Maybe you’re thinking about planning a Gatlinburg family reunion or maybe you just want to get together with friends and family. Either way, here’s why you should think about making your next vacation to Gatlinburg a January getaway:

Views of the Great Smoky Mountains

Believe it or not, many guests think that the winter months are cold, foggy and dark compared to the other seasons. While the weather may be colder, this doesn’t mean the views are any less spectacular.

After the leaves fall off of the trees in November, just before the holiday season, visitors stop focusing on the beauty of the national park and begin to look at the holiday lights along the Parkway in Gatlinburg. When, in fact, if you don’t visit in the wintertime, you’re missing out on some of the best views of the mountains.

Many of the trees have lost their colorful leaves, but that just opens up the trees so you can see more of the snowy landscape. Not all of the trees will lose their color, though. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is filled with evergreens trees, too, so you will see some greenery even in the winter!
