Nestled in the beautiful Smoky Mountains of Eastern Tennessee, Gatlinburg awaits you with open arms. There is just something so special about a visit to this place. It’s a very small town in and of itself. You’ll want to park your car and walk around. Really! Everything is within an easy stroll.
Our visit was in December. Gatlinburg is not just a summer destination, as there are plenty of things to do even in the mild winter. If you like to ski, Ober is right smack dab in the middle of town. Well, ok, the gondola that will take you to Ober is there. Once again, you can walk the whole time you’re in town.
This picture was taken from the gondola, showing the mountainscape and how the town is nestled comfortably right at the doorstep to the Smoky Mountain National Park.
There are major hotel brands available here too, so if you want to stick with a brand you know and love, like the Hilton Garden Inn, there’s a gorgeous one here. Family-owned properties are also plentiful here in Gatlinburg. There’ something for everyone.
Come take in the fresh air, the delicious food and the easygoing and friendly atmosphere. And did I mention the food? Oh my goodness are you in for a treat!
Above all things, the best part of Gatlinburg is the people. Expect a warm and friendly welcome. The wonderful people of Gatlinburg, Tennessee will greet you with a welcome that will make you want to come back again and again. If you aren’t careful, you may make a few new friends as well.
We loved our visit and can’t wait to return in the summertime!
