Visit Us Online First

Over the course of the last decade, social media has become one of the most commonly used forms of communication in the world. On the Peaceful Side of the Smokies, we have created our own Facebook page to help everyone keep up with what’s going on here. By now, most of know that Facebook is how we share family events, photos, videos, and more, but it’s also how we learn about interest groups and businesses.

With this in mind, we decided to create a Facebook page dedicated to all that goes on here on the Peaceful Side of the Smokies. On our page, you will see photos from our photographers chosen to highlight the beauty of the Smokies, season by season, and so much more. The hundreds of photos on our page can show you what to expect when you get here.

Take the time to scroll through the hundreds of photos covering everything including the local inhabitants like black bear, deer, and more. The forests on this side of the mountains are filled with wildlife. Be sure you bring your camera with you. Not only to take your memories home with you, but you can share them with everyone on our Facebook page.

We Post Videos

We love to post videos of the things we love about living here, from the sights and sounds of a babbling creek to the first snows of the year. For those of you who aren’t fortunate enough to live here on the Peaceful Side of the Smokies, these videos are a good way to get a taste of what it’s like to live here. Our videos are readily available and taken for us or sent to us by those who have already come to enjoy the magic of the mountains.


We Support Our Local Businesses

This area of Tennessee is filled with beautiful small towns like Townsend and Maryville as well as major cities like Gatlinburg. We believe that part of being a good neighbor is providing our local businesses with a little promotion. As you scroll through our page, you will find we highlight many of them on our community page along with links to their webpage so you can learn more about the many things to do or see here. You can get dozens of great ideas for your next vacation!
