Great Smoky Mountains National Park
Ridge upon ridge of forest straddles the border between North Carolina and Tennessee in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. World renowned for its diversity of plant and animal life, the beauty of its ancient mountains, and the quality of its remnants of Southern Appalachian mountain culture, this is America's most visited national park.
First time ever to the Smoky Mountain National Park- was amazing, beautiful. So much to see and trails to hike. Hiked to Laurel Falls. Great views of the mountains along the trail and the waterfall was a worth the hike. Trail does wind a ways and there is a very steep drop if one is not watching ones step. Definitely a highlight of our vacation. Highly recommend it.
This place is absolutely amazing. You have to bring your family by to visit all of the fantastic things to do and see.God has truly blessed us with a gorgeous place to live. Plan your next vacation to visit us. There are so many fabulous things to do. I'm proud to be a part of the great piece of God's earth.. God bless you all.
How can you rate The Great Smoky Mountains any less than 5 stars? Amazing! One of the few national parks that has no entry fee. The land that is today Great Smoky Mountains National Park was once privately owned. Action by the Tennessee legislature would be required to lift this deed restriction if Great Smoky Mountains National Park ever wished to charge an entrance fee.
My husband and I visit the Great Smoky Mountains at least once a year. These are the most beautiful mountains on the East Coast. I highly recommend going to Cades Cove, where you can drive through a park and see buildings from the past as well as wildlife. I have heard many people say that when they go there early in the spring, they have seen bears.

Awesome! If your looking for solitude you'll probably have to spend the night in the woods or visit in an off season. Even with all the people this place took my breath away. All the views the numerous trails and places every where you can pull over and enjoy a view of this amazing place. Unfortunately the heavy vehicular traffic has changed the color of the blue smokey mountains that this area is famous for. Still a worth while trip. Even if you aren't a hiker, you can walk a path for a short distance and appreciate it beauty. FYI it can rain in a moment.
