Gatlinburg’s reputation as the Gateway to the Smoky Mountains means plenty of winter activities for out of town visitors. However, just underneath the idyllic mountain town’s surface lies a dark and twisted history that most on the Gatlinburg Haunts tour initially never think exists.
The area houses unprecedented paranormal activity levels, especially on the parkway, which is commonly called the Strip. This hour-long, one-mile tour will uncover the real story behind Gatlinburg’s rough frontier town origins, as well as its complicated and terrifying modern hauntings.
You will see the compelling haunted locations that test the limits of what you might believe. Rest assured, though, the authentic stories you will hear are plucked straight from the history books and confirmed accounts of encounters with the supernatural. Find out the storied history of one of the oldest graveyards in the state and the shadowy ghouls who lurk along its walls. Listen in horror to the tales of murder, suicide, jealousy, revenge, cannibalism, and everything in between. Gatlinburg’s glossy exterior may fool some of the people who visit the town, but we will help you understand the horror on which this town was built.
