Hopefully, you'll find some time to visit Great Smoky Mountains National Park on your next trip to East Tennessee. Spread out across two different states, the park offers a beautiful and scenic way to enjoy some of your favorite outdoor activities, including fishing, camping, swimming, biking and touring historic sites.
This has been a big topic in the news around here lately. Saying, “Don't feed the bears” has almost become a cliché in our culture, but it's based in fact, and the consequences of giving human food to wild bears can be tragic. Just this past week, a mother bear and two of her yearling cubs had to be euthanized by national park officials because park visitors encroached on the animals' territory and fed them. It's really a shame when humans disobey the rules, and the bears are the ones that have to pay for it.
Who's Ole Red, you may be asking? It's not so much a question of “who” as it is “what.” When it makes its debut in Gatlinburg next year, Ole Red will be a $9 million entertainment venue presented by Grand Ole Opry member Blake Shelton in conjunction with Ryman Hospitality Properties, Inc.
We definitely want you to spend some time with us at Smoky Mountain Ziplines on your next trip to East Tennessee. But chances are you're going to be in town for at least a few days, and that's a lot of time to fill. So at some point, you'll need to come up with other ways to enjoy yourselves besides whooping it up on our ziplines in Gatlinburg.
We can all agree that vacations are fun. Whether you're traveling with your kids, heading out on a romantic getaway with your significant other or just exploring the mountains on your own, spending time in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee is an experience you'll remember for the rest of your life.
