The vistas of the Great Smoky Mountains offer a gift to the eye–a series of rocky peaks and soft ridges that roll, seemingly endlessly, into the smoky blue mist from which the chain takes its name. Families find much to do at the U.S.’s most visited national park. Along with scenic drives, little ones enjoy “hiking” the park’s Quiet Walkways, easy trails less than a half-mile in length. With older kids and teens, go bicycling, whitewater rafting, and horseback riding, as well as learn about Native American and pioneer history. Don’t forget to add a visit to nearby Dollywood and Splash Country.
