If you're looking for the ideal conditions for enjoying our zip lines in the Smoky Mountains, you couldn't pick a better time of the year than right now. But if you're visiting the Smokies, we hope you also take some time to make the most of the national park itself. It's one of the most beautiful areas of the country, and it's free. You can't beat that.

Last week, we took an alphabetical look at just a few of the activities that national park visitors can enjoy. This week, we'll throw out a few more ideas for you to consider when planning your next trip to Tennessee's Smoky Mountains.

• Fishing – Match your skills against wily brook, brown and rainbow trout in more than 700 miles of fishable streams. Licenses are required.

• Hiking – The park has more than 800 miles of trails, from quiet walkways and nature walks to 5,000-foot-tall mountain peaks and multiday backpacking treks through the backcountry.

• Historic Buildings – Before the national park, these lands were privately owned. As such, the park has one of the best collections of log buildings in the eastern U.S. Nearly 80 historic structures, including barns, homes, churches, schools and mills, have been preserved for visitors.
