The City of Gatlinburg

Each new year Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg rolls in with the pristine haze of the Smoky Mountains. Ancient hills and mountaintops extend high into the sky, seemingly scraping across the horizon of delicate clouds and golden sunlight. Harwood canopies stand like paintbrushes, soaking in the colors of the season as bubbling creeks and streams serenade the ambiance of nature trails and wildflowers. Such beauty is found in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, Tennessee, and both cities had similar beginnings.

The Cherokee traversed across the valley to use it as a hunting ground. Their path became known as the “Indian Gap Trail,” and it extended from the Smoky Mountains to North Carolina. Settlers slowly made their way into the area and developed trade relations with the Cherokee, residing along Pigeon Forge - named after the Little Pigeon River and a forge built in 1817 - years before the American Revolutionary War. Following the establishment of the first business, Pigeon Forge found its identity shifting from farming to that of tourism as myriads of visitors came to see the Great Smoky Mountains. This is still so today, as millions of people vacation in Pigeon Forge for not only its natural bliss, but for its plethora of entertainment venues.

In like fashion, Gatlinburg was first inhabited by the Cherokee, who used the Indian Gap Trail here as well. American settler William Ogle ventured into the area from South Carolina in the early 19th century, working alongside the Cherokee to construct his own cabin. While Ogle would unfortunately pass away before its completion, his wife and family followed in his stead; their cabin still stands today in Gatlinburg. In 1856, local Radford Gatlin established a post office, and the town was thusly named “Gatlinburg.” An explosive lumber industry would make way for tourism though it nearly destroyed the mountains. They were saved by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and officially dedicated it a national park in 1940. Since then, hikers have enjoyed the Appalachian Trail, drivers have indulged in the gorgeous scenery of flowing rivers and streams, and visitors have meandered their way through many different walking paths. Wildlife abounds, including black bear, wolves, elk, fox, deer, and many other animals. Today, the park, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg are an enduring testament to the mountain people who settled in that area, as well as the Cherokee culture.

Aside from a rich history, Gatlinburg, the gateway to the Smokies, features attractions like Ripley's Aquarium, Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum, Ober Gatlinburg ski area, fantastic restaurants, and quaint stores. It is an ideal vacation area for families, couples, and friends because the fun you will have while visiting is worth sharing. Make sure to bring your camera to capture the gorgeous scenery and your fantastic vacation in the Smoky Mountains.

Do & See in Gatlinburg

Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg are perfect destinations for nature lovers and entertainment seekers. Explore the breathless wonders of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park on foot or from the air, or sit in laughter and awe as magical shows challenge your perception of reality. Pigeon Forge has one of the best theme parks in the nation, Dollywood, and both cities feature a bevy of dinner shows for families. Rain or shine, there is plenty to do!
Great Smoky Mountains National Park
The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the most visited national park in the country - and with good reason. The forest ridges run along the border between Tennessee and North Carolina, providing a home to myriads of animals and plants. As a wildflower preserve, the park has over 1,500 flowering plants that can be found all year, more than any other national park in North America. An array of activities may be had: camping, fishing, hiking, picnicking, bicycling, horseback riding, and auto touring.
Cades Cove
Located inside the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is one of the most visited sites in the park and country: Cades Cove. The small site sits in the middle of a wide valley floor and is a center for wildlife to come graze and play. Look for black bears in the trees and deer, elk and other wildlife in the fields. Several original mountain homes, as well as a grist mill, churches, and barns dating back to the 1700s are all located along the drive through Cades Cove. The area is rich in history and served as a Cherokee hunting ground for generations before being partially settled by mountaineers. Take a picnic lunch with you and enjoy it by the stream that still operates the mill every day.
Dollywood
Dollywood is Pigeon Forge’s grand theme park - and one of the nation's most visited - imagined and created by legendaries Dolly Parton and the Herschend family. Along the foothills of the Smokies, the 150-acre park has over 40 rides and attractions, all of which having given Dollywood worldwide recognition. There is live entertainment featuring music, dancers, and demonstrations from craftsmen. Rides include the likes of Wild Eagle and Mystery Mine. Make sure to visit Dollywood Splash Country, too!
Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies
Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies houses 10,000 sea creatures spanning over 350 species. Among the attractions in store are the tropical rainforest, shark lagoon, gallery of the seas, penguin playhouse, coral reef, touch-a-ray bay, ocean realm, stingray bay, systems control, and the discovery center. Underwater tunnels give visitors the feeling of truly being in the water with the fascinating creatures, and dive and feeding shows are equally as interactive.
