A resort town of barely 4,000 permanent residents in Tennessee's Great Smoky Mountains, this together with nearby Pigeon Forge, Sevierville, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is one of the eastern USA's top tourism nexuses, a mix of nature, sport, and honky tonk, all with a country-western kind of flavour. And nighttime brings as much fun as the daylight hours.
Visit the shops, attractions, restaurants and watering holes on the downtown strip for a lively, stimulating evening out.
