Great Smoky Mountains

Gatlinburg, Tennessee

Explore Southern Appalachian history and culture at Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Start your morning on the porch reveling in the thick morning fog from which the region earned its name. Later, bicycle through Cades Cove, or try your luck angling for rainbow trout on 700 miles of fishable streams. With 800 miles of trails, and over 80-historic structures including log cabin schoolhouses and gristmills, a journey here is a step back to a earlier era, where nature tended to steal the show.
