1. Gatlinburg: Ghosts of the Smokies Haunted Walking Tour
Gatlinburg is known as the Gateway to the Smoky Mountains, however, the city was not always a beautiful and unique tourist mecca. On this 1-hour walking tour, you will uncover the real story behind Gatlinburg’s rough frontier town origins, as well as its complicated and terrifying modern ghostly encounters. Just underneath the idyllic mountain town surface lies a deep and dark history that most tourists never think to explore. Alongside ordinary tourist trappings like the Skylift, mini gold mines, and chain restaurants are compelling haunted locations that push the boundaries of what you may or may not believe. Along the tour discover the storied history of one of the oldest graveyards in the state. Listen in horror to the tales of murder, suicide, jealousy, revenge, and everything in between. Gatlinburg’s glossy exterior may be able to fool some of the people who visit the town, but you will be helped to understand the horror on which this town was built.
