How can you pick just one? Both the Tennessee and North Carolina sides of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park have so much to offer. The main draw on the Tennessee side is Gatlinburg, first settled in 1803. North Carolina is also home to Clingmans Dome, the highest point in the Smokies.
The Great Smokies has some of the most amazing natural wonders, including the Arch Rock, Rainbow Falls, Clingman's Dome towers, and more.
Although both of these parks are in Utah, they offer very different experiences! Choosing which one you should visit depends on what you are looking for. While Bryce offers stunning views of hoodoos, taking an Arches park tour will bring you close to the iconic natural arches.
Arches National Park has over 2,000 arches that began their stories about 65 million years ago. Traveling through that kind of landscape is undoubtedly awe-inspiring, but it can be a little intimidating to figure out where to go. That’s where a self-guided tour steps in.
If you’re looking to unplug, and enjoy the beauty of nature, Kauai is the island for you. It is less built up than Maui is and is a fantastic place for travelers preferring a more low-key trip. Things to do in Kauai range from hiking to tours and dining out, much like Maui.
The Grand Canyon's popular South Rim is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. But not all of the park's facilities will be open all the time. For instance, the Yavapai Geology Museum is open year-round, but the Desert View Campground is only open from late April to mid-October.
