Here’s How You Can Avoid The Crowds When You Visit Great Smoky Mountains National Park
The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is one of the most frequently visited places in the U.S. National Parks system, and for good reason. This stunning park shared between North Carolina and Tennessee is named for the beautiful and ethereal fog that frequently surrounds the mountains and offers a “smoky” appearance. Fortunately, there are ways to avoid the crowds when you visit this popular national park.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
