We can’t blame you for wanting to spend time in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. This is one of the most beautiful destinations in the country, thanks in large part to the majestic mountain peaks that stand guard over hundreds of square miles of rolling timberland, sprawling lakes and mighty rivers. It’s no wonder that more than 9 million visitors make their way to our national park each year while also finding time to explore everything that nearby Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and Sevierville have to offer.
To get the most out of a trip to our mountains, you’ll need to plan on staying at least for a weekend, and to really immerse yourself in the full Smoky Mountains experience, it’s best to give yourself a full week. In addition to the national park and its many outdoor wonders, our neighboring communities are packed with fun family attractions, shops and outlet malls, restaurants and much more – so much, in fact, that even a week in the Smokies will barely scratch the surface. But it’s a good place to start.
The best way to begin planning your next family vacation or getaway to the Great Smoky Mountains is to decide on your travel dates and then make your lodging reservations as far in advance as possible. We’ve helped make that step an easy one by providing you with links to some of the area’s hottest hotel and motel properties. Whether you base your final decision on price, location or amenities, we know that when you finally do arrive at your accommodations, you’ll be in very good hands.
