This center and its attentive rangers will help you scout out all the things to do in Great Smoky Mountains National Park . If you are arriving from North Carolina, make a pitstop at the Oconoluftee Visitor Center, and watch for herds of elk who might be foraging.

With a map and directions, head out on a trail that is right for you. If driving is more your style, choose a scenic auto route. Some of the highest Smoky Mountain views are within an hour's drive of downtown.

Hiking on 900 miles of trails is the most popular activity in the park. Walk beside spring-fed creeks under the canopy of mixed deciduous and conifer trees. The park is home to more than 1,400 species of flowering plants, including mountain magnolias, wild azaleas, mountain laurels, orchids, and rhododendrons.

Wherever you go to set up camp, picnic, or fly fish, be sure to stop, look, and listen. These moments atop a mountain peak or beside a whitewater river will remain with you for the rest of your days.

Clingmans Dome Observation Tower

Clingmans Dome is the highest point in Tennessee and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. At 6,643 feet, the Clingmans Dome Observation Tower is a one-hour ascent by car from downtown. Sunrise and sunset on clear days are the best times to see views that span 100 miles over the misty mountains.

Sunrise on Clingmans Dome

The observation tower rises 45 feet above Old Smoky to behold the panorama of Tennessee and neighboring Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia. Once you arrive at the Clingmans Dome parking lot, take the half-mile paved walkway to the base of the tower and follow the concrete ramp to the top. On the way up, you cross the world-renowned Appalachian Trail, which meanders all the way to Maine. Interpretation signs at the tower inform you about the peaks and towns below, including Gatlinburg.

Cades Cove Loop Road

Head to Cades Cove Loop Road for a scenic drive or bicycle tour into the pastoral countryside of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Depending on the slow-moving traffic and number of stops you make, it can take two to four hours to complete the 11-mile journey . With more than two million visitors each year, plan to arrive early in the morning. The lineup can stretch for many miles, especially during the season of autumn leaves.

Once home to a community of settlers, the area draws tourists with its picturesque rural meadows, pioneer homesteads, churches, and mountain views. It's well-known for a hike to Abrams Falls. In addition to grazing horses, you are likely to see browsing deer and black bears.

Official site:

Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies

Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies submerges you in a marine world where having fun is the focus of your underwater experience. Throughout your tour, you are surrounded by massive exhibits containing swimming creatures large and small. Ripley's Glass Bottom Boat Adventure presents sea life from a different perspective.

Many exhibits are interactive to enhance learning opportunities. This includes stepping into a see-through glass tunnel that provides a 360-degree view of sharks and other ocean predators swimming by. At the large shallow lagoon that is home to three species of stingrays, you can safely touch their backs as they swim close to the edge of the tank.

Visitors love to gather in the Penguin Playhouse for wildlife interactions. In the playhouse, go nose to beak with the curious residents of this penguin colony. Whether you connect with them above or below the water, it's a treat to gawk at each other!

Lift to Anakeesta

Anakeesta–the Cherokee word for "high ground"–is an award-winning theme park where you can spend a couple of hours or a whole day. Top attractions include the treetop skywalk and 880-foot skybridge hovering 50 feet above the 70-acre rainforest. Grab your partner and duke it out on the dueling zipline tour . Descend 1,600 feet on the Rail Runner Mountain Coaster.

Half the adventure is riding the Chondola to the 600-foot summit , where you disembark into a variety show of things to do. Throughout your visit, stop to admire the best view of the Smoky Mountains from downtown Gatlinburg. A cornucopia of nine food and drink outlets keeps you fueled for what's around the next bend.

AnaVista Tower

Ober Gatlinburg Aerial Tramway

Ober Gatlinburg is a ski resort and amusement park offering year-round recreation. The complex features a 30-minute chairlift to a scenic lookout, indoor ice-skating rink, ski runs, an alpine slide, mini golf, and Kiddie Land. Instead of driving the steep and twisty road to the top, hop aboard the two-mile Aerial Tramway to Ober Gatlinburg from downtown Gatlinburg.

The Wildlife Encounter area at Ober Gatlinburg provides viewing opportunities of black bears, river otters, and bobcats within habitat enclosures. A short trail leads to alpine meadows, wildflowers, and lookouts from Mount Harrison. At speeds up to 25 miles per hour, the Ski Mountain Coaster plummets through a half-mile of tight turns and rollercoaster dips.

Ober Gatlinburg needs no enhancements but here they are: seven restaurants and a multilevel concourse featuring 15 stores.

Gatlinburg Strip and the Gatlinburg Space Needle

The Gatlinburg Strip is a mini version of the Las Vegas Strip that packs the mile-long corridor with amusements. In addition to places to stay, the strip is a crazy quilt of wax museums, escape games, arcades, axe-throwing competitions, craft demonstrations, candy workshops, carnival rides, and a gazillion stores in back alleyways. Every year, countless pizza slices and scoops of ice cream are consumed, and the upturned hats of music-making buskers are filled with dollar bills.

At any point along the strip, you'll spot the 407-foot Gatlinburg Space Needle piercing blue skies and starry nights. This is where the New Year's Eve Ball drops and the Pyrotechnics Show explodes. Two glass elevators lift visitors to the observation deck for unforgettable views.

Gatlinburg Skylift

Skylift Park includes the most thrilling walk in Gatlinburg, the Skybridge. The renowned Skylift is an open-air chairlift that transports you from the Gatlinburg Strip to the park atop Crockett Mountain. Skylift Park includes feats of engineering that place you in the sky above the gorgeous landscape that surrounds Gatlinburg.

SkyTrail combines three types of footpaths into one. From the SkyDeck , a cantilevered boardwalk is suspended off a cliff. The boardwalk ends where two rope bridges start, creating a gateway to four viewing platforms of the Tulip Tower. From here, a path follows the ridge to SkyPark's jewel in the crown: SkyBridge.

Skybridge in Gatlinburg

Vertigo-defying visitors step onto the SkyBridge to cross a 700-foot single span that is 500 feet above Gatlinburg . A 30-foot section of transparent glass in the middle of the bridge is all that separates you from the depths below. The bridge completes the loop that returns you to the SkyDeck.

Once you've caught your breath, re-fuel at the SkyCenter with its spectacular view of downtown and the Smoky Mountains beyond. Time your visit to celebrate the year-end Lights Over Gatlinburg event. Skylift staff string 60,000 bulbs to illuminate the park and create a 200-foot tunnel of light on the SkyBridge.

Address: 765 Parkway, Gatlinburg, Tennessee

Roaring Fork grist mill

Follow Old Cherokee Road out of downtown Gatlinburg to reach the start of the one-way Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail. This loop road is one of the most popular drives when visitors come to the Smoky Mountains. With trailheads and historical pitstops along the narrow windy road, plan to spend hours completing the 5.5-mile loop.

Before heading out on the trail, pick up a copy of a booklet to the park's motor trails. Information about turn-of-the-century pioneer cabins, small-scale farming, and grist mills provide an intriguing historical backdrop to the glorious waterfalls, creeks, and old-growth you'll see along the way. Two of the most popular waterfalls in the park are accessed by hiking trails from the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail: Rainbow Falls and Grotto Falls .

Great Smoky Arts and Craft Community

During your visit to Gatlinburg, you will notice many references to its community of artisans. The Great Smoky Arts and Crafts Community represents the largest collection of independent artists in North America .

In an eight-mile loop east of Gatlinburg, you can connect with artists in their workshops and galleries and inspect their creations. Browse more than 100 shops if you're looking for gifts. Hop aboard the Gatlinburg Trolley and follow the yellow route. It covers the eight-mile Glades and Buckhorn Road loop, with stops at places to eat.

White water rafting on the Ocoee River in Tennessee

The 18,000-square-foot Nantahala Outdoor Center (NOC) is the largest and closest outfitter to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park at the south end of the Gatlinburg Strip. Before heading out for a hike, check trail conditions at the front door.

Dating back to 1972, NOC is a pioneer in white water rafting tours and wilderness skills training. Consult with its outdoor guides for professional advice about your next outdoor adventure. All guides are certified in rescue and wilderness survival. While visiting NOC, receive a discount when you book a river adventure on one of six celebrated white water routes in the Smokies.

Hollywood Star Cars Museum

The Hollywood Star Cars Museum is a fun diversion for young and old walking the Gatlinburg Strip. Featuring more than 45 cars used in Hollywood movies, the collection includes vehicles from Gone in 60 Seconds , The Fast and the Furious, and Days of Thunder . Other famous favorites include the original Batmobile from the 1960s TV show, Batman (as well as a Batmobile from 1992's Batman Returns ), and Herbie from the Disney movie franchise of the same name.

Vehicles on show were owned or driven by Michael Jackson; Elvis Presley; James Dean; and local legend, Dolly Parton. If you can't tour the whole museum, admire the fins and chrome from the sidewalk.

To help you find the perfect place to stay at a rate that works for you, we recommend these highly rated hotels in Gatlinburg, each with easy access to downtown attractions and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park:

Luxury Hotels :

  • For those seeking a luxurious stay that's close to a variety of things to see and do in and around Gatlinburg, The Lodge at Buckberry Creek is an excellent choice. This luxury mountain retreat offers spacious accommodations with fireplaces and whirlpool tubs, relaxing in-room massages, and easy access to hiking trails.
  • Other great luxury options in the heart of the action are the Mountain Village Inn and Baskins Creek Condominiums , both particularly popular with larger groups and families for their well-appointed, modern condo-style units (complete with kitchens).

Mid-Range Hotels :

  • Good centrally located choices in the mid-range category include Courtyard Gatlinburg , which features well-appointed rooms plus great amenities, including a fun log-cabin-style restaurant, an outdoor pool, and a large hot tub.
  • Another mid-range option with a convenient location worth considering is the Hilton Garden Inn Gatlinburg Downtown , a three-star hotel near the main street, which features comfortable rooms, an indoor pool, a hot tub, and fire pit.

Budget Hotels :

  • A great option for the budget conscious is the Quality Inn & Suites Gatlinburg , which offers comfortable rooms (hot breakfast included) and a good-sized seasonal outdoor pool.
  • Other budget options worthy of consideration include Clarion Pointe Downtown , a two-star hotel offering free Wi-Fi and breakfast, plus an outdoor pool (seasonal), and Econo Lodge Inn & Suites on the River , which offers a number of larger suites with kitchenettes (breakfast is included).

Waterfalls in Great Smoky Mountains National Park

  • See the Waterfalls : The Smoky Mountains are home to more waterfalls than you could ever hope to see in a single visit. This is thanks to the extreme rainfall (an average of 85 inches a year) and the spectacularly steep mountains. A convenient way to see some of the most beautiful falls is an organized tour.
  • Sights of the Smokies : For those seeking a more immersive, day-long experience – and all under the watchful eye of a knowledgeable, dedicated guide – you may want to consider the Sights of the Smokies All Day Tour . Highlights of this eight-hour adventure include learning about the history of the region through visits to historic sites including the mill at Pigeon Forge, dating back to 1830, plus Wears Valley, which played an important role in the Civil War. Other stops include historic Townsend, followed by a drive along the scenic Foothills Parkway West. (The tour includes bus transportation, and an optional lunch is available as an upgrade.)
  • Hit the Road in Great Smoky Mountain National Park : Few regions of the US offer so much stunning scenery in a destination as easy to reach as Great Smoky Mountains National Park. With three entrances, it's easy to plot a route through the park that will have you drive through the most scenic parts, and still have you back at the hotel in plenty of time for a late lunch or dinner. Better still, take a picnic, and take your time. Starting along the Newfound Gap Road, you'll find plenty of good excuses to stop, be it at the Sugarlands Visitor Center or somewhere along the beautiful Greenbrier, a stretch of road that will lead you to some of the park's most beautiful wildflowers. Be sure to grab a park map.

Chattanooga (Choo! Choo!) : The delightful, small city of Chattanooga makes a great base from which to explore Tennessee. The city is famous for its connection to the railway, and visitors are always pleased to find the city's original 1909 railroad station intact (it's now a lovely hotel, including some old carriages for rooms). And thanks to a great preservation effort, it's possible to take a rail journey on a historic steam train run by the Tennessee Valley Railroad.

  • 7 of the Most Walkable Towns in Tennessee

While the majority of the 126 million domestic travelers who visit Tennessee each year head to big city destinations like Nashville, Memphis , and Chattanooga, those in the know will spend time exploring some of this Southern state’s smaller communities. For these folks, Tennessee’s best small towns offer a truly authentic experience, boasting pretty much everything the bigger destinations have but without the crowds… and with everything within walking distance.

From the Appalachian Mountains in the east to the Mississippi River in the west, these communities offer a more intimate experience with well-preserved historic districts, picturesque main streets, and a wealth of local attractions that can be easily explored on foot. For ideas and inspiration, check out these seven of the most walkable towns in Tennessee.

Street view of popular tourist city of Gatlinburg, Tennessee.

Known as the "Gateway to the Smokies" for its location at the entrance of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park , the small mountain resort community of Gatlinburg is undoubtedly the most visited of the towns included on this list. All told, some 14 million Americans pass through every year, either here as a day trip from places like Atlanta or Charlotte , for weekend getaways, or even longer vacations, all of them using Gatlinburg as basecamp.

There’s plenty of stuff to do in Gatlinburg too, especially along Parkway, its main drag. Lined with attractions such as Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies and the Gatlinburg Space Needle observation tower, as well as many shopping and dining experiences, most of the fun here is accessible on foot (it’s even possible to hike into the national park from town via the Gatlinburg Trail). Other great walking experiences are revealed with a gondola ride to the Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park & Ski Area, including the 700-foot-long Gatlinburg SkyBridge, North America’s longest pedestrian cable bridge.


Street view in Jonesborough, Tennessee

Located in northeastern Tennessee 90 minutes east of Knoxville , Jonesborough has the distinction of being Tennessee's oldest town . Founded in 1779, many of the town’s top attractions are easy to get to on foot from the downtown area, including the Chester Inn State Historic Site and Museum on Main Street, the oldest commercial building in town; the Jonesborough/Washington County History Museum just five minutes walk away; and the Jonesborough Repertory Theatre, literally across the road.

When done with all that downtown walking, check out the International Storytelling Center, home of the annual National Storytelling Festival, and nearby Cherokee National Forest with its mile-after-mile of hiking trails.

Leipers Fork

Charming storefront in Leipers Fork, Tennessee, featuring patriotic decor and vintage charm

Just 30 miles southwest of Nashville , Leipers Fork makes for a great day trip from its much larger neighbor. Although more of a village than a town, Leipers Fork is immensely walkable, with its compact village center packed with character. Top attractions include a collection of art galleries showcasing local and regional artists, antique shops, and boutique stores housed in historic buildings, including the famous Puckett's, a unique mix of general store, restaurant, and music venue.

The village also hosts frequent live music performances, often featuring well-known American musicians. The surrounding countryside is also fun to explore, especially if the nearby Natchez Trace Parkway, a 444-mile-long scenic route connecting Nashville with Natchez, Mississippi , is included.

Lynchburg, Tennessee

Just 75 miles southeast of Nashville, Lynchburg is another great day trip destination to consider as part of a Tennessee road trip. It’s also a place that fans of American whiskey will be familiar with. Home to the world-famous Jack Daniel's Distillery, this must-see attraction offers tours and tastings, making it a must-stop destination on the Tennessee Whiskey Trail.

Other points of interest include the Moore County Old Jail Museum, the Jack Daniel's Lynchburg Hardware & General Store, and various shops and restaurants around the picturesque town square, all within easy walking distance of one another.

Bell Buckle

Garden at the Bell Buckle Banquet Hall and Theatre in Bell Buckle, Tennessee.

The village-like community of Bell Buckle is in many ways the quintessential small Southern town. Immensely walkable, it’s perhaps best known for hosting the quirky RC Cola and Moon Pie Festival, an annual event drawing fans of these iconic treats from across the South and beyond. Although held in June, if you miss it, this charming town is well worth exploring at any time of year for its antique stores, art galleries, and craft shops, most housed in beautifully preserved 19th-century buildings.

Rest those weary feet awhile at The Bell Buckle Cafe, a Tennessee institution that’s famous for its mix of Southern cuisine and live bluegrass music.

St. Francis of Assisi, church on the Little River in Townsend, Tennessee

Townsend’s location in eastern Tennessee makes it another great base from which to explore Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Dubbed the "Peaceful Side of the Smokies" for its small size and laid-back atmosphere, the Townsend Historical Trail is a wonderful route to get around. Following the main road in and out of town for nearly five miles on either side of the highway, convenient underpasses allow trail users to switch between north and south sides to avoid traffic heading into the Smokies . Prefer cycling? The entirety of the route is bike-friendly, too.

Top attractions in Townsend include the Great Smoky Mountains Heritage Center with its displays relating to the area's cultural history, and the Little River Railroad and Lumber Museum. Outdoor activities are also a draw with plenty of hiking, fishing, and tubing excitement along the Little River.

Storefronts along Gay Street in downtown Dandridge

As the second-oldest town in Tennessee, Dandridge deserves a visit. Founded in 1783 and named after Martha Dandridge Washington, George Washington ’s wife and the country’s “first” First Lady , highlights of a stroll through town include seeing its well-preserved 18th-century architecture in its historic district. Spanning a few blocks along Main Street and Gay Street, it’s perfect for walking thanks to its wide, well-maintained sidewalks and crosswalks, making it easy and safe for pedestrians to explore.

Top attractions along the way include the Revolutionary War Graveyard, the 1820 Shepard Inn, and the Jefferson County Courthouse, built in 1845. Bush's Visitor Center, located just outside town, offers a quirky look at the history of this famous Tennessee bean brand.

The Final Word

These seven walkable towns in Tennessee each present visitors with plenty of great excuses to put on those comfy walking shoes. From the historic streets of Jonesborough and Dandridge to the Smokey Mountain retreats of Gatlinburg and Townsend, these awesome communities present visitors with no end of authentic Southern experiences. Whether you're interested in history, outdoor adventures, arts and crafts, or simply soaking in the atmosphere of small-town America, these seven walkable Tennessee towns offer something for everyone.
