Smoky Mountains National Park
The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a major tourist attraction in
the region. Over 9 million tourists and 11 million non-recreational visitors
traveled to the park in 2003, twice as many as visited any other national
park. Surrounding towns, notably Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Sevierville, and
Townsend, Tennessee, and Cherokee, Sylva, Maggie Valley, and Bryson City,
North Carolina receive a significant portion of their income from tourism
associated with the park.
The two main visitors' centers inside the park are Sugarlands Visitors'
Center near the Gatlinburg entrance to the park and Oconaluftee Visitors'
Center near Cherokee, North Carolina at the eastern entrance to the park.
These ranger stations provide exhibits on wildlife, geology, and the history
of the park. They also sell books, maps, and souvenirs.
U.S. Highway 441 bisects the park, providing automobile access to many
trailheads and overlooks, most notably that of Newfound Gap. At an elevation
of 5,048 feet, it is the lowest gap in the mountains and is situated near
the center of the park, on the Tennessee/North Carolina state line, halfway
between the border towns of Gatlinburg and Cherokee. It was here that in
1940, from the Rockefeller Memorial, Franklin Delano Roosevelt dedicated the
national park. On clear days Newfound Gap offers arguably the most
spectacular scenes accessible via highway in the park.
The park has a number of historical attractions. The most well-preserved of
these is Cades Cove, a valley with a number of preserved historic buildings
including log cabins, barns, and churches. Cades Cove is the single most
frequented destination in the national park. Self-guided automobile and
bicycle tours offer the many sightseers a glimpse into the way of life of
old-time southern Appalachia. Other historical areas within the park include
Roaring Fork, Cataloochee, Elkmont, and the Mountain Farm Museum and Mingus
Mill at Oconaluftee.
