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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Museum of Appalachia and Smoky Mountain Trains Museum. Visiting Bald River Falls and Chimney Tops Trail will get you outdoors. Change things up with these side-trips from Great Smoky Mountains National Park: Cataloochee Valley (in Great Smoky Mountains National Park), Carver Orchards & Farm Market (in Cosby) and Max Patch (in Hot Springs). The adventure continues: trek along Alum Cave Trail, trot along with a tour on horseback, look for all kinds of wild species at Bays Mountain Park & Planetarium, and take in the dramatic scenery at Whitewater Falls.
