Are you itching to travel again but want to visit someplace closer to home? The Smoky Mountains of Tennessee is a good place to start. The Great Smoky Mountains are filled with adventure and waiting for you. You might see bear cubs playing, sharks swimming over your head, or enjoying unbelievable views that take you above the clouds.
The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a black bear habitat; chances are good that you’ll catch sight of these magnificent creatures when you visit. Our favorite is Grotto Falls. There is something very magical about standing behind a waterfall as it flows to the ground; this is the only waterfall in the Smokies where you can do this.
Get off the beaten path on one of Cades Cove’s numerous hiking trails. The journey along Abrams Creek is worth every step. It’s the most popular trail in Cades Cove. Plan to spend the day at Dollywood, play a round of mini-golf, or take some laps on a go-kart track. The activity options are many, and you can do as little or as much as you want.
