1. Gatlinburg: Ghosts of the Smokies Haunted Walking Tour
Explore the rocky past of “The Gateway to the Smokies" in the town of Gatlinburg which dazzles visitors with a Skylift, gold panning, and log cabin pancakes. Beneath the family-friendly facade, this former frontier town is steeped in violence, greed, and heartbreak. Meet your guide at the Gatlinburg Space Needle, where a horrific accident claimed a young man’s life in 1991. From there, see seven other historic, haunted locations, including the bone-chilling White Oak Flats Cemetery. Scan the cemetery for the infamous Gatlinburg Witch; uncover the terrifying power of the Cliff Branch River, and find out why no one wants to book Room 11 at the Gatlinburg Inn. Along the way, you’ll delve into the tragic history of westward expansion, slavery, and the Civil War. Book the extended tour to visit four additional stops. If you think you know Gatlinburg, you haven’t heard the spirits’ side of the story. Step into the shadows. They’re waiting.
