Experience a Gatlinburg Vacation "Foxtrot" Style
During your Tennessee vacation at The Foxtrot, take the time to explore attractions in and around Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Spend a day at Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies or enjoy a musical comedy at the Sweet Fanny Adams Theatre. If you're interested in panoramic views, take a ride up the Space Needle in town or the Sky Lift up Crockett Mountain. Go wine tasting at Sugarland Cellars or the Smoky Mountain Winery, or visit the several museums, including the Guinness World Records Museum and the Salt and Pepper Museum.
Gatlinburg is your gateway to the Smokies. Eight hundred miles of maintained trails, historic log cabins, and old-growth forests await you in the 800-square-mile Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Climb Mount Le Conte, and enjoy spectacular views of the Southern Appalachian Mountains from the park's third-highest mountain. Visit during autumn to experience the magnificent fall colors.
Wander down the eight-mile Great Smoky Arts and Crafts Community loop to meet local artisans in their shops, studios, and galleries. The trail has been designated a Tennessee Heritage Arts & Crafts Trail and lets you connect with Gatlinburg-area weavers, carvers, potters, candy-makers, jewelers, and other artisans.
The only ski/snowboard resort in Tennessee, Ober Gatlinburg provides runs and lifts during the winter. In summer, it offers amusement park rides and activities, including a scenic aerial tramway.
Six miles north of Gatlinburg is the small town of Pigeon Forge, a family-friendly vacation destination.
Pigeon Forge is home to Dollywood, the theme park owned by country music singer Dolly Parton. In addition to thrill rides, Dollywood offers the adjacent Splash Country waterpark, the Dixie Stampede dinner theater chain, and the Southern Gospel Museum and Hall of Fame.
May the glory of the Lord endure forever; may the Lord rejoice in his works. He who looks at the earth, and it trembles, who touches the mountains, and they smoke.
Psalm 104: 31-32
