No matter the season, a visit to Ober Gatlinburg is a must. This combined ski area and amusement park offers something for visitors of all ages. In the winter, head here for skiing, snowboarding, and snow tubing. For the young ones in your pack, there’s even a kids’ discovery play area. When it’s nicer out, you can try out the ski mountain coaster, the alpine slide, a maze, and more. There’s also multiple food options and shops on site.
If it’s just you and your significant other traveling for a romantic escape, head downtown to start your day with breakfast or brunch and then make your way over to the River Walk area. There, you can take a quiet, relaxing walk hand-in-hand along Little Pigeon River surrounded by the colors of beautiful flowers and the sounds of rushing water. Next, take in the scenic views together on the Aerial Tramway – a 2.1 mile ride that gives you one of the best views in the breathtakingly stunning Smokies.
When you are traveling with friends, any destination with live entertainment, music venues, and maybe even breweries and distilleries for some adult beverages is sure to please all. Take in a comedy show at Guy Michaels Gatlinburg Comedy Theater or a magic and mind-reading show at the Impossibilities Magic Show. If live music is more your thing, you have your pick of venues with laid-back vibes to lively bluegrass. When you are ready for those adult libations, the area’s distilleries, wineries, and breweries offer tours and tastings for a memorable group experience.
