Pancakes, moonshine, and the Great Smoky Mountains all have one thing in common: Gatlinburg, Tennessee. This bustling center for mountain tourism features loads of locally owned restaurants, exciting attractions, interesting shopping, and sits at the foot of the most-visited national park in the country. So what do you do when you only have 36 hours across a two day weekend?
The small mountain town that now thrives as a bustling center for tourism has lots to offer any visitor. Tourists can enjoy golf, hiking, camping, fishing, shopping, short day trips to Pigeon Forge, Cherokee, and Bryson City, or just hanging out in the hot tub of a resort cabin rental. With so much to do it was difficult to design a 36-hour trip but, hey, sometimes all you have is a two-day weekend. Here is just one of the many possibilities.
