GATLINBURG, TENNESSEE, USA

Hi Everyone. Today's trip is to Gatlinburg, Tennessee. It looks
like a beautiful area.

Gatlinburg is a mountain resort city in Sevier County, Tennessee,
United States. As of the 2010 U.S. Census, Gatlinburg had a population
of 3,944. The city is a popular vacation resort, as it rests on the
border of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which connects
Gatlinburg to Cherokee, North Carolina through the national park.

Gatlinburg is hemmed in on all sides by high ridges. In 1856, a post
office was established in the general store of Radford Gatlin
(17981880), thus giving the town the name "Gatlinburg". Despite the
town bearing his name, Gatlin, who had only arrived in the area around
1854, constantly bickered with his neighbors.

Gatlinburg is an important tourism destination in Tennessee, with many
man-made attractions, and it borders the Great Smoky Mountains
National Park. Ober Gatlinburg is the only ski resort in Tennessee. It
has eight ski trails and three chair lifts, and is accessible via
roads and a gondola from the city strip. The Gatlinburg Trolley, a
privately funded public transit system, caters to area tourists.

During the Christmas season the entire downtown area is decorated with
lights. Visitors also benefit from a free shuttle bus that travels
through the city every half hour.

January is normally the coldest month with average temperatures between
26 and 49 degrees Fahrenheit. July is normally the warmest month with
average temperatures between 61 and 86 degrees F. July tends to be
the rainiest month with an average of 6.1 inches, and a yearly average
of 55 inches of rain. January tends to be the snowiest month with an
average of 2.5 inches and a yearly average of 8.1 inches of snow.

I hope you enjoy this trip to Gatlinburg, Tennessee.
