Never Do In Gatlinburg - Drive Everywhere
While it may be tempting to rent a car and drive everywhere, there is a cheaper option: the trolley. The trolley system is extensive and goes just about everywhere you need to go in this town. It’s also very affordable, so it’s a great option for budget-minded travelers. So next time you plan a trip, take advantage of the trolley system! Additionally, driving everywhere is expensive because most, if not all, of the parking lots cost money to park.
