Destination guide

Rustic charm and mountain views

With the Great Smoky Mountains National Park for a backyard, this Charleston is just a bit different than the one further south. Here, rural beauty is the main draw, with no shortage of hiking trails, glittering streams, and roaring waterfalls. Travelers seeking an urban escape can hop over the Tennessee border and explore nearby Gatlinburg, but Charleston's top attraction is most definitely its rustic surroundings. Nature lovers will enjoy dramatic sights and cascading hills, whether it's from a kayak on the Tuckasegee River or from the front door of a homey Charleston vacation rental.

Things to do

A haven for nature lovers and adventure seekers

Charleston and the surrounding Great Smoky Mountains are a true haven for nature-lovers, with endless ways to feel one with the Great Outdoors. Birders can head to Clingmans Dome to watch for Great Horned owls, while animal-lovers should be on the lookout for black bears roaming the valley of Cades Cove. Licensed fisherman will love the 2,900 miles of streams throughout the region. The hardest decision you'll have to make from your Charleston vacation rental is whether you want a trail that heads up high, down low, or to the base of a waterfall.


Come prepared for gorgeous views and endless adventures

Travelers visiting Charleston should come prepared. Miles and miles of hiking trails lead to undoubtedly epic views, but changing elevations can mean experiencing all 4 seasons, sometimes in one day. With the right gear, however, it's impossible to be bored. Whether you're hiking local trails, floating in a canoe, or fishing, camping, or picnicking at the base of a waterfall, time spent in the Great Smoky Mountains is filled with untamed beauty. Animal-lovers and birdwatchers will surely keep busy, thanks to a wide variety of species living on the ground, in the caves, and in the sky.


Four seasons in a day, all year long

Thanks to dramatic changes in elevation, travelers visiting Charleston should be ready for all types of weather, no matter the season. Spring is the wettest and most unpredictable, and it's not uncommon to start the day with sunny skies and end it with snowfall. The summer brings with it warmer, hazier weather, though those seeking a respite from the heat just need to climb a bit higher, where temps rarely go over 80. Fall is crisp, cool, and dry, while winters tend to be mild, with only the occasional surprise snowstorm.

Natural features

A glimpse of nature around every corner

Thanks to the Great Smoky Mountains, Charleston is literally surrounded by natural beauty. You won't walk far before finding another waterfall, cave, or valley. Expect your views to be constantly filled with lush green trees, trickling streams, and, in the spring and summer, wildflowers. The other inhabitants aren't just staying in the neighboring Charleston vacation rentals, either. Along with streams and lakes filled with freshwater fish, visitors and locals alike are used to sharing the great outdoors with bears, deer, and a diverse array of wild birds.
