Great Smoky Mountains National Park
Franklin D. Roosevelt established Great Smoky Mountains National Park on September 2, 1940. He dedicated the park “for the permanent enjoyment of the people.” And boy have the people enjoyed it, as Great Smoky Mountains is by far the most-visited national park in the United States. In 2022 alone, 12.94 million people visited this park, beating the Grand Canyon (2nd most-visited national park) by over 8 million visitors.
So, what makes the Smoky Mountains so enticing? One factor is that this mountain range is among the most biodiverse areas in the US. There are approximately 65 mammal species, over 200 types of birds, 67 native fish species, more than 80 types of reptiles and amphibians, and over 1,600 flowering plants. Even if you somehow miss all that flora and fauna, you still have the magnificent overlooks and captivating waterfalls to find strewn across the park.
With all that scenery plus the countless activities you can do in the park, it’s easy to understand why millions upon millions of people choose to vacation at the Smoky Mountains.
Sevierville Vacation Rentals
The city of Sevierville is located approximately 20 miles north of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Of our new locations in Tennessee near the Smoky Mountains, this is the largest city with a population of over 18,600 people. Within Sevierville, you’ll find plenty of great shopping and dining as well as many exciting attractions to visit.
If you’re looking for outdoorsy things to do, Sevierville has much more to offer than just close access to the Smoky Mountains.

Although Pigeon Forge hosts a third of the population of Sevierville, you’ll still find it’s home to just as many exciting attractions and things to do during your stay.
Probably the most popular thing to do at Pigeon Forge, especially for families, is to spend a day at the Dollywood.
