Autumn is finally here, and there is no place more beautiful to view the fall foliage than in the Smoky Mountains! But, how do you know the best time to travel and experience these fiery changes in hue? Thanks to SmokyMountains.com, you no longer have to guess when Mother Nature will reveal fall’s vibrant colors.

To stay ahead of the foliage frenzy, they’ve unveiled an interactive map for travelers to help predict the best places to visit in order to see the biggest burts, and when these colorful bursts will be at their peak. Obviously, there is no better place to experience the changing colors than in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park!

Located just minutes from the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, Dancing Bear Lodge is your Smoky Mountain basecamp and the ideal place to stay while leaf-peeping. The National Park, home to over 187,000 acres of Appalachian forest, includes miles of rivers, lakes, streams, wildlife habitats and more. There is no wonder as to why our gorgeous area is referred to as, “The Peaceful Side of the Smokies.”
