Tennessee – The cities on the Tennessee side of the Smokies provide a full range of activities for the people that visit each year. Metropolitan areas like Knoxville offer theater and the arts as well as sports entertainment and a vibrant night life while quieter areas like Townsend, allow you to get away from it all and experience really ‘getting away from it all.’
North Carolina – The North Carolina side of the Smoky Mountains is completely different then the Tennessee side. Resort towns dot the landscape and on their boundaries are tourist areas like Cherokee and Maggie Valley. The location in the mountains gives access to skiing during the winter months and if you want to try your hand at gaming there is even a world class casino nestled into these mountains.
Georiga – Only the top half of Georgia is really in the Smokies. The small town of Dillard is located in this southern Appalachian section of Georgia and this little tourist town is doing well bringing, great fod and some of the best antique shopping that you will ever experience.
