Go For A Socially Distant Ride Through The North Carolina Mountains With The Great Smoky Mountains Railroad
The Smoky Mountains have an allure that attracts millions each year to explore the vistas, the terrain, cool mountain breezes during the summer, and the undeniable hospitality found in the mountain towns in the Smokies. And this summer will undoubtedly be no different – with the exception, of course, of finding attractions that are taking extra precautions to keep visitors (and employees) safe during the pandemic. Recently, the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad announced a litany of precautions they’re taking and we couldn’t be happier since the GSMR is one of the most popular activities in western North Carolina for locals and visitors alike.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
