Anakeesta in Gatlinburg
This Cherokee Indian name means “place of the balsams,” with reference to high ground. Many peaks around Gatlinburg, like Charlie’s Bunion, Chimney Tops, and Mount Kephart, comprise the Anakeesta Formation, a massive rock layer, for instance. Anakeesta, the attraction, offers exciting views once you make it to the summit in one of their gondolas. Over 70 acres of pristine mountain terrain, most of which came from a purchase from the Pi Beta Phi sorority, promise an authentic outdoor experience. Many spring breakers have found that adding Anakeesta to their list of things to do in Gatlinburg has offered them tremendous memories and picture opportunities.
