Great Smoky Mountains National Park ©
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.
Take a break from the city and head to Roaring Fork and Clingmans Dome. Step out of Great Smoky Mountains National Park with an excursion to Fontana General Store in Fontana Dam--about 42 minutes away. There's much more to do: hike along Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail, admire the verdant scenery at Cades Cove, contemplate the long history of Noah Bud Ogle Cabin, and take in the dramatic scenery at Laurel Falls.
