If you searched Google for “top places to visit in the Smoky Mountains,” you’d come up with three amazing results: Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg, and Pigeon Forge.
But what’s so special about each of those places, and why are they top destinations for tourists (and even for people moving to the Smokies)?
Great Smoky Mountains National Park
The Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which spans Tennessee and neighboring North Carolina, is truly a must-see. You’ll discover natural beauty you didn’t know existed, whether you’re visiting the campgrounds, hiking the hundreds of miles of trails, or casting a line in one of the park’s renowned fishing hotspots.
Unbelievable mountain views and locally owned businesses characterize Gatlinburg, which is also known as the gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This charming city has its own Space Needle observation tower and the Sky Lift, an aerial cable car that takes guests from downtown to Ober Gatlinburg, one of the best amusement parks and ski resorts in the region.
In addition to Dolly Parton’s Appalachian-themed amusement park, Dollywood, and the fantastic Smoky Mountain Opry, Pigeon Forge has a tremendous amount of natural beauty. You’ll discover amazing historic attractions, Parrot Mountain (a beautiful paradise for tropical birds and plants), and so much more in this beautiful town.
