Gatlinburg itself (the main strip) is a total tourist trap.
We went there for the mountains, and to get some quality time together in a cabin by ourselves, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday real-world life. Worked out perfectly!
Two or three hours were spent in tourist areas, but that includes dinner at the brewery. And how could I pass up a trip to Cooter's??? Not when I saw the General Lee through the window.
