The location of an old Cherokee village, Bryson City embraces a quiet side of the Great Smoky Mountains. From its vantage point about 30 minutes west of the national park’s entrance, the town’s accommodations and family-owned restaurants along Everett Street provide the comforts of home to thousands of visitors embarking on their exploration of Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Visitors with an affinity for water can explore whitewater rafting, kayaking, tubing, or fishing here, while land lovers can try horseback riding, mountain biking, or travel by scenic train.
