Gatlinburg Winterfest Kickoff 2018

Today is the kickoff for the next big season in the Smoky Mountains – our longest tourism season in the year – Winterfest 2018! As is tradition in Gatlinburg, we celebrate Winterfest with a Chili Cookoff in downtown Gatlinburg between Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies and Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum. This event is so big that the city of Gatlinburg shuts down a whole section of the downtown parkway just to hold it. The first part of the…

Hiking Waterfalls in the Smokies

With the month of September in decline, you know what’s coming up next – the absolute peak of the Autumn season and the Autumn colors.

Summer Things To Enjoy For Rainy Days

No question about it, this is another rain and storm-filled Summer in the Smokies. We tend to have a 50% chance of our hottest season being enough to channel multiple days of thunder showing up on a weekly forecast and this appears to be the case for this Summer (which not as many locals might complain of since it’d been quite a long time since we had thunder and rain forecasts on the weather stations). So whether or not it…

Coming Soon – Pigeon Forge Snow!

One big claim to fame that we had in the Smokies during, and definitely after, the Smoky Mountain holiday Winterfest was that we had the only place in East Tennessee to enjoy snow sports no matter what the weather was like outside at Ober Gatlinburg, but all that is changing with the advent of a pretty daring new attraction in Pigeon Forge – the aptly named “Pigeon Forge Snow” on Teaster Lane. To put it in a nutshell, Pigeon Forge…
