Planning resource for vacationing in the Smokies

Wednesday, September 10, 2008

Looking for a great online resource to help plan your vacation or road trip to Great Smoky Mountains National Park? Take a look at the MySmokyMountainVacation website. The website, online since 1996, provides a wealth of information for planning your trip.

The site has a nice index for finding cabins, hotels, bed and breakfast inn’s, condos and campgrounds for each of the gateway communities on the Tennessee side of the Smokies. You can even find links to last minute specials on cabins, pet friendly cabins or cabins specifically for groups.

The site also includes an exhaustive list of suggestions on places to see, things to do, scenic drives, festivals, details on wildlife in the park, information on historic buildings, information on weddings in the park, as well as park rules and regulations. I especially liked the page called “101 reasons to visit the Smokies”. You can find information on anything to do from elk viewing, whitewater rafting, hot air balloon rides, llama trekking, to carriage and hayrides.

The website will also send you all the visitor information you need to help plan your trip.

Here’s the link to the website:
