Adventure Vacations with Westagate Resorts

Great Times in the Great Smoky Mountains

A perfect Gatlinburg adventure vacation package typically starts with a visit to Great Smoky Mountains National Park! As the official gateway to the Smokies, the beautiful mountain village of Gatlinburg provides a great place to start and end your day in America’s most visited national park.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park encompasses 800 square miles of Tennessee and North Carolina wilderness and offers hundreds of miles of spectacular hiking trails. The Park offers some of the most inspiring natural treasures the Appalachian Mountains have to offer.

Dollywood Theme Park

While the national park should be your first stop, you’ll also want to check out the adventures at Dollywood Theme Par. The family-oriented, 150-acre Dollywood, located in nearby Pigeon Forge, features more than 40 rides and attractions, crafters, live shows and award-winning live entertainment.

Thrilling roller coasters, daring water excursions, family rides, kiddie rides, live shows, delightful restaurants and more – it’s all part of the fun at Dollywood. The park also features five of the South’s largest annual festivals between March and December, each offering a unique blend of family entertainment and adventure. The events include: Dollywood’s Festival of Nations, Barbeque & Bluegrass Festival, Great American Summer Festival, National Southern Gospel & Harvest Celebration, and Dollywood’s Smoky Mountain Christmas.

Ober Mountain

Any time of year, you can find adventure at Ober Mountain. Ober Gatlinburg is Tennessee’s only ski resort, offering eight ski slopes ranging from beginning to advanced. Using a combination of natural and man-made snow, visitors can ski and snowboard. Plus, there’s even an indoor ice-skating rink and other fun adventures at the top of the mountain throughout the year. The aerial tram offers an exciting way to get to the top where you’ll also appreciate the amazing view.
