Great Smoky Mountains National Park, North Carolina
Within the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, explore the flora, fauna and folklore of this famous World Heritage Site.
By visiting one of the ninety-seven buildings preserved, you will surely step back in time in five historic areas. In Cataloochee, look at 19th and 20th-century wood-frame buildings, including churches, a school and houses, and learn about the 1,200 people who lived in the valley in 1910.
Other historic buildings are in the Cades Cove, Oconaluftee and Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail sections. Visit Clingmans Dome, the highest peak at 2,025 meters, to climb an observation tower and gaze at far-away vistas.
