    • Weather in Gatlinburg

      by Lukadosa Online Now Sep 29, 2014 at 8:28 AM

      My family and I are planning a visit to Gatlinburg, Tennessee. What kind of weather should we expect at the end of December 2014 and beginning of January 2015? Should we expect a white Christmas with snow right outside the door or do we have to look/travel higher to the mountains to find some snow? We are looking forward to find snow, (specially the kids); they are very excited thinking they should be able to play in the snow -as you probably already notice: snow is a must in the trip-. How cold should it be in town? What kind of clothing should we wear? We live in Costa Rica (a tropical country) so we want to prepare in advance the right clothing for low temps.
      Any advice on clothing, weather or snow related matters will be very welcome.
      Thanks Virtual Tourist Fellows

    • Must-see & Must-do

      by Lukadosa Online Now Sep 24, 2014 at 9:14 AM

      Hi, everyone!
      Me and my family are going on a vacation trip to Gatlinburg, Tennessee for a couple of weeks by the end of December 2014 and the beginning of January 2015. Our total party is 11 family members with an age range from 3 to 70.
      I would appreciate any advise on must-see attractions and places & must-do things. As I mentioned we're going on a vacation trip so our schedule is free but we certainly want to get the most out of our stay, at this moment we only have planned to visit a Ski Resort . Also any idea on how/where to spend New Year´s Eve will be welcome.
      Thanks a lot.

      Hello I am thinking of driving from Miami to Gatlinburg the last week of the year. The route we will be taking is I95 to I26 to I40. I have never driven on mountains before and am a bit scared of the roads, snow etc. Can anyone give me an idea of what to expect in the way of altitudes and curvy roads? I would appreciate it.

      Gatlinburg Cabin Contract Concern:

      by mariaeliz61 Online Now Sep 11, 2013 at 4:28 AM

      After many many views, reading 100's of comments we think we have found the cabin that would fill both couples expectations for a 4 day Christmas holiday. We found it on the HomeAway.com website. We spoke with the owners and were shocked that they are expecting the full amount (over $1400.00) paid in FULL by 8 October 2012 for a 22-26 December stay.
      I have traveled all over the world, stayed in more 5 & 4 Star resorts than I can count and never and I mean never have I come across a contract that requires FULL payment, site unseen and virtually protects them from refunding us any monies if anything goes wrong from water pressure, shut off, hot tub not working/heating, etc.
      Is this something "local" to Gatlinburg? I am concerned about signing such a contract and paying in FULL. I get that a security deposit and one nights stay, but the total seems way out of line with no reassurance in return.
      Thank you in advance for your time, expert advice and any suggestions! ~M

      Hello, I've been reading about hiking and being aware of your food with the bears. If we pack a picnic when we go out to Cade's Cove and pack it in an ice chest (we will be in a Jeep with top off), is the ice chest good enough to keep the food sealed or should we use something else? Don't want to attract the bears to us or to our Jeep when we are hiking!! Thanks in advance!!

      I am a single male and am hoping to find a rough hewn rustic primitive 1 or 2 room type of cabin at affordable rate in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon forge area. I don't want a newer built home but an older cabin or shack type dwelling. Anyone know of any hidden gems. I'm there for the nature, not amenities.

      Hi every1

      We are planing a trip to on this winter around middle December.

      My husband bigest interest is to see snow as he has been living on tropic all his life .

      By what I see Tennessee ( Gatlinburg ) doesnt get lots of snow on the winter season unless you are in higher elevations .
      I found a cabin ( bear cub) which is located on 2700 ft ( by google earth ) .
      Do you think we will have plenty snow at that elevation ?

      Do you know any higher elevation cabin or any advise .... cause we are going for just 4 days we had not time to spear for a weather to change and get a snow storm....

      Please any advise will be appreciate
