Great Smoky Mountains National Park
The Great Smoky Mountains National Park spans Tennessee and North Carolina. With more than 10 million visiting this park each year, it is one of the few national parks where you can enjoy scenic drives to Cades Cove or along the Roaring Fork Motor Trail and other outdoor activities like hiking, biking, and fishing. You can also pack a picnic for wonderful hikes to Abrams or Rainbow Falls. It is easy to see those sweeping views from the Smoky Mountains themselves. The massive natural expanse offers hard-to-match beauty with its unbroken chain of mist-shrouded mountain peaks rising above 5000 feet, meandering streams, cascading waterfalls, flower-strewn meadows, and miles of old-growth forest. So, yes, you do need to visit this place right away to quench your travel dreams!
