Immediately next to Blaine’s Grill & Bar sits the most recognizable structure in Gatlinburg – the Gatlinburg Space Needle. The Space Needle is the tallest structure in the Smokies at 407’. Likewise, its observation deck offers some of the most amazing views of the Great Smoky Mountains that you’ll find anywhere. From their observation deck, you are able to see all of Gatlinburg and the surrounding Smoky Mountains. And if you’re looking for a closer view, there are even FREE viewfinders.
