Welcome to the Gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains.
With the Great Smoky Mountains National Park attracting over 11 million visitors annually, the quaint town of Gatlinburg hosts millions of visitors every year. It is easy to see why, with the available outdoor fun such as hiking the trails of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, camping, fishing, rafting, kayaking, zip-lining, horseback riding, or even skiing at Ober Gatlinburg. Gatlinburg also offers additional family activities such as discovering the artisans at the Arts and Crafts Community, exploring downtown treasures such as Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, the iconic SkyLift with the newest attraction, the SkyBrige, North America's longest pedestrian suspension bridge in North America. Or ride the Tram to Ober Gatlinburg, The Village, Hollywood Star Car Museum, or experiencing the magic of Anakeesta, one of Gatlinburg’s newest attractions. A vast array of restaurants are available to satisfy whatever hunger you may have, from iconic eateries such as the Pancake Pantry, Peddler Steakhouse, and Alamo Steakhouse to national franchises like Bubba Gump Shrimp, Mellow Mushroom, and Landshark Bar & Grill, and local treasures like Smoky Mountain Brewery and Best Italian Restaurant.
