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.
Popular historic sites such as Noah Bud Ogle Cabin and Walker Sisters' Cabin are in your itinerary. Take a break from the city and head to Mount LeConte and Chimney Tops Trail. Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail, cruise along Newfound Gap Road, look for all kinds of wild species at Roaring Fork, and admire the sheer force of Laurel Falls.

Expect a daytime high around 87°F in July, and nighttime lows around 69°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Sat) so you can travel back home.
