The Tennessee Department of Tourism recently launched a new website to highlight the exceptional hiking, fishing, camping, and hunting that Tennessee is famous for. Also, in an effort to promote Tennessee tourism, the website is featuring several contests that provide visitors the opportunity to win a wide range of prizes.
“Tennessee is one of the most beautiful states in the country,” said David Angotti, a travel expert and the managing member of Smoky Mountain Cabin Rental. “Due to the limitless outdoor activities the Smoky Mountains National Park has to offer visitors, our cabin rental company has seen a considerable increase in the number of reservations this spring. The 500,000 acre Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which currently attracts over nine million visitors per year, is the most visited national park in the country.”
The Smoky Mountains National Park offers visitors an incredible array of outdoor hiking activities to choose from. The park has over 800 miles of maintained hiking trails providing options ranging from very advanced to easy paved trails. For the extreme outdoor enthusiast, the 284 mile long Appalachian Trail, which traverses the Smoky Mountains along Tennessee’s Eastern border, is one of the most challenging hiking trails in the country and takes careful planning and months to complete. One of the National Park’s most popular hikes is the Laurel Falls Trail. The Laurel Fall hike is an easy 1.3 mile that only requires takes about 90 minutes round-trip. The hike, which is suitable for strollers, is classified easy-to-moderate and provides amazing views of waterfalls and the mountains.
Another popular option, which is both stroller and wheelchair accessible, is the Clingmans Dome hiking trail. The half-mile paved trail normally takes people between 15 and 30 minutes to hike and provides some of the most amazing views of the Smoky Mountains National Park!
In addition to hiking and camping, many visitors choose to enjoy other outdoor activities such as: whitewater rafting, tubing, horseback riding, zipline tours, and the many outdoor activities that East Tennessee is famous for. However, for those who would rather enjoy scenery from the comfort of their cars, the Smoky Mountains National Park and East Tennessee also offers visitors some of the most scenic drives in the country.
While the marketing initiative is primarily focused on further developing Tennessee’s outdoor tourism, the promotion is also expected to increase the sales of the Gatlinburg aquarium, the new Titanic Museum, several other indoor Smoky Mountain attractions, and area restaurants.
