Visit The Smokies Every Season
Adventures During Every Season
There are plenty of things to do and see when you visit the Smoky Mountains at any time of year. Visitors enjoy springtime in the Smokies with warming temperatures and local flora starting to bloom all around. Summer is a popular time to visit the Great Smoky Mountains because the sun shines long into the evening, and the fireflies even put on a synchronized show in early June. Autumn is another great time to experience the Great Smoky Mountains as the fall foliage starts to turn in October and November—the mountain slopes change to stunning shades of gold, yellow, orange and red as the leaves signal the next season to come. Visitors in the winter often enjoy exploring local nearby towns like Sevierville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg to experience the beauty and wonder that come with a fresh blanket of snow. The Great Smoky Mountains are home to a number of outdoor festivals, shows and family entertainment options, drawing visitors from all over the world every season.
