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.
You've now added Cades Cove to your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to Fontana Dam & Visitors Center (in Great Smoky Mountains National Park), Topton (Otter Creek Trout Farm & Lakes End Marina) and Wishon's Fishing Hole (in Nantahala Township). The adventure continues: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Clingmans Dome, stop by Fontana General Store, explore the striking landscape at Nantahala National Forest, and pause for some photo ops at Rockefeller Memorial.

To find maps, other places to visit, where to stay, and other tourist information, use the Great Smoky Mountains National Park trip maker .

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