There’s something about fall that sets it apart from the other seasons. It just feels a little slower, a little more relaxed… a little more Gatlinburg. The weather cools off, making the parkway even more walkable and perfect for fall-foliage trips. The changing leaves color our little mountain town with robust reds and vibrant yellows. See miles of nature’s perfection from Newfound Gap or from one of our scenic mountain overlooks. Catch a natural high at the highest point in Tennessee, Clingman’s Dome. Walk downtown Gatlinburg, and see the shops all decked out in autumn colors for the harvest. In Gatlinburg, simply stepping outside and breathing in the fresh mountain air can be a life-affirming, natural relaxant.
