Images and editorial supplied by Sevierville Convention & Visitors Bureau

Sevierville, Tennessee, is quickly gaining attention from travelers who want a fun Smoky Mountain vacation with a side-helping of hometown appeal. Ranked a best small town to visit in 2015 by Smithsonian Magazine and a top honeymoon spot by Trip Advisor reviewers in 2017, this town is garnering accolades for all the right reasons. Here are the top eight reasons you should add Sevierville to your list of places to visit this year.

The Great Smoky Mountains

Located in the foothills of these ancient, majestic mountains, Sevierville’s views are incredible. Venture a few miles up the road (the park entrance is less than 13 miles away) to explore Great Smoky Mountains National Park, America’s most visited national park. While there, enjoy hiking, horseback riding, visiting historic farmsteads and more. Did you know: Great Smoky Mountains is one of the few national parks that are absolutely free to enjoy.

Dolly Parton

World-wide entertainment icon Dolly Parton hails from Sevierville, Tennessee and her hometown has honored her with a bronze statue in the middle of the historic downtown district. Stop for a photo-op with the bronze beauty before making the quick trip to her nearby Dollywood theme park.

Dining in Sevierville

Southern cooking is good. Really good. Check out the house specialties at places like Applewood Farmhouse Restaurant – a perennial visitor favorite – where every meal begins with a hearty helping of Applewood Fritters, apple butter and Applewood Julep. Get the fried chicken or the chicken pot pie (which, incidentally, is the size of a whole pie) and finish your meal with apple cobbler a la mode.

Shopping in Sevierville

Sevierville has long been called the Shopping Capital of the Smokies, and for good reason. Not only will you find luxury items at discounted prices at places like Tanger Outlets Sevierville (which has more than 100 high-end outlet stores), you’ll also find weird, wild and beautiful things at our boutiques, galleries and antique stores.

Museums in Sevierville

This small town has big history on display. Explore the Tennessee Museum of Aviation, Tennessee’s official repository and archive for aviation history, and see warbird aircraft from WWII through Vietnam on display. The rarest aircrafts in their collection are two airworthy P-47 Thunderbolts, given the names “Wicked Wabbit” and “Hun Hunter” during the second world war. There are fewer than twelve airworthy P-47 Thunderbolts remaining worldwide. Also, visit Floyd Garrett’s Muscle Car Museum, The Relic Room at Smoky Mountain Knife Works, and the Sevier County Heritage Museum.

Outdoor Adventure in Sevierville

Building confidence, building a team, building a memory. There’s no better way to have fun together than by immersing yourselves in a great outdoor adventure. When you visit Sevierville, make plans to zip line 400 feet above the forest floor, ride an ATV to Bluff Mountain’s summit and see all the way to Kentucky, brave class IV rapids on the Pigeon River, and hike to the top of Mt. LeConte to eat lunch above the clouds.

Sevierville Sports

The all-American pastime is full-time fun in Sevierville. Catch a game with Sevierville’s own Tennessee Smokies Baseball team, double-A affiliates of the Chicago Cubs, and see up-and-coming players right here in the Smoky Mountains. The Tennessee Smokies play regular home game stretches from April through August each year.

Bring along your golf clubs and enjoy two championship courses at the Sevierville Golf Club. Play the Highlands course through rolling foothills and set a tee-time for the River course, which winds along and across the west prong of the Little Pigeon River. Both are picturesque and offer challenging play.

Staying in Sevierville

Cozy cabins are a favorite with visitors to Sevierville. More like luxury homes than rustic shacks, these mountain mansions provide comfort and coziness at affordable rates. Looking for something splashier? Try one of Sevierville’s two water park resorts. Wilderness at the Smokies Water Park Resort offers one indoor and two outdoor water parks, mini golf, an indoor dry playground, restaurants and more on site and is a favorite of families. The Resort at Governor’s Crossing also offers an indoor water park and is only a few minutes from Dollywood. Along the famed Parkway visitors will also find newly renovated hotels, condos and campgrounds—perfect for your Smoky Mountain vacation.

Townsend: The Peaceful Side of the Smokies

A quiet mountain community, Townsend is known as the “Peaceful Side of the Smokies,” which marks a change of pace from the rest of the Smoky Mountain region. Just miles away from the bustling towns of Sevierville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, Townsend is the quintessential Appalachian town, full of rich heritage and surrounded by breathtaking nature.

Outdoor Attractions and Activities in Townsend

Townsend lies in the beautiful Tuckaleechee Cove, a mountain valley at the border of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. In fact, Townsend is one of just three main gateways to the National Park. With such convenient access to the Smoky Mountains, Townsend is popular for outdoor enthusiasts. From biking and hiking to golfing and fishing, there is an endless number of ways to enjoy the outdoors around Townsend.

The Little River descends from the mountains into the heart of the town, making it a natural gathering place for recreation. The clean and clear mountain waters are used often for swimming, fishing, kayaking and tubing. One such popular spot for water fun is known as “The Townsend Y.” This swimming hole is located where the Little River and the middle prong of Little River join. It’s easy to access and widely known as a fantastic spot for families to swim, sunbathe or enjoy a picnic along the sloping hills. While the surrounding nature looks so pristine and untouched, this beautiful valley has actually been inhabited for thousands of years. In fact, evidence of inhabitants as early as 10,000 years ago was unearthed at a recent archaeological dig.

Historical Attractions in Townsend

Adding to that long history is a rich Appalachian heritage and the thriving logging industry of the past. Visit the Great Smoky Mountain Heritage Center to learn about and celebrate the culture and history of the Smokies in the 1800s. The museum displays artifacts and highlights the major periods in the region’s history, from 3000 B.C. to 1930. Discover artifacts related to hunting, pottery, foodways, ceremony, games, medicine and trade of the Native Americans that once inhabited the lands. Learn about the pioneer life by stepping back in time to view some of their vehicles and tour the buildings where they worked and lived.

At one point in time, the majority of folks in the Tennessee Smokies were employed by the Little River Railroad and Lumber Company, one of the largest commercial lumber operations in the Smokies. From 1901 to 1939 the company built more than 150 miles of railroads in the Smoky Mountains and sawed more than 560 million board feet of timber. Of course, this land is now known as the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, but visitors can still travel back in time by visiting The Little River Railroad and Lumber Company Museum, dedicated to preserving the heritage of this illustrious company. The museum, located in Townsend, collects and preserves the history of the companies and people in this region.

Even more history lies underneath the surface at Tuckaleechee Caverns, a mile-long cave system that’s known as the “greatest site under the Smokies.” Estimated to be between 20 and 30 million years old, the caverns tell the story of how the Cherokee Indians used this area as a hiding place before they were discovered in the mid-1800s. The caverns soon became a place where folks would go to cool off as they carried out their chores and even took their summer naps.

An excellent way to combine recreation and history is to take a ride on the historic bike trail, an eight-mile route right through Townsend. Grab a brochure at the Townsend Visitors Center and then follow the markers—they point out historic sites and explain important historic periods.

Townsend is also adjacent to Cades Cove, a once-thriving mountain community built in the 1800s. Today, an 11-mile driving loop takes visitors back in time as they explore a working gristmill and other historical buildings and churches.

Shopping and Dining in Townsend

Aside from its gorgeous nature, Townsend is the perfect mountain town to spend a peaceful day. Browse the town’s charming shops, art galleries and antique stores, where you’ll find one-of-a-kind items, mountain-style crafts, original art and sweet Southern hospitality accompanied by a smile. When you need a little energy, you’ll find a plethora of quaint cafes and eateries dotting the streets of Townsend. Whether you’re in the mood for something tastefully healthy, purely Southern or eclectically inspired, you’re sure to find a restaurant to fit your style and lift your spirits.

No matter where you want to explore during your vacation, the quaint town of Townsend is the perfect place to stay. Choose from many types of accommodations—cabins, hotels and bed and breakfasts abound across the landscape, as do campgrounds.

Whether you come for the bounteous nature, the rich history or the charming aspects of this quiet mountain town, Townsend will leave an impression on you that’s as deep as the coves and as high as the mountains. Come see what’s waiting for you in this valley of paradise.

Thrills for Adrenaline Seekers

There are those who are born with a natural sense of adventure, and it’s these people who look to the Smokies as a place to go wild and really let the adrenaline pump through their veins. One activity in particular that has gained immense popularity among thrill seekers is zip lining. CLIMB Works Canopy, in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, gives their guests a bird’s eye view of what makes the Smokies so unique. After a four-wheel journey to the top of the mountain, guests take that first step onto the beautifully constructed tour, and their feet won’t touch the ground—for the next two-and-a-half hours! Daredevils will have a chance to explore as they zip over ravines, streams, trees, wildlife and gorgeous views of the National Park.

Adventure Park Zip Lines in Sevierville offer nine lines ranging from 450–2,500 feet allowing guests to travel through the air at up to 50 miles per hour! Imagine being suspended in the air on a cable as gravity does the work and you swoop through the air among the treetops.

Through Foxfire’s Bear Crawler ATV Tours, guests can embark on a rugged and exciting safari tour through the wilderness inside an open-air vehicle. Explore a Civil War Iron Mine, Lost Mine Falls and a 19th-century graveyard on this daring trip.

Fly High Inside

Another great activity for those who are ready to conquer their fear of heights can be found at Flyaway Indoor Skydiving.

Tennessee Smoky Mountains Adventures on the Water

If you’re in the mood for a little splash (or a head-to-toe soak), try the daring sport of white water rafting, one of the most thrilling workouts on the water! Featuring miles of heart-stopping rapids and family-friendly waters, it’s easy to see why the Pigeon River is one of the most popular whitewater rivers around. The Upper Pigeon features miles of class III and IV rapids that are perfect for an extreme rush. The Lower Pigeon, with gentle class I and II rapids, is great for ages 3 and up. Both the Upper and Lower sections are accompanied by gorgeous, unforgettable scenery.

Crush some waves at Big Creek Expeditions in beautiful Hartford. Big Creek offers a quest on the Upper and Lower rivers and also an Adventure Package where guests can combine the best of both worlds for a full day of fun. Start with a whitewater expedition on the Upper Section, and finish with a relaxing float down the Lower Section. Enjoy a memorable riverside picnic in between the two excursions.

Also in Hartford, Outdoor Adventure Rafting offers riders the chance to experience a guided two-hour whitewater tour on the Upper Section that’s perfect for beginners or intermediate paddlers or a Lower Section tour for those who aren’t quite ready for the big rapids. Many groups raft both sections, but it’s also fine to split your group to allow each person to raft on the section they’re most comfortable with. After your trip (where you are guaranteed to be drenched) you’ll have the opportunity to change into dry clothes at Outdoor Adventure Rafting’s changing rooms, located right on the river!

With so many activities offered to visitors, the Tennessee Smoky Mountains may just be your new favorite spot to visit! All the attractions and adrenaline-pumping excitement will keep you flying high and enjoying your stay in this lush, natural environment.

Golfing near the Tennessee Smoky Mountains

Enjoy a Variety of Golf Experiences near the Tennessee Smoky Mountains

Golf boasts a rich history that stems from the bounteous grasses of 15th century Scotland. However, it’s not necessary to travel to faraway lands to experience this game that has frustrated and challenged countless players for centuries. From the lush green landscapes to the wide-open scenes of nature, Tennessee shares  many of the same characteristics as the originating lands of Scotland, providing unique golf experiences for both avid and casual golfers.

Golfing on the Smokies’ Mountain Courses

Courses in the Smoky Mountain area have taken advantage of the scenic beauty and the natural surroundings to create an experience that will be remembered as much for the scenery as for the challenge. First is the challenge of playing on courses designed by greats like Arthur Hills, Gary Player and D.J. DeVictor. Then there is the challenge of concentrating on the game while surrounded by the splendor and majesty of the Great Smoky Mountains.

For those not accustomed to it, mountain golf presents its own unique challenges and thrills. “Reading the green,” for example, can be particularly difficult when the slope of the putting surface is severe, yet disguised by a mountainous backdrop. Even addressing the ball and obtaining the proper stance can be challenging with the undulating  terrain.  On many holes, golfers, particularly those with errant drives, will not find another level lie after they leave the tee box until they reach the next hole. Adjusting to the slope presents an ever changing opportunity to test yourself and your game as no two shots are ever quite the same.

In addition to the sloping fairways, the topography often allows for extreme elevation changes that make proper club selection a continuous challenge.  The change in altitude on many mountain courses, many times from tee to green, can give golfers the thrill of a lifetime with drives that travel 300 yards and more to the fairway below. Even the crisp mountain air seems to allow the ball to travel farther and roll longer.

Experience Sevierville Golf Club

The golf business is booming in the Smokies, with a wide range of golfing experiences, course designs and unique challenges. The Sevierville Golf Club offers guests the quality services, amenities and presentation that you’d expect to find in a private club, although they’re open to the public on a daily fee basis. With its clubhouse situated on the banks of the Little Pigeon River and immediately adjacent to the Wilderness Resort, the Sevierville Golf Club provides the convenience and challenge you are looking for while on vacation.

Their two championship courses, The Highlands course and The River course, offer two distinct sets of challenges as well as magnificent landscapes. Golfers on The Highlands course will enjoy lush, rolling hills and freshwater mountain ponds while enjoying the resort-style course which plays to a Par 70. For even more challenge, the championship layout of  the River course takes golfers along the Little Pigeon River, including three holes that are situated on an island in the river. Then golfers head up into the rolling foothills for the back nine where elevation changes will force you to stay focused despite the beauty of the spectacular views.

Sevierville Golf Club Amenities

To get yourself ready for these challenges, take advantage of the club’s extensive driving range with grass tees, their expansive putting green and their chipping area to help fine tune your game. 

After a long day on the course, unwind at the clubhouse with a cold beverage and a tasty meal. Be sure to ask about the delicious lunch specials that change daily.

Aside from being a great place to tee off on vacation, The Sevierville Golf Club hosts team building and meeting events as well as memorable wedding ceremonies and receptions. They also hold tournaments throughout the year, so visit seviervillegolfclub.com to book your next event.

With courses that vary to suit everyone from beginner to professional, there is a unique experience waiting for every golfer here in the Smokies. With beautiful weather and spectacular mountain scenery, Tennessee’s golf is an experience all visitors will enjoy and continue to come back for year after year.
