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.
Take a break from the city and head to Little River Road and Ramsey Cascades. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at The Sinks and Metcalf Bottoms Picnic Area. Step out of Great Smoky Mountains National Park to go to Fontana Dam and see Fontana General Store, which is approximately 42 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: take in the awesome beauty at Clingmans Dome, take in the dramatic scenery at Laurel Falls, explore the striking landscape at Chimney Tops Trail, and get to know the fascinating history of Noah Bud Ogle Cabin.

In July, daytime highs in Great Smoky Mountains National Park are 87°F, while nighttime lows are 69°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 6th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
