Great Smoky Mountains National Park

— 15 nights

A Wondrous Diversity of Life

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Great Smoky Mountains National Park (Cades Cove, Balsam Mountain Road, &more). There's much more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Roaring Fork, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Clingmans Dome, take in the dramatic scenery at Laurel Falls, and see human ingenuity at work at Fontana Dam & Visitors Center.
