When it comes to a vacation in Gatlinburg, one of the most important factors to consider is location! After all, you don’t want to waste valuable vacation time with long drives back and forth to attractions, restaurants, shops and other destinations! If you want to make the most of your getaway to the Great Smoky Mountains, enjoy the best location in Gatlinburg with a stay at Olde Gatlinburg Place! Here are the top 5 things that guests love about the location of our Gatlinburg condo rentals:
1. Close to the Gatlinburg Parkway
Our Gatlinburg condo rentals are within walking distance of downtown Gatlinburg, but yet just far enough off the Parkway to avoid the traffic and noise. This means that you can sleep like a baby during your vacation and wake up feeling well rested each morning! This sure beats staying directly on the Parkway where your room could face the street with pedestrian and vehicle noise. After visiting downtown Gatlinburg, simply enjoy the pleasant stroll back to your condo and settle in for a delightful night of sleep!
2. Walking Distance to Ripley’s Aquarium
Olde Gatlinburg offers some of the closest accommodations to Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, where you can explore more than 10,000 exotic sea creatures in 10 themed galleries! Whether you are traveling as a couple or as a family, everyone will be fascinated by exhibits such as the Shark Lagoon, Touch a Ray Bay, Tropical Rainforest and Penguin Playhouse. Since you can just walk to Ripley’s Aquarium, you don’t have to worry about the expense of paying for the city-owned parking garage behind the aquarium!
3. Easy Access to the National Park
We know that many of our guests plan to spend time at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, so you will be happy to know that our Gatlinburg condos are just minutes from the park entrance! Just hop in your car, turn left on the Gatlinburg Parkway and you will be within the park in no time! There are hundreds of scenic hiking trails to explore, as well as opportunities to see wildflowers, waterfalls, historical structures and maybe even some wildlife!
4. Peaceful Ambiance
Guests love the peaceful ambiance of Olde Gatlinburg, which is situated right along the Baskins Creek. Many of 1 and 2 bedroom condo Gatlinburg condo rentals feature a balcony where you can step outside to enjoy the fresh mountain air and the beautiful natural surroundings. The balcony is also a perfect place to enjoy a hot cup of coffee in the morning or to watch the stars shine above the Smokies at night!
5. Endless Restaurant Options
One of the most fun things to do during your Gatlinburg vacation is to try food from local restaurants! From traditional Southern cooking to steaks, seafood and buffets, you will find just about everything imaginable to tempt your taste buds! The best part is that there are tons of restaurants practically right around the corner from Olde Gatlinburg!
