Is it on road or off?

by peterd1331

I was wondering if this trail is paved or not? Also, is it hilly and what sorts of things can you see?

sorry, disregard this. I thought the ask a question button was for the specific topic.

You will have no problem finding Gatlinburg. One you get to Knoxville there are sighns everywhere pointing twords it. All of the roads are paved and thter is TONS of traffic. I mean really tons.The roads are more twisty than hilly. You will be able to see and do many things such as riplies believe it or not, ,many childrens shows ext.. Lots of gift shops and the mountains are beautiful. THe streats are sholder to sholder at night. Its a real neat place! Sevierville is also neat. If you plan to go out in the evening I suggest you stay in Gatlinburg, not Sevierville because the traffic will several hours to get out of Gatlingurg at night

Travel Tips for Gatlinburg

Numbered Traffic Lights

by Stephen-KarenConn

The main street through Gatlinburg is Parkway, and it has ten traffic lights numbered 1 - 10, going north to south. Traffic light # 10 is nearest the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and Traffic LIght # 1 is nearest Pigeon Forge. When giving directions in Gatlinburg virtually everyone uses the traffic light system. In other words, a business may be advertised as being at traffic light # 3, or between traffic lights # 8 and # 9.

Major side streets in Gatlinburg include River Road, Parkway East, and Airport Road (Also called Historic Nature Trail). These streets do not use the numbered light system. Also, don't look for an airport anywhere near Airport Road. The street got it's name because many years ago light aircraft sometimes used this road as a landing strip. The nearest small airport now is on the east side of Sevierville, about 14 miles away.

It is a real ghostwon located six miles from Gatlinburg in the Smokey's. The people were forced out of the town in the 1980's and is really neet to see. If you are there in June you can see Fireflies in unison and it is absolutely stunning.

If you like trout you'll like this place.

by BurrGump about Smoky Mountain Trout House

Great Trout at a great price. If you’re looking for a nice variety of trout dishes try The Smoky Mountain Trout House. Not a very big place but the food and trout are great. On my first visit I had The Broiled Mountain Trout broiled with pure butter-butterfly style, a light delight. On my second visit I had the Smoked Mountain Trout. Hickory smoked and served with a dish of sautéed mushrooms and onions. A "must" before you leave Gatlinburg.
Both visits were very good and went well with sweet iced tea.

On the Gatlinburg Strip; nice waiter & great food

by Darkeyedgirl about The Brass Lantern

We wandered in here for dinner on our first night in town. We got seated right away, our waiter was REALLY friendly and accomodating, and the food was awesome! I wanted a martini, and he really worked to get me a perfect Cosmo.

They had a nifty mix of lasagne, steaks, fishes, and veggies. Side items were plentiful, too. We didn't do dessert here (went next door to Aunt Mahalia's instead!) but dang the dessert menu looked SPLENDID.

The kids menu was nice, the atmosphere of the restaurant was casual yet upscale (for Gatlinburg). The location is perfect; not too far down on the Strip, and you can walk off that nice big dinner afterwards on your way back to your hotel.

Price was good, too. "New" Southwestern Fried Catfish: Catfish filet dusted in cornmeal and lightly deep fried. Served over spicy Cole slaw and topped with chipotle honey sauce.

That was what I got! The spicy Cole Slaw was SPICY & that honey sauce is made on-premises, and oh-so good. I'll never view a catfish the same way again.

The Cosmo was pretty tasty, too. =-)

Kid's Menu:
Choice of Vegetable and any one entree below...
Hot Dog
Grilled Cheese
Chicken Strips
Add a bowl of our tasty Ice Cream (Vanilla or Chocolate).

---- so the kids won't be picky; they have a nice selection and it's plentiful for hungry little bellies. Or hungry big bellies.

I think my fiance got the ribs?

The Ephraim Bales Place

by monica71

In my opinion this is the best place to stop by and imagine how mountain life was at the time. The owners, Ephraim and Minerva Bales, lived here in the tiny house with their 9 children.

I was really surprised to learn that the original cabin had only one tiny window (in order to preserve heat inside the cabin). The larger window was added later on.

On their land you will see the house, a hog pen, a barn and a corn crib (all of them pretty well preserved).

The family owned 72 acres of land out of which they farmed only 30 acres, the rest of 42 acres remained forest. They lived here from 1890 to 1930.

It is worth to stop by, explore the place and take few pictures.
