Have you seen which holiday destination is the most sought after in the US, according to an algorithm created by Trip Advisor? Gatlinburg in TN.

When all is said and done, nobody can take away our memories. Hotels near Gatlinburg or hotels at Gatlinburg TN are filling up quickly for the holidays. Make your reservation today and join our small town for a family celebration that will not soon be forgotten. Read more

Plan Your Christmas Vacation

Hotels in the Smokies are decorated for Christmas. The Village area in downtown Gatlinburg looks like a European village Christmas card. The Christmas Place in Pigeon Forge looks festive all year round, but I think they may have added a few extra lights this time of the year. If you are looking for a place to take the kids this holiday season, Sevier County is your best bet in the South East of the United States. The resorts in Gatlinburg Tennessee will soon be teeming with people, so reservations must be made soon. While you are here, make sure to see a Christmas show at Dixie Stampede or the Smoky Mountain Opry theater. Your vacation will then be complete. Read more
