer more ways to witness the area’s natural beauty.

Downtown, visitors can stroll among shops selling candy, souvenirs, and other wares; or visit a popular family attraction such as Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies.

Tennessee culture and history is the focus of the Heritage Trail, with stops in Gatlinburg (and around the state). The Gatlinburg History Trail gives visitors a glimpse into people and events that have shaped the town.
