We’re All Ready for Outdoor Time…Get Back to the Mountains in Sevierville


This year, get back to feeling like yourself again, spending time with those you love, and exploring the great outdoors. 

Make your great comeback in Sevierville, Tennessee and the Smoky Mountains while enjoying all-time-favorite activities and discovering what’s new. See what’s cooking in downtown, check out Sevierville’s newest stores, and play at fun attractions throughout the Smokies.

Downtown Sevierville is coming to life with a new look, new art, and new businesses.

The recently completed downtown Sevierville streetscape features both widened sidewalks in the historic area and the addition of decorative rails commemorating the Knoxville, Sevierville and Eastern rail line that once chugged through town. Two new murals are the beginning of Sevierville’s push to bring more public art to downtown. The first, Wings of Wander, presents a pair of monarch butterfly wings – orange and black on a white background. Mural artist Pinkie Mistry says she chose to depict monarch wings because of the butterflies’ annual migratory pattern. They travel thousands of miles each year, often visiting the same places on each trip. The second mural, which has yet to be named, depicts a young blonde girl enjoying a burger at Red’s Diner – a once-popular eatery that closed decades ago. The restaurant was a favorite of many locals, including Dolly Parton who enjoyed her first burger there many years ago. The final piece of art slated to become part of downtown Sevierville’s landscape this year is Tracks of Time, a steel sculpture fashioned from original railroad track that was unearthed from Bruce Street in 2020.

The revitalization of downtown Sevierville has attracted new businesses as well. The Central Hotel, a boutique hotel that has made its home in a renovated bank building, features upscale two and three bedroom units that make a perfect place to stay in downtown. Honeybee Coffee Co. anchors the ground floor of the hotel and specializes in house ground coffees ethically sourced from around the world.

Nearby, visitors to downtown Sevierville will find a collection of new restaurants and retail stores within a few blocks. The Appalachian is the latest restaurant to open and features a modern approach to traditional Appalachian dishes flavored by the flames of an open hearth. Other new restaurants include Hickory Cabin BBQ & Grill and Graze Burgers. Ronel Raicsics Design, a bespoke jewelry studio, also recently opened in downtown Sevierville – joining other longtime Sevierville businesses including the award-winning Cherry Pit Quilt Shop and D Garden Floratique.

Throughout Sevierville, new stores add opportunities to discover amazing finds! Explore home décor ideas at Gardenia Cottage Home, find something unique at Green Olde Deal Antique Mall, and pick up outdoor apparel at J Hardy Outfitters. Discover new flavors in the Smokies at recently opened shops including Tennessee Homemade Wines, where the locally made libations have names like “White Knuckle Grape” and “Blueberry Bammer.” Cruze Farms Ice Cream also is scooping up fans of their rich dairy flavors at their new location beside Ogle Bros. General Store.

Those looking for fun in the sun will love Soaky Mountain Waterpark – the area’s newest major attraction. With 50 acres of waterslides, wave pools, and family-friendly activities, this waterpark offers a day (or two) of fun. Check out the first-of-its-kind Avalaunch Watercoaster, ride the rapids in their not-so-lazy river, and let the little ones discover their own thrills on kid-friendly waterslides that are scaled-down versions of the big kid rides.

Fun abounds throughout Sevierville. Visit other recently opened attractions like Sevierville Axe House for an afternoon that’s right on target. Then make a stop at family favorite attractions like Sevier Air Trampoline & Ninja Warrior Park, Rainforest Adventures Discovery Zoo, or the Tennessee Museum of Aviation.

Plan your trip to Sevierville this year and enjoy your favorites, what’s new, and what’s just right for you.
