Gatlinburg: A Family Vacation Tradition
Gatlinburg, Tennessee is a quaint little town nestled in the mountains bordering Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It is one of the earliest settlements in the Smoky Mountains, and it is popular with vacationers.
With a population of just 4,184 (2015), this small town provides guests a mountain experience second to none. There is something exciting to do for everyone; from solitary travelers to newlyweds or retired couples.
The majestic Smoky Mountains surround Gatlinburg. On many mornings, a smoky fog rises from the valley and creates a picturesque mountain view.
Downtown is best experienced on foot. We suggest that you leave your car in the parking garage and walk when you are in the downtown area. It is suitable for walking, and parking can be a challenge. This isn’t a negative, since you will want to walk anyway.
The city of Gatlinburg is famous for several things, and couples visiting on their honeymoon is high on the list. Family vacations to Gatlinburg are a tradition we believe is well warranted. Many families make a visit to Gatlinburg an annual event. Who can blame them? It’s beautiful and fun!
