CBS News ranks every National Park in the US by Popularity

Guess where the Great Smoky Mountains ended up on CBS’s list of most popular National Parks?


The Smokies continue to be the most visited National Park.

“America’s most visited national park, Great Smoky Mountains straddles Tennessee and North Carolina, and features everything from mountains and waterfalls to hiking trails and historical attractions. Most visitors enter the park through Sevier County, Tennessee, and while there, many make a stop at Dollywood. Dolly Parton’s theme park draws 3 million people every year, and its success goes hand in hand with the success of the park.”

This comes with other perks too, not only did Sevierville land on FortuneBuilders Best Places to Buy Vacation Rental Property in 2020 so did Gatlinburg!
