Townsend

— 9 nights

Peaceful Side of the Smokies

The quietest of the three main entrances to the World Heritage-listed national park encompassing part of the Great Smoky Mountains, Townsend is a low-key town.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Walker Sisters' Cabin and Little Greenbrier School. Explore hidden gems such as Elkmont Ghost Town and The Sinks. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Townsend: Vonore (Fort Loudoun State Park & Citico Wildlife Wilderness), Cades Cove (in Great Smoky Mountains National Park) and Zipline (in Bryson City). There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at ABR's Visitor & Education Center, Head underground at Tuckaleechee Caverns, admire the sheer force of Spruce Flats Falls, and play a few rounds at Wild Laurel Golf Course.

In May in Townsend, expect temperatures between 79°F during the day and 57°F at night.
