If hitting the “hot spots” of western North Carolina and eastern Tennessee is on your agenda, this ride is what you want. Travel from Asheville through Hot Springs, Gatlinburg, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and Cherokee, then round out the day with a drive through Maggie Valley. A two-lane ribbon of asphalt will twist you seamlessly from the bright lights of a tourist town into the National Park’s deep wooded forest—and back. There is much to see and do on this ride, but you can elect to take in only the scenery and spectacle of it all; you are in charge. Points of interest: The hot springs of Hot Springs, the scenic overlook near Hot Springs, the sights and sounds of Gatlinburg (including an aquarium, Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort, Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum and hundreds of shops), the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the history and splendor of Cherokee (the Museum of the Cherokee Indian, many shops, and Harrah’s Casino), Maggie Valley’s amusements and shops (like the Ghost Town amusement park and lots of other attractions).
