Some Gatlinburg attractions are open all year long, but sometimes, there are special events in the city that are so notable that they take on attraction status. One such event is the Gatlinburg Craftsmen's Fair, which has been celebrating the region's deep, rich arts and crafts heritage since the early decades of the 1900s.
If you're looking for a great way to celebrate the 4th of July in Tennessee, Gatlinburg should be on your short list of destinations to visit. There are several Independence Day activities scheduled in the city this week that promise to add a little boom to your Smoky Mountains vacation.
