The Great Smoky Mountains are a mountain range that rises along the Tennessee–North Carolina border in the southeastern United States. Did you know that the Great Smoky Mountains is the most visited national park in our country with over 12.5 million visitors in 2019? Yup, it’s true! But why is it such a popular destination? Because it not only offers amazing hikes with cascading waterfalls, roaming wildlife and a view that stretches out over 500,000 acres, but it’s also FREE! That’s right, it is one of the only National Parks that does not charge an entrance fee in the United States.
