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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Laurel Falls and Chimneys Picnic Area. Get in touch with nature at Roaring Fork and Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail. There's much more to do: admire the verdant scenery at Cades Cove, trek along Alum Cave Trail, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Clingmans Dome, and explore the striking landscape at Chimney Tops Trail.

To find where to stay, ratings, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Great Smoky Mountains National Park vacation planner.

Expect a daytime high around 53°F in December, and nighttime lows around 36°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
