Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the most visited National Park in the United States. It is a National Park and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The latter designation given by the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO); as it is an area of exceptional natural beauty, an outstanding example of a diverse Arcto-Tertiary geoflora era, one of the largest remaining remnants of the Arcto-Tertiary geoflora in the world, and one of the most ecologically rich and diverse temperate zone protected areas in the world.
Visitors may access the park through its two entrances. One is in Gatlinburg, Tenessee; the other in Cherokee, North Carolina.
There are many things to do at Great Smoky Mountains National Park. These include auto touring, bicycling, camping, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, picnicking, ranger-led programs, and wildlife viewing among others.
Where ever one turns, there is natural beauty that meets the eye at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
No wonder, it is the most visited National Park in the United States. I loved my and hubby’s visit there. We look forward to seeing more of the country’s National Parks.
