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.
Get outdoors at Grotto Falls Trail and DuPont State Recreational Forest. Get some cultural insight at Oconaluftee Indian Village and Woolworth Walk. Get out of town with these interesting Great Smoky Mountains National Park side-trips: Franklin Gem and Mineral Museum (in Franklin), Asheville (Basilica of Saint Lawrence & Lexington Glassworks) and Tallulah Gorge State Park (in Tallulah Falls). Make the 23rd (Tue) an awe-inspiring day at Pisgah National Forest. There's much more to do: cruise along Newfound Gap Road, stroll through Chimney Tops, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Whiteside Mountain, and trek along Alum Cave Trail.

In October, daytime highs in Great Smoky Mountains National Park are 72°F, while nighttime lows are 51°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
