1. Plan A Fun Day in the Mountains

Any trip to Gatlinburg would be incomplete without spending some time in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park! Since Gatlinburg is located just outside of the national park boundary, you'll be only minutes away from beautiful waterfalls, impressive overlooks, wildlife, and historic homesteads.

To plan an awesome day in the mountains, check out our guide on the best waterfalls near Gatlinburg or the top sights in the Smokies!

If your group prefers to enjoy the beauty of nature from the comfort of a car, be sure to check out the 11-mile Cades Cove Loop Road or just drive to Newfound Gap or Clingmans Dome high in the mountains.

2. Have A Fun Night Out

3. Go For Whiskey and Wine Tours

When visiting Gatlinburg it's a great idea to sample some moonshine, an old Appalachian favorite: moonshine! This local liquor has deep roots in Gatlinburg's history and now you can try it for yourself at one of Gatlinburg's Downtown Distilleries.

  • The Ole Smoky Moonshine Holler
  • Sugarlands Cellars
  • Doc Collier Moonshine

The original "white lighting" might be too strong for some, but there are plenty of sweetened flavors including apple pie, blackberry, peach, butterscotch, and more!

  • Bootleggers Homemade Wine – Specializing in local classics like muscadine, blackberry, and strawberry wine, this Downtown Gatlinburg winery is known for its variety of sweet, fruit-flavored wines.
