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 (The Island in Pigeon Forge & Titanic Museum). Next up on the itinerary: appreciate the views at Cades Cove, sample the fine beverages at Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine, contemplate the long history of Walker Sisters' Cabin, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Charlies Bunion.
