Sevierville, Tenn. Offers Year Round Fun
Wide open spaces and get-back-to-nature activities make the Smoky Mountains a great destination year-round. In Sevierville, each season is packed with something unique to see and do, from fall driving tours to holiday lights and even spring and summer fun in the sun.
Fall Hideaways and Back Road Drives
Take the road less traveled for spectacular fall views mixed with a bit of history in Sevierville, Tennessee. Each fall, visitors to the Great Smoky Mountains enjoy nature’s brilliant display of color. The more popular leaf viewing spots, especially in the national park, tend to get crowded. But Sevierville has created four self-guided driving tours that will help you cruise the back roads for great views, historic sites, and a wonderful fall visit.
Discover all four drives at VisitSevierville.com/fall.
Don’t just plan a daytrip. There’s so much to do in the Smokies, you’ll want to stay a while. Enjoy crisp fall weather during a leisurely mid-week mountain vacation in a glamping tent. Or bring your RV and enjoy quality time in the great outdoors. Sevierville has several upscale RV resorts and campgrounds offering everything from river fishing and kayaking to dog parks and special events exclusively for guests.
Holiday Lights and Shopping
Smoky Mountain Winterfest glows bright in Sevierville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, Tennessee from November 13 through February 22. See millions of lights along the Parkway and enjoy special attractions like Shadrack’s Christmas Wonderland (Nov. 13 – Jan. 3) – a massive 1.5-mile drive through light extravaganza. After enjoying the holiday sparkle, head to Sevierville’s famous stores for gifts that will be loved by everyone on your list. Shop high-end name brands at Tanger Outlets Sevierville and discover one-of-a-kind treasures at stores like Smoky Mountain Knife Works and Robert A. Tino Gallery.
After a busy day filled with holiday fun, cozy up by the fire at a luxurious mountain cabin. Sevierville has hundreds of well-appointed rental cabins offering amenities like full kitchens, hot tubs, and game rooms. Choose a quiet cabin for two or bring the whole family — some cabins sleep up to 40 people!
Spring and Summer Getaways
Whether you’re headed out on Spring Break or taking a relaxing summer vacation, Sevierville offers plenty of splashy fun in the sun. Weather-proof your visit with a stay at Wilderness at the Smokies Waterpark Resort or The Resort at Governor’s Crossing. Both offer indoor and outdoor waterpark experiences the whole family with love. Then explore Sevierville’s newest attraction, Soaky Mountain Waterpark — a 50-acre waterpark with thrill slides, a not-so-lazy river, and plenty of slides and play areas for younger kids.
Dry off and venture out with the family to Rainforest Adventures Discovery Zoo. Their indoor and outdoor exhibits bring you up close with unique animals in an educational setting. Then fly by the Tennessee Museum of Aviation to see rare, airworthy warbird aircraft, including two Republic P-47D Thunderbolts, a Douglas A-1H Skyraider, and more. Those who really want a unique aviation experience can even book a flight in Sky High Air Tour’s 1927 Waco biplane — a truly awesome way to see the area.
Fun family-friendly attractions including Sevier Air Trampoline and Ninja Warrior Park, NASCAR SpeedPark, Adventure Park at Five Oaks, and Dollywood round out the excitement in Sevierville.
