Families enjoy Gatlinburg for the variety of attractions and kids fun parks, in addition to the great lodging deals available for families. The Smokies are perfect because they are centrally located to many major cities and provide a quiet escape from the daily grind.
Gatlinburg has also become known as the “Honeymoon Capital” with several thousand honeymoon retreats and suites, attracting more brides to be with each coming season. You can have the picturesque wedding of your dreams on top of a mountain, next to a waterfall, or in your cozy log cabin.

Peak season in the Smokies is definitely Summer time, when school is out. The fall brings an entirely different type of attraction, the changing foliage. The colors shine brilliantly for only a couple of weeks, usually in early October.
Gatlinburg is also home to Tennessee’s only Ski Resort, Ober Gatlinburg.
