Take an Auto Tour
If you aren’t quite ready to get out and explore nature on foot, we at Amazing Views Cabin Rentals suggest that families and groups spend the afternoon tooling around on one of the many scenic auto tours in the area. Not only will these tours take you past many of the same historical cabins and buildings that the nature hike would, but you will also be able to catch a glimpse of the nature in the area blooming as well.
Our favorite Smoky Mountain Auto Tours are:
- Little River Road
- Newfound Gap Road
- Cades Cove Loop
- Gatlinburg Bypass
- Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail
What we love most about these roads is that many of them offer their own scenic pull-offs and observation stops to help guests get an even better view of the mountains during their drive.
Don’t forget your camera! These scenic stops are perfect for you and your family or group to stop and post with the scenic views of spring in the Smoky Mountains as your backdrop.
Plan An Outdoor Adventure
