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.
Step out of the city life by going to Roaring Fork and Clingmans Dome. Appreciate the collections at Titanic Museum and Wheels Through Time Transportation. Venture out of the city with trips to Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster (in Pigeon Forge), River Rafting & Tubing (in Hartford) and Biltmore Estate (in Asheville). There's lots more to do: admire the verdant scenery at Cades Cove, stroll through Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail, take in the dramatic natural features at Chimney Tops, and identify plant and animal life at Quiet Walkways.

To find photos, reviews, more things to do, and more tourist information, use the Great Smoky Mountains National Park trip itinerary maker website .

Expect a daytime high around 83°F in September, and nighttime lows around 62°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 30th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
