New Years and January 2012

The holidays will be over soon, but the activity in the Smokies never stops! January already promises plenty for all visitors to enjoy!

The New Years Eve party in downtown Gatlinburg is the perfect simultaneous way for both the end of the year and the start of the new one to go out and in with a BANG. A 15-minute long bang actually as Gatlinburg traditionally celebrates with the ball drop and countdown to a HUGE fireworks display from the Space Needle. Can you think of a better way to celebrate 2011 and 2012? Come out and join the party on New Years Eve in Gatlinburg!

Pigeon Forge is where you want to go after that as it hosts Wilderness Wildlife Week, a huge event from January 7th to the 14th where everything you wanted to know about nature in the Smokies comes alive. Lectures, guest speakers, demonstrations, live animals, even guided walks in the mountains - It's a perfect event for everyone to enjoy and a great family outing.

Don't forget Gatlinburg is home to a number of year-round attractions like Ripley's Aquarium, Ober Gatlinburg, which is currently in its Winter Sports season, Fort Fun and dozens of other attractions while Pigeon Forge is home to Wonderworks, Zorb and the Titanic Museum.

There's never a dull or bad time to come to the Smokies and enjoy the tranquility of the mountains, so come on out to Cove Mountain and enjoy another section of Winterfest starting up. See what we have to offer at
