Snow-capped mountains and flurries rustling among the trees are only a hint at the beauty that is winter in the mountains. Not only is it strikingly beautiful, but the vibrance of the surrounding cities shine brightly. The hustle and bustle of the holidays fill the air while the mountains are the perfect place to relax. Whether you’re wanting to enjoy the tourist attractions or escape from it all, the Smoky Mountains are the perfect getaway for you this winter.

Attractions to Visit in the Smoky Mountains

If you’re looking to explore the surrounding cities and enjoy the snow, there are tons of places that are perfect for you to visit! You could enjoy an entire day at Anakeesta alone; there’s so much to do! Anakeesta has shops, food, and tons of play. Plus, they have amazing views. Similarly, Ober Gatlinburg has shops, dining, and activities. Get in the spirit enjoying ice skating, ice bumper cars, and snow sports! However, if you’re looking to spend time in nature surrounded by those snow-covered trees, you’ll want to visit the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This is the best place to build a snowman, drink hot chocolate from your thermos, and make snow angels.
