Gatlinburg Vacations In The Fall

Fall is just around the corner so that means it’s time to start planning your Gatlinburg Vacations so you don’t miss the beautiful changing colors in the mountains around the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Obviously the Smoky Mountains, Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge area will all change later in the fall than Vermont and Maine so you will want to plan accordingly.

Look for the height of the fall colors on the trees to be around late October to early November depending on several factors which include previous rainfall, current dryness and a nice cold snap, but not a freezing one, before the height of the color season. There are many places around Gatlinburg where you can see the beautiful leaves, but usually in the higher elevations will give you the best chance of seeing the most color.

Fall is a great time of the year to take a Gatlinburg Vacation, not only because of the beautiful colors, but because of additional events taking place throughout the area for the several months leading up to winter. Some of those events include the Smoky Mountain Harvest Festival running from September 24th through October 31st, art festivals, decorations in Downtown Gatlinburg and lots of other activities.

Of course the best way to enjoy your fall vacation to the Smokies is to stay in a Gatlinburg cabin rental so you can be right in the middle of the changing colors and all you have to do is walk out onto your balcony to experience fall in all of its beauty. There are plenty of cabins around the site so have a look to find a cabin that fits your needs. We feature many reviews of cabins ranging in size from 1 bedroom 1 bath units for a couple, maybe on your honeymoon, up to very large cabins with 5,6, 7 or more bedrooms for large parties, family reunions or church groups.

We hope plan on coming to the Smokies this fall for a Gatlinburg vacation that you will remember for a lifetime.
