Chalet Village is located in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains but that doesn’t mean that our guests are limited to only spending time in their cozy cabin rentals. In fact, it is quite the opposite! There is so much to do and see in beautiful Gatlinburg that the possibilities seem endless!

When it comes to the great outdoors, there is nothing more breathtaking than a hike through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Whether you’re an avid hiker or just a beginner, there are many routes with different lengths and sights to pick from. Choose a trail and begin your journey!

Things to do in GatlinburgIf you prefer a view from the top as opposed to a ground trek, then a canopy tour might be for you. CLIMB Works Canopy Tours is a two and a half hour aerial adventure that gives you a bird’s eye view of the incredible Smokies. The tour includes exploring streams and ravines all while being suspended on a zip line in the treetops!

If your Chalet Village vacation includes the kids and a few Dolly Parton fans, then a trip to Dollywood is definitely in order! Rides, attractions and family fun to be had by all are waiting for you at Dollywood! Waterslides, rollercoasters and live entertainment with that cozy, country feel are found around every corner and are not to be missed.

Places to go in GatlinburgIf you still haven’t had your fill of Dolly Parton yet, then make sure you work the Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede Dinner and Show into your vacation plans. This attraction has a variety of show times and is action-packed! The Dixie Stampede is filled with stunts, special effects and a phenomenal four-course spread – and of course it wouldn’t be a Dolly Parton show without phenomenal musical acts and comedy!

Beyond your Chalet Village rental is the Smoky Mountain Opry, where the largest musical variety show can be found! This show has everything from today’s country hits to disco and Motown accompanied by pyrotechnics and other special effects. Put on your cowboy boots or go-go boots, and dance along to performances of songs from The Beatles, Garth Brooks, Stevie Wonder and many more!Down South, we love some good old fashioned food and entertainment… served at the same time! If you feel the same, then the Hatfield and McCoy Dinner Feud is for you. This show has two wild families, one great, granny-cooked meal and a whole lot of country music!Whether you prefer outside excursions, thrill rides, or live entertainment, we have something for everyone. There are endless opportunities for fun and amusement right outside your cabin doors!
