Land of the Sky

Asheville nestles between two major mountain ranges in the scenic western section of North Carolina.
Get in touch with nature at Tumblestone Tours and Transportation and The Gorge Zipline Canopy Tour. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Biltmore Winery at Antler Hill Village and BREW-ed. There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Grovewood Village, examine the collection at Asheville Pinball Museum, get a taste of the local shopping with Woolworth Walk, and relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas.

The Gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains

Nestled in the lush, wooded forests of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg is Tennessee’s premier mountain resort destination.
Take a break from the city and head to Newfound Gap Road and Gatlinburg Trail. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Tennessee Legend Distillery - Newport Hwy and Gatlinburg Wine Cellar. Venture out of the city with trips to Bush's Visitor Center (in Chestnut Hill) and Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail (in Great Smoky Mountains National Park). There's still lots to do: hike along Chimney Tops Trail, stroll around Chimneys Picnic Area, get to know the fascinating history of Noah Bud Ogle Cabin, and look for all kinds of wild species at Roaring Fork.
