Covered in dense green forest, the Smoky Mountains area is full of hiking trails for all abilities. Deep Creek has a 2-mile trail that takes you past 3 waterfalls, climbing across rocky trails and well-worn forest paths. During the summer, you'll see lots of people lazily tubing down the river, or cooling off in the swimming holes. For the best view of the mountains, visit Clingmans Dome, the tallest of the Smokies. Walk up the spiral pathway to the top of the observation tower, and on clear days you can see across the mountain tops and the national park.


Best time to travel to Tennessee vacation homes

Winters are mild, with rainfall usually not lasting too long, and hurricanes rarely reaching the state. The Smokies are usually a little cooler than the city, and even have a short skiing season, which is popular with families and beginners.

Big South Fork sits on a bend of the Cumberland River, and is popular for fishing, hiking and horseback riding. With a rocky terrain, you'll often see climbers taking on the challenging drops found around the park, and the winding rapids make fun for whitewater rafting, taking you through the twists and turns of the river at high speeds.
