Smoky Mountain Travel Guide


They don't call them the GREAT Smoky Mountains for nothing! Indeed, the Smokies is the most visited national park in the country--and this guide will show you why. It covers the best things to do in the national park as well as attractions, restaurants, accommodations, and shopping opportunities in the surrounding gateway communities of Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Sevierville, Townsend, and Cherokee. (The most popular locations are covered in the greatest depth.)

Whatever your bliss--going miniature golfing amidst dinosaurs, hiking to waterfalls you can walk behind, floating in mid-air at a skydiving simulator, discovering chic sandwich shops and gourmet hotspots, soaking in a private hot tub with amazing mountain views, or shopping for outlet bargains and local crafts--this essential guide's got you covered.

With this app you can:

* get the real insider's scoop on what to see and do in the Smokies
* sort entries you want to read by geographic area, by price, or by category
* view more than 2,400 gorgeous images
* get prices, rates, and hours
* link directly to an entry's webpage and/or call its phone number
* get turn-by-turn directions and see it on a map


★ About the Author ★

Travel writer and Knoxville resident Katy Koontz has been hooked on the Smokies for more than two decades. She's shrieked in their haunted houses, snapped up their Appalachian crafts, hit holes-in-one on their miniature golf courses (that's putt putt to you fellow locals), hiked their peaks, biked their valleys, gone tubing down their cold mountain rivers, whizzed through their treetops on ziplines, rode horseback through their woods, and rolled down their slopes inside a giant Zorb sphere. (She's even snorkeled the Smokies!)

Her research has taken her to every corner of the gateway towns of Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Sevierville, Townsend, and Cherokee to regularly report on the newest and craziest attractions, the best places to stay (for romantic getaways as well as family vacations), and the greatest grub the region has to dish out. She also taps into the national park's natural nirvana on a regular basis.

Katy is also the author of Family Fun in the Smokies: A Family-Friendly Guide to the Great Smoky Mountains (published by the Great Smoky Mountains Association, 2012)
