Gatlinburg Sky Lift
Just a few short steps from the Historic Gatlinburg Inn you will find the Gatlinburg Sky Lift, another of Gatlinburg’s iconic landmarks. Following an exhilarating ride to the mountain’s top, enjoy the sights of Gatlinburg through the naked eye or with binoculars located on the overlook platform. Spectacular views of the lush forests and majestic mountains are enjoyed from atop since the area is surrounded on three sides by the natural beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
At night you are treated to a different Smoky Mountain experience. Downtown Gatlinburg’s dazzling lights illuminate this nestled community and deliver memorable views to last a lifetime from this scenic overlook”.
