Top 10 Things to See and do at the Smoky Mountains ...

I love to travel with my family. In my opinion, it is important to take your children out to see as much of the world as possible. Of all of the places we have been, however, my family's favorite vacation destination remains the Great Smoky Mountains. In fact, it is the only vacation spot we have returned to time and again. So far, we have been there a total of three times as a family, and these are some of our favorite sites to see.

10. Clingman's Dome

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Clingman's Dome isn't open throughout the year because the road leading to it is closed during the winter and early spring. The walk to the dome is a paved 1/2 mile walk, but it is straight uphill and is quite tough. Nonetheless, we made the trek twice (once when my twins were only 2 years old), so it is possible to reach the top! The trip is definitely worth it, as you can see from the picture. This is from our October trip and is a view from inside the dome.
