A Wondrous Diversity of Life

Great Smoky Mountains National Park contains some of the highest mountains east of the Mississippi River, but it's the ease of access that makes this national park the United States' most visited.
On the 18th (Sat), look for all kinds of wild species at Roaring Fork, then stroll through Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail, and then take in the dramatic scenery at Laurel Falls. On the 19th (Sun), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Clingmans Dome and then pause for some photo ops at Rockefeller Memorial.

To see where to stay, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park journey planning website.
