In addition to a terrific downtown new year's celebration complete with a live DJ, a fireworks show, a synchronized LED light show, and a New Year's Eve Ball Drop at the Space Needle, Gatlinburg has numerous venues like Blaine's and the Melting Pot that host special events to bring in the New Year.
While thousands of visitors attend the city-wide new year's party at the foot of the 407-foot Gatlinburg Space Needle, many other vacationers enjoy private parties in their own Gatlinburg cabin.
No matter where you want to celebrate December 31st in Gatlinburg, you'll want a quality lodging to make your stay truly special.
To help you make fantastic memories during your stay, we've made a guide of 5 things to look for in a cabin for your New Year's trip to Gatlinburg.
1. Find A Cabin With A View of Downtown
Staying at a cabin with a lovely mountain view is always a treat, but New Year's can make this experience even better.
When you reserve a cabin with a view of downtown, you'll be able to see the fantastic fireworks and light show at the Gatlinburg Space Needle at the stroke of midnight. In effect, you'll be able to enjoy a beautiful fireworks show from the privacy of your cabin's deck.
Chalet Village area cabins are an especially good place to find cabins with this kind of view.
2. Stay Close To Downtown
Without a doubt, the streets of Gatlinburg are the most exciting place to celebrate the coming new year.
So why not stay close to all the action? Though many of our cabins are nestled in the mountains above Gatlinburg, these properties are often only a short drive away from the biggest attractions in town.
After a terrific night of celebrating the New Year, you can enjoy a short drive back to your cabin rental. For more on this, look through some of our Gatlinburg cabins that are close to downtown.
