From shopping, to dining, to entertainment, here are things to keep in mind to make the most of your fall visit to Ober Gatlinburg.

Seeing the Sights

You won’t want to miss the beautiful fall views Ober Gatlinburg has to offer. For the best view of the Smoky Mountains, take a ride on the Ober Gatlinburg Aerial Tramway. The Tramway takes you on a 2.1-mile ride from downtown Gatlinburg to the Amusement Park and Ski Area of Ober Gatlinburg. The attraction costs $13 for adults and $10.50 for children ages 5-11.

If you’re looking for a little more of a thrill, try the Alpine Slide. You’ll take a scenic chairlift ride up the mountain before sliding down through woods and ski trails.
