If you’re planning on taking an autumnal vacation this year, Gatlinburg is the perfect destination! Tucked away in the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee, this city is surrounded by colorful fall foliage in the autumn months. There are so many festive activities to do in the fall and a ton of beautiful Gatlinburg resorts that will put you right in the center of it all!
Fall Activities in Gatlinburg
Gatlinburg has a bunch of ways to get incredible aerial mountain views, especially in the fall. While staying at a Gatlinburg resort, you have to experience the magical autumnal scenery. Ober Gatlinburg Aerial Tramway will take you on a scenic ride up the Smoky mountaintops. In the fall, Ober Gatlinburg celebrates Oktoberfest with a celebration of German food and culture. For another incredible view, head to Anakeesta park to visit AnaVista, Tower which is the highest point in downtown Gatlinburg. At Anakeesta, you’ll also be able to race down the mountainside on their dueling ziplines or on the Rail Runner mountain coaster. For a more relaxing time, enjoy a meal or drink with a view at Cliff Top restaurant.
If you’re looking for some Halloween thrills, Ripley’s Haunted Adventure is the perfect spot. Although this haunted attraction is open year-round, it’s a great way to get in the spooky spirit in October. Keep in mind that this is a haunted house, so it might be a bit too scary for the little ones.
For a more family-friendly festive celebration at a Gatlinburg resort, head 30 minutes away to Dollywood’s Harvest Festival. Dollywood is one of the top destinations in the Smoky Mountains and this exciting theme park transforms in the fall. You’ll find incredible decorations all over the park and at night the displays glow in fall colors. Of course, you can’t visit Dollywood without hearing some music and the festival offers more than 800 concerts!
