Great Smoky Mountains National Park
America's most visited national park is in Tennessee and North Carolina.
Straddling the border of Tennessee and North Carolina with a collection of rounded mountain peaks, lively rivers and preserved pioneer communities, Great Smoky Mountains National Park’s namesake is the natural blue fog ascending from its dense forests. With expansive views, Southern Appalachian mountain culture and two black bears per square mile, it’s no wonder that Great Smoky is America’s most visited national park. Some highlights include Cades Cove known for its abundant wildlife and a working grist mill, Clingmans Dome on the park’s highest point with a view of seven states, and dozens of waterfalls and cascades.
