It’s that time of year again when you can feel the change in the air. The humidity is dropping, the cooler temperatures are welcomed, and the leaves are starting to change color with every blink of the eye. If you are on the prowl to see some of the best Fall Foliage in the country, then look no further than the Great Smoky Mountains! Take a step back in time as your travel through small Appalachian towns and maybe stop for a swig of that good old Smoky Mountain moonshine. You cannot really go wrong when picking a spot in this region to view the colorful array of leaves, but here are a few of our favorite Fall locations in the Smoky’s. So round up the family and your favorite warm wool blankets and plan your next Autumn trip to the mountains:
Nestled in the foothills of the Smoky’s is this beautiful, historic town that full of vibrant shops and activities for the whole family to enjoy. There is an assortment of Fall festivals, great food, and special events that make for a great experience. Whether you rent a hotel in town or a cabin in the nearby mountains, you are bound to be taken away by the beauty of the foliage in this area. A cabin rental tucked in the mountains will provide you with plenty of stargazing at night. Take your Stargazer gray and yellow wool blanket with you and relax as the cozy up near the campfire and let the twinkle of the stars consume you.
Camping within the National Park
Book your camping spot months in advance to beat the crowds who flock to Smoky Mountain National Park to view the Fall foliage. Pack a gray wool blanket, black and white plaid wool blanket, or one of our other cozy merino wool blankets for your National Park camping adventure. They will come in handy in the RV, tent, or while hiking when you take a rest to admire the scenery.
Looking for an unforgettable Fall Foliage experience? Book a helicopter ride taking you over the majestic Smoky’s. It gets quite cool at high altitudes so be prepared by bringing a heavy wool blanket or two to snuggle up with. You’ll be glad you did!
