Gatlinburg

Nestled in the lush, wooded forests of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg is Tennessee’s premier mountain resort destination.
Start off your visit on the 16th (Tue): kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks. Here are some ideas for day two: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies, do a tasting at Tennessee Homemade Wines, sample the fine beverages at Sugarlands Distilling Company, sample the fine beverages at Ole Smoky, thenbrush up on your knowledge of spirits at Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine, and finally sample the fine beverages at Tennessee Shine Company.

To find where to stay, maps, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Gatlinburg road trip site.

New York City to Gatlinburg is an approximately 5.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of bus and car. When traveling from New York City in March, plan for somewhat warmer days and about the same nights in Gatlinburg: temperatures range from 60°F by day to 39°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel to Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
