Great Smoky Mountains National Park
Visited in July
for 5 days
with budget* of: US$560
The Great Smokey Mountain National Park has beautiful views and waterfalls on the trails. It is the most visited one in the United States, with a very well-developed tourist region that has many good restaurants, entertainment facilities, and hotels. Some none-positive takeaways for you if you are planning to go: We would not go back to the same hotel in Gatlinburg where we stayed. Also, we would not recommend visiting the Cherokee Indian Reservation if you had a tight schedule.
