About Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Did you know that the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is THE most visited park in the USA? There must be a good reason for that, so we think you should go an explore to find out just why it's so popular!

The park is filled with beautiful forest which lie on the border of North Carolina and Tennessee. It is FILLED with diverse animal and plant life which kids can learn all about, and explore.

Whether you are up for an adventure, or looking for a relaxing family day out, there will be something for you at this beautiful national park. With over 800 square miles to explore it's no wonder that a popular choice is by car. There are 384 miles of road that allow you to see all the corners of the "Smokies", and great books that are perfect to guide you through all the sights. 

From four wheels to two, why not see the park on bike! Most of the roads are accessible by bike, but just take note that with the exception of the Cades Cove Loop Road, the roads aren't completely suitable by bike. However, the 11 miles of the Cades Cove Loop Road give you a great way to spot the wildlife, as well as historic homesites from the 19th century!

The Great Smoky Mountains National Park has an amazing collection of historic buildings - over 90 in fact! With barns, outbuildings, houses, schools and churches - most of these have been preserved so you can really feel like you can step back in time!

Take some time fishing, or spend an afternoon horse riding...the choice is endless! Just don't forget your sense of adventure, because you'll need it!
