    If you're looking for a town that's somewhat similar to Gatlinburg but with a college you're best bet will be Boone, NC. You can go to college at Appalachian State University and have the mountain vibe you're looking for.

    Here are some links I think you'll find helpful about the App State:




    Here are some links about Boone:




    And here is a link about the nearby town of Blowing Rock. Blowing Rock would be a nearby fantastic place to live as well if you were to attend App State.


    You can learn a lot by browsing the above links and following links within their websites. If I can get you more specific info I'd be happy to help. You may want to look back through my answered questions since I have probably answered other things about western NC that you may find helpful.

    Source(s): I live near the Boone area and we own a home there that we rent out. So I know a lot about the area and what a fantastic place it would be to attend college.

    I think you are looking for Waynesville NC. I visited there, and it is the cutest little place I've ever seen. No tacky tourist shops like Gatlinburg, but down-home. Like Mayberry in 2012.
