Based along the border of Tennessee and North Carolina, the Great Smoky Mountains is the place where you’ll make memories of your outdoor adventures. You’ll climb Clingman’s Dome, a man-made peak that looks like a flying saucer. It rises more than 6,000 feet, giving you breathtaking views of its surrounding region. There is Paddle Fontana Lake, a spot with calm waters, ideal for watersports like kayaking and paddleboarding. Since the region is encompassed by thick forestry, you’ll certainly stumble upon a waterfall; after all, there are more than 100 in the Smokies. Whenever you find yourself musty from your expeditions, stop by one of them for a quick shower. No one will mind. To start your getaway in the Great Smokies, stay in one of these unique cabins. They vary in styles and sizes, with spacious lodges perfect for couples, lavish lodges for the edgy, and large lodges for big families.
