The Smoky Mountains are loaded with more attractions and entertainment than you could hope to do in 6 months! When mentioning visiting the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, you can’t help but think about Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, Dollywood Theme Park, and Dolly’s Splash Country. Museums, moonshine, wine tours, Shopping, ATV rentals, rollercoasters, you name It! Fun in the Great Smoky Mountains, either in the National Park or the communities around it, comes in a great variety to suit many tastes. You will surely find something you like here. Some even provide military discounts and other perks.

This is a small list of major attractions that we find are most popular among Smoky Mountain guests. Remember that the the greatest attraction is the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, its inhabitants, its wildlife and its biome. All the fanciest, most expensive attractions in the area have the mountains themselves to thank for what it has around it.
