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.
Explore Great Smoky Mountains National Park's surroundings by going to Pigeon Forge (Titanic Museum & The Island in Pigeon Forge). There's much more to do: admire the verdant scenery at Cades Cove, meet the residents at Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies, take in the awesome beauty at Mount LeConte, and steep yourself in history at Walker Sisters' Cabin.
