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.
Biltmore and Walker Sisters' Cabin will appeal to history buffs. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Noah Bud Ogle Cabin and Mount LeConte. Venture out of the city with trips to Asheville (Spas & Wellness, Basilica of Saint Lawrence, & more), Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. Tours & Tastings (in Mills River) and Wheels Through Time Transportation Museum (in Maggie Valley). There's still lots to do: brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Sugarlands Distilling Company, see the interesting displays at Hollywood Star Cars Museum, do a tasting at Sugarland Cellars, and cruise along Gatlinburg Scenic Overlook.

To find maps, other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Great Smoky Mountains National Park online attractions planner .

In October, plan for daily highs up to 74°F, and evening lows to 51°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
