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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Great Smoky Mountains National Park: Pigeon Forge (Titanic Museum & The Island in Pigeon Forge). There's much more to do: appreciate the views at Cades Cove, meet the residents at Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount LeConte, and steep yourself in history at Walker Sisters' Cabin.

To see other places to visit, where to stay, photos, and tourist information, you can read our Great Smoky Mountains National Park journey planner .

In March, daytime highs in Great Smoky Mountains National Park are 62°F, while nighttime lows are 41°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
