Great Smoky Mountains National Park contains some of the highest mountains east of the Mississippi River, but it's the ease of access that makes this national park the United States' most visited.
Popular historic sites such as Andrew Johnson National Historic Site and Fields of the Wood are in your itinerary. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Crane Creek Vineyards and Stumphouse Mountain Tunnel. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Great Smoky Mountains National Park: Bays Mountain Park & Planetarium (in Kingsport), The Ridges Golf Club (in Hayesville) and Cumberland Gap National Historical Park (in Middlesboro). There's lots more to do: contemplate the long history of Cradle of Forestry, do a tasting at Stonewall Creek Vineyards, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Bootleggers Distillery, and take in the dramatic natural features at Chimney Tops Trail.

To find traveler tips, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our Great Smoky Mountains National Park online travel route planner .

Expect a daytime high around 86°F in June, and nighttime lows around 66°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
