We are So Happy You are Considering Visiting The Smokies Great To See You Are Planning Ahead Smart Move, Successful Vacations Begin With A Plan

Why do we blow things up in the sky on the 4th of July? Because it’s fun.

Why did we develop Gatlinburg as a big city full of attractions and events high up in the mountains? Because it’s fun.

Why are we talking about these two things together in the same introduction? Because when you put them both together, it’s the most fun you can have on Independence Day!

The 4th of July fireworks the city provides are just one part of the annual festivities that have made Gatlinburg’s Independence Day celebration something that thousands of visitors have returned for time and time again. The secret to its success is not a secret at all, Gatlinburg’s unique downtown strip is the center of all the entertainment – the “First Independence Day Parade in the Nation” parade, the River Raft Regatta and, yes, even the 4th of July fireworks that explode overhead at 10:00PM. The entire day, from midnight to 10:20PM, is loaded with patriotic awesomeness and Gatlinburg Inn would like to invite you to stay with us during the festivities as your Gatlinburg hotel.

What makes Gatlinburg Inn the perfect spot to call vacation headquarters for the 4th of July is that we’re right in the center of the town where you’re only steps away to enjoy the parade, the River Raft Regatta on River Road behind us, or the fireworks overhead. As you might imagine, traffic on Independence Day in Gatlinburg can be tricky if not flat-out difficult, so having to only walk outside to get your fill of all three is a major advantage.

What are some other advantages of staying with Gatlinburg Inn? Aside from our renovations expecting to be well finished by then, these are just a few of the amenities you can look forward to:

* Coffee makers.
* Hair dryers.
* Irons and ironing boards.
* Complimentary full hot breakfast served daily from 7:00AM-10:00AM.
* complimentary high speed wi-fi internet throughout the hotel.
* Dish Network Television.
* Individual Climate Control.

If you’d like to further enhance your fireworks viewing, consider the Space Needle (hyperlink tohttp://www.gatlinburgspaceneedle.com/) as your vantage point. The 400-and-more foot structure is tall enough to see the fireworks wherever the city may be firing them off from and a camera with plenty of SD space to fill is recommended for it. You may need to contact personnel at the Space Needle to see what arrangements or info you would need to to see the fireworks from there, as you won’t be the only one to consider it as the 4th of July fireworks viewpoint.

The city of Gatlinburg has been THE 4th of July vacation destination for decades, and the proven trifecta of the Parade, Regatta and city skyline fireworks is the reason why. The only thing we look more forward to in the Summer than 4th of July is having you visit us and allowing us to make your vacation dreams come true.

Call and reserve today at 865-436-5133 or use our reservation form. We hope to get to see you!
