Great Smoky Mountains National Park

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Biltmore Estate (in Asheville) and The Island in Pigeon Forge (in Pigeon Forge). There's still lots to do: appreciate the views at Cades Cove, steep yourself in history at Little Greenbrier School, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount LeConte, and take a memorable drive along Newfound Gap Road.

For where to stay, ratings, photos, and more tourist information, read our Great Smoky Mountains National Park trip website .

In November, daytime highs in Great Smoky Mountains National Park are 60°F, while nighttime lows are 38°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
