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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Basilica of Saint Lawrence and Grotto Falls Trail. Get outdoors at DuPont State Recreational Forest and Tallulah Gorge State Park. Get out of town with these interesting Great Smoky Mountains National Park side-trips: Oconaluftee Indian Village (in Cherokee), Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. Tours & Tastings (in Mills River) and Mountain Valley Vineyards (in Pigeon Forge). And it doesn't end there: appreciate the views at Cades Cove, take in the awesome beauty at Clingmans Dome, explore the striking landscape at Chimney Tops, and let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour.

In September, plan for daily highs up to 83°F, and evening lows to 62°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
