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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like River Rafting & Tubing and Roaring Fork. There's lots more to do: take in the awesome beauty at Clingmans Dome, hike along Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail, stroll through Grotto Falls Trail, and get to know the fascinating history of Noah Bud Ogle Cabin.
