Next, hop on over to the Hard Rock Café for a ROCKIN’ meal! Whether you're in the mood for a quick burger and some sight-seeing or want to hang out a while, the Hard Rock Café provides authentic experiences that rock. But I’ve got to warn: you just never know what you'll see when stepping into the world's only Hard Rock Cafe with a wedding chapel!
As the sun begins to set, head downtown to the Gatlinburg Space Needle, and ride the glass elevator over 400 feet up and step out to a breathtaking 360 degree view of the Great Smoky Mountains.
Observe the lush, green foliage in summer and the foggy valleys during spring.The autumn leaves are vibrant with red, gold, and orange colors. If you brave the cold, you can witness the most beautiful of all, the snow covered Smokies.
The Space Needle is the best place to admire the changing seasons. The observation deck also provides a spectacular view of Gatlinburg’s downtown area from one end to the other. Enjoy Gatlinburg’s lights by night…It’s a must see!
