There is no place more beautiful than the Smoky Mountains in the Fall. Do you like colorful leaves? Crisp fresh air? Amazing mountain views? The Great Smoky Mountains are a wonderful place to visit in the summertime, but in the Fall, the mountains become magical. Here are 4 things to do in the Smoky Mountains in the Fall:
1. Visit the Great Smoky Mountains National Park
If you are looking to get away from it all, enjoy long walks in the mountain woods, smelling the autumn cool air, sitting next to the clear clean waters of the Pigeon River. In the Great Smoky Mountains National Park there are trails to walk, drive, bike and ride horses on within the park. If you are interested in hiking, there are over 100 paths to choose from. From the most experienced hikers to newbies, there is a hiking trail for everyone, all with fantastic views of the colorful Smokies.
2. Go Zip Lining
Do you enjoy zip lining? There are many zip lines in the Smoky Mountains area, and they are all a great way to experience the Smoky Mountains in the Fall. Check out Legacy Mountain Ziplines or race your family at the Anakeesta “Deuling Ziplines”. Soar above the tree lines and take in all the colors of the Fall in all their glory. The view doesn’t get much better than that!
3. Visit Dollywood
Come and experience the Smokies staple, Dollywood, as they decorate for Autumn! Watch a live show, visit Craftsman’s Valley to see glass blowing, buckle up on thrilling rollercoasters and try some amazing food. A trip to the Smokies wouldn’t be complete without a day in Dollywood, taking in the sights and experiencing Fall in the park. If you come around Halloween, enjoy the Great Pumpkin Luminights or the Harvest Festival. Dollywood is a great place to visit to feel the true spirit of a Smoky Mountain Autumn.
4. Go to the Gatlinburg Space Needle
If you want a full view of the beautiful fall colors in the Smoky Mountains, take a trip to the Gatlinburg Space Needle. The attraction reaches 400 -feet in the air, and offers a breathtaking panoramic view of both downtown Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountains. Fall is the best time of the year to visit the attraction because of the ability to see the fall landscape of the mountains.
