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 Little River Road and Ramsey Cascades. Escape the urban bustle at Roaring Fork and Porters Creek Trail. There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Sugarlands Valley Nature Trail, tour the pleasant surroundings at Deep Creek, steep yourself in history at Walker Sisters' Cabin, and hike along Charlies Bunion.

To find other places to visit, photos, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Great Smoky Mountains National Park day trip planner .

Expect a daytime high around 60°F in November, and nighttime lows around 39°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
