Shopping is only a mile away! From the Five Oaks Mall and the Scrapbook Super Store (the largest in the USA), to the Christmas Store, to Goats on the Roof and the Gatlinburg Arts and Crafts loop, you won’t be lacking for a varied shopping experience.
Dining choices are varied from the chains of Red Lobster and Olive Garden to the local Applewood Farmhouse (featuring apple dishes and fritters) and the Old Mill which has delicious corn chowder with corn fritters. And the newest tourist destination is The Island, a walking plaza with amusements, great shopping and restaurants like Margaritaville and Paula Deens (we can tell you the trick on how to avoid the long wait at Paulas). At the Dixie Stampede – a Dollywood production- you receive a feast plus a show!
The main attraction is the Great Smoky Mountain National Park with its numerous and varied outdoor activities. From short, ranger-led family hikes to long, strenuous day hikes, the park has something for everyone. The Cades Cove area offers horseback riding and a sightseeing loop which is open only to bicycles (which can be rented) on Wednesday and Saturday mornings. Follow the Great Smoky Mountain National Park twitter account for daily updates of activities and up to the second park news.
