We're smack in the middle of peak fall foliage time here in the Great Smoky Mountains, and there's no doubt that if you're visiting this week, you'll want to get the best views of the leaves. But just as there's more than one way to skin a cat, there's more than one way to gain a little perspective when it comes to fall color watching.
One popular method is to just get in the car and drive. Following Newfound Gap Rd. through the national park exposes you to sweeping multihued mountains vistas. So does driving along the Foothills Parkway. You could also get a true bird's-eye view of things by taking a helicopter ride high above the Smokies in all their splendor.
A little closer to earth, you could visit an attraction like the Ober Gatlinburg Arial Tramway, which serves up some memorable scenery as you climb your way up to the ski resort, or you could ride to the top of the Gatlinburg Space Needle and take in its 360-degree views of the color show.
Of course, we also recommend spending a few hours with us at our Pigeon Forge zip line attraction. We're a little more down to earth, but we still offer a unique vantage point of the area's beauty as you zoom along our ziplines high above the ground, with nothing between you and the foliage but the cool fall air.
