Wherever you go in the Smoky Mountains, you’ll be surrounded by incredible scenery as the leaves change color and the temperatures gradually drop. There are some especially scenic places that are close by and well worth the short drive. Be sure to pay a visit to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, where you can make your way through picturesque roads like Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail or Newfound Gap Road. If you want to experience a truly glorious view of the area, you can head to the top of the Great Smoky Mountain Wheel at The Island in Pigeon Forge.
3. See the Smokies on a Motorcycle
Fall is perhaps the best time for riding a motorcycle, especially in a region as beautiful as the Smoky Mountains. The area is known for having some of the best riding trails, such as Tail of the Dragon and Highway 441, where you’ll get incredible views as you ride around the Smokies. If you want to ride a Harley, you can rent one from Smoky Mountain Harley Davidson and pick up your dream two-wheel ride. As long as you have a valid motorcycle license from your home state, you can enjoy the ultimate journey through the mountain roads, where you can see the landscape up close and enjoy the cool autumn air.
No fall vacation in the Smoky Mountains is complete without a trip to Dollywood! The whole family will enjoy the theme park’s rides, restaurants, shows, and special events. If you come in October, you can see free gospel concerts with the price of admission during the National Southern Gospel & Harvest Celebration. If you plan your visit in November, you can enjoy the park’s Smoky Mountain Christmas festival, which includes amazing light displays and a variety of Christmas shows.
5. Observe the Area’s Diverse Wildlife
The Smoky Mountains are home to a wide variety of animal species. You don’t have to travel far to see some of the area’s most famous critters out and about. You are likely to see lots of birds that migrate during the fall right from your condo’s balcony. If you want a chance to observe more wildlife, you should visit the famous Cades Cove area of the national park, where you’re likely to see woodchucks, turkeys, raccoons, black bears, white-tail deer, and many other species. Make sure you bring a good camera and remember to keep a safe distance from all of the animals.
