Have you ever seen fall foliage in Gatlinburg Tennessee?

It is no secret that fall produces some of the most vibrant red, gold and orange hues. Combine the colors of the changing leaves with purples and yellows of fall mums and you have before you the a glorious image.

If you answered no to the question above, then you’re really missing out. One of my absolute favorite places to go see gorgeous fall foliage is Gatlinburg, Tennessee. The colors are beyond spectacular and with mountains surrounding you, there is an abundance of view to be seen.

Many folks a worried about the current government shutdown hampering their chances to see these beautiful colors in the mountains because the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, itself,  is shut down.

But that doesn’t mean you have to miss out when taking a fall Smoky Mountain vacation. Several scenic roads including the “Spur” between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg and Newfound Gap Road (441) leading to the Tennessee/North Carolina overlook are still open, providing you with ample views of the beautiful fall foliage.
