Bird Watching
With more than 200 species of birds in the park, you should be able to spot a few on your ramblings.
Blue Ridge Parkway - Foders
The Blue Ridge Parkway is a 469-mile scenic corridor that runs through the southern Appalachian Mountains from Shenandoah National Park, in Virginia, to Great Smoky Mountains National Park, on the North Carolina-Tennessee border.
Blue Ridge Parkway Scenic Drive
Showcasing the age-old beauty of the southern Appalachians, the Blue Ridge Parkway is one of America�s most popular scenic drives. Connecting Shenandoah and Great Smoky Mountains National Parks, the two-lane drive rides the crest of the Blue Ridge and other ranges, occasionally dipping into hollows or climbing above timberline to heights over 6,000 feet [1,828.8 meters].
Camping in the Great Smoky Mountains
Weather is both the park's beauty and its bane. The same fog that cloaks mountaintops in an eerie, otherworldly "smoke" also blocks the views.
The park contains more than 700 miles of streams suitable for fishing.

The Best of North Carolina
North Carolina State Page - Travel + Leisure
The mid-Atlantic states offer a lot to travelers: long stretches of deserted beach, buzzing urban centers, serene rural splendor, and unparalleled history all within a compact geographic area.
Raft with Kids in the Smokies
Raft with kids as young as age 4. Family whitewater in Western North Carolina. We're only 15 minutes from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Raleigh-Durham - Foders
Raleigh is the largest of the cities that compose the North Carolina's Research Triangle (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill). It's an area that's been characterized as full of "trees, tees, and Ph.D's."
The Smokies - Driving Tour
This loop through western North Carolina begins in Asheville, crosses the eastern Continental Divide, and makes a stop at the home of poet Carl Sandburg before dipping into South Carolina along a quiet road studded by a string of state parks. After a zigzag climb to the resort town of Highlands and through a gem-mining area, you�ll pull into Cherokee, where tourism and Native American heritage coexist.
Walks and Hikes
Quiet Walkways. Scores of short trails and interpretive walks beckon from nearly every curve in the park's roads.
