Once you step foot in the Smoky Mountains, you’ll quickly understand why it’s one of the most-visited destinations in the U.S. A stunning preserve protecting hundreds of plant and animal species, Great Smoky Mountains National Park is an American treasure.

Endless ridges build into mountaintops with panoramic views of the Appalachian range. The park’s trail system offers many opportunities to explore the wild with easy and difficult treks. And for those seeking low-impact activities, you can easily drive to Clingman’s Dome, the highest point in the park and the third-highest point in the eastern U.S. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for black bears and elk!

Both Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg feature plenty to do. From riding the Great Smoky Mountain Wheel at the Island in Pigeon Forge to tasting spirits at Ole Smoky Moonshine, there’s fun for all ages. And for the brave at heart, the Gatlinburg SkyBridge offers a walk on the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in North America.

Need a day in the city? Head 25 miles west to Knoxville, Tennessee’s hidden gem. Here, you can break out your orange and white as you attend a Volunteers game at the University of Tennessee. Or perhaps catch a show at the historic Tennessee Theatre. In either case, take some time to explore the buzzy shopping and dining districts of Market Square and Old City!
