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.
Get some historical perspective at Biltmore and Noah Bud Ogle Cabin. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Walker Sisters' Cabin and Spas & Wellness. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Great Smoky Mountains National Park: Wheels Through Time Transportation Museum (in Maggie Valley), Asheville (Basilica of Saint Lawrence & River Arts District) and Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. Tours & Tastings (in Mills River). There's still lots to do: sample the fine beverages at Sugarlands Distilling Company, take in the awesome beauty at Mount LeConte, take a memorable drive along Gatlinburg Scenic Overlook, and do a tasting at Mountain Valley Winery.

To see photos, ratings, where to stay, and tourist information, read our Great Smoky Mountains National Park online attractions planner .

Expect a daytime high around 87°F in August, and nighttime lows around 68°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
