Gatlinburg, at the heart of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, is an ideal base for a family looking to explore the park’s numerous offerings and those iconic misty mountain ridges. It’s a regional hub for whitewater rafting, horseback riding, ziplining and a long list of other popular outdoor activities; visit in the winter, and you can even fly down the slopes at Ober Gatlinburg, Tennessee’s only ski resort. Beyond the scenery, though, this entertaining mountain town is known for its boutiques, live bluegrass and a surprising number of distilleries.
It’s safe to say that the Smoky Mountains dominated the list, as Bryson City is located just an hour and 20 minutes from Gatlinburg, on the other side of the national park.
