Huffington Post Names Smoky Mountains Top Hiking Destination

The Huffington Post asked National Geographic their favorite places to go for a hike and not surprisingly the Smoky Mountains were at the top of the list!  We were ecstatic to find our very own Smoky Mountains as number one on National Geographic’s list among other places such as Cinque Terre, Italy, Crete and Switzerland.  They point out the history of the Smokies as the homeland of the Cherokee Indians. Also, how the mountains were named by the Cherokee for the “mysterious wisps of blue-gray smoke that often shroud the highest peaks”.

There are plenty of beautiful hikes in the Smoky Mountains.  Be sure to decide if you want to take a hike with a view, maybe a hike with a waterfall or even one with a historical site.  Whichever you decide we’re positive the Smoky Mountains will not disappoint! Plan your next Smoky Mountain Hiketoday!

Laughing until we had tears. I’ve never seen anything like the look on my kids’ faces when we drove down the Parkway past Pigeon Forge attractions. Our hotel was so vibrant and the staff was upbeat and helpful. Pigeon Forge is the brightest spot in the Smoky Mountains. The high energy (and clean language) shows we saw in theaters had everyone in my family clapping their hands…even “sour” Uncle George.
