Fall color as far as the eye can see

Smokies are great, but there are beautiful, less-crowded options

At some pivotal moment around the beginning of September, we start watching the trees. Is that leaf starting to get a tinge of yellow? Maybe a bit of red on the outer edges? Ah, fall. It’s the season some consider the best of the year. The air cools, the sky becomes a more vibrant blue and, blessedly, the trees start putting on the show of the year.

Special events share spotlight with changing leaves

October provides many opportunities to combine leaf gazing with related activities to round out the experience. The three cities at the gateway to the Smokies – Sevierville, Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge – are particularly super charged since fall is one of the most popular tourist seasons.
