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.
It was beautiful with so much natural beauty and a waterfall. The fall colors looks amazing and the drive was a memorable experience. The complete area is managed quite nicely, and the staff was very supportive and courteous. We had the opportunity to see bear and a baby bear from just few steps away on the way back. It was a great experience and would love to visit again.
Visited the smokey a few times. Always a great family getaway anytime of the year. There's always something for everyone to do here. The towns have shopping' food' and attractions. The park has camping, hiking and site seeing. Getting a cabin in the mountains for a week is always an awesome time for friends, family, or couples.

My love for The Smoky Mountains is unmeasurable!! I moved here 18 years ago, in 1999, from Louisiana and have felt at home ever since. The people are incredible. The beauty is beyond comprehensible. Each time I drive through the mountains I am mesmerised by the beauty of the tall mountains, endless steams, and timberland forests. It is Heaven on Earth. I now enjoy living in my log cabin in The Smoky Mountains! A true blessing.
We live in Florida and evacuated to Tennessee during the last hurricane and while we were there some friends of ours took us to this park and we loved it. You can spend the entire day there easily. There is a lot beautiful scenery to take pictures of. You can drive your own vehicle through Cades Cove which was awesome. If you have a convertible you can drop the top and enjoy the view. If you have a truck you can pile the kids in the back and they will have a blast.
This is a must see if you're ever in the area. Absolutely breathtaking scenery. Multiple hiking trails. Gorgeous waterfalls. Many of which you can drive right up to/ pull over in front of. Highly recommended for people of all ages.
