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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Noah Bud Ogle Cabin and Mount LeConte. Bring the kids along to Roaring Fork and Hollywood Star Cars Museum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Great Smoky Mountains National Park: Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. Tours & Tastings (in Mills River), Wheels Through Time Transportation Museum (in Maggie Valley) and Asheville (Spas & Wellness, Biltmore, & more). The adventure continues: brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Sugarlands Distilling Company, contemplate the long history of Walker Sisters' Cabin, trek along Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail, and cruise along Gatlinburg Scenic Overlook.

For reviews, photos, and tourist information, read our Great Smoky Mountains National Park holiday planner.

In March in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, expect temperatures between 60°F during the day and 39°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
