Forbes Rates Gatlinburg, TN Among Top Prettiest Towns in America

Have you been contemplating a visit to Gatlinburg but haven’t yet made the time? Well, maybe you will change your mind when you hear all about what Forbes had to say about us! While we have long been touting the beauty of our quaint town, we were thrilled when Forbes placed Gatlinburg on its list of Top 20 prettiest towns in America. Below is an excerpt on what had to say about Gatlinburg:

With its charming, quaint old buildings in the center of town, its dramatic mountain backdrop and the only ski resort in Tennessee, Gatlinburg has become a popular tourist destination for regional fun-seekers. Located on the border of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg benefits from its location as a tourist draw and reinforces it with attractions such as an aerial tramway, an aquarium, whitewater rafting, hiking, and even a haunted house. But let’s not kid ourselves: as pretty and irresistible the town is, the real draw in this part of Tennessee is the nature. “The wildflowers around Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park are absolutely spectacular in the spring as they burst with wildflowers at their peak,” says Zain Habboo, National Geographic’s director of travel.


While we are excited about the wonderful review given to our city by, we are even more excited by the reviews that our customers give us on TripAdvisor. Here are a few of our favorites from the past three months:
