With nearly 13 million visitors in 2022, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park had more visitors than the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, and Yellowstone combined.
The fun zone for the Smokies! Dollywood Amusement Park, Dollywood Splash Country, and near nightly fireworks shows in the Summer season, Ferris wheels, bungee jumping, tons of outlet stores, and miles of family-friendly fun right on the Parkway.
Suppose you can’t find what you’re looking for in Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg. In that case, Sevierville steps up with seemingly unlimited activities, and many more attractions currently being developed, to bring in the fun-seeking public. From shopping at outlet centers to outdoor activities, to water parks, the Tennessee Smokies Double-A baseball team, and too many restaurants to count. Not to mention, a little thing called the Great Smoky Mountains National Park filled with scenic drives, hiking, biking, canoeing, and zip lining, take your pick. And of course, it’s Dolly Parton’s hometown!
