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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Biltmore and Walker Sisters' Cabin. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Noah Bud Ogle Cabin and Mount LeConte. Explore Great Smoky Mountains National Park's surroundings by going to Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. Tours & Tastings (in Mills River), Asheville (Spas & Wellness, Basilica of Saint Lawrence, & more) and Wheels Through Time Transportation Museum (in Maggie Valley). And it doesn't end there: brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Sugarlands Distilling Company, tour the pleasant surroundings at Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail, see the interesting displays at Hollywood Star Cars Museum, and cruise along Gatlinburg Scenic Overlook.

To find traveler tips, where to stay, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our Great Smoky Mountains National Park trip itinerary planner.

Expect a daytime high around 60°F in November, and nighttime lows around 39°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
