Great Smoky Mountains
National Park

Cascading waterfalls, roaming wildlife and a view that stretches out over 500,000 acres – this is the country’s most-visited national park. Vacationers often start in Gatlinburg and make their way to one of the park’s famous paths where they can find everything they’ve been looking for.

Because the experience changes season to season, there’s always a new scene to come explore.
