It’s official! Fall has finally graced us with its colorful presence. Seeing as everyone loves all things fall, we have decided to create a list of our favorite things to do during this spectacular season in the Smokies! There’s something about the crispness in the air, flowy scarves, warm seasonal drinks, and being outdoors that we just can’t get enough of!
Coasting the Smokies: Fall Color from the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster
Get ready for an exhilarating ride in the Smokies! The fall air will flow through every strand of hair while whipping your fashionable fall scarf behind you as you glide at speeds up to 35 miles per hour down the side of a colorful mountain. The fall foliage will whip by you creating a collage of color. It’s so fun; you’re sure to jump back in for another spin!
Auto-Touring: It’s Leaf Season!
Auto-touring through Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the surrounding Smokies is a favorite for sure! Fall is when the town of Gatlinburg really comes to life. You will be surrounded by ambient colors in all of your favorite shades of red, yellow and orange.
Zip lining in the Smoky Mountains is a wonderful way to breathe in the clean mountain air during your stay in Gatlinburg this fall. When you zip line, you will soar from platform to platform through the colorful tree canopies!
Ride the Ober Gatlinburg Tramway
Taking a ride on the Ober Gatlinburg Tramway will get you an up close look at the Smoky Mountains without having to lift a foot! You will ride via cable car to Ober Gatlinburg while taking in panoramic views of the breathtaking Smokies!
Hike to a Waterfall
Go for a fall hike in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. There are several hikes that lead to powerful waterfalls. The waterfalls will gather colorful, fallen leaves in their cascading currents in turn dressing the water and the surround rock structures with the leaves. Don’t forget your camera!
