Gatlinburg has been named the top mountain town in the South in a new Southern Living ranking.

Southern Living Magazine ranked the best mountain towns across Appalachia based on reader feedback, and Gatlinburg was a huge reader favorite. 

"Over the past couple of years, everybody's favorite mountain town has seen the opening of its spectacular Skybridge, Blake Shelton’s Ole Red restaurant, the Tennessee Cider Company, locally owned Gatlinburg Brewing Company, the Anakeesta mountaintop attraction, Margaritaville... What can we say? The ’Burg is hoppin’," Southern Living said. 

Several North Carolina mountain towns also made the list, including Blowing Rock, Black Mountain, and Boone.
