On your vacation to the Great Smoky Mountains, it’s always great to stop in at a visitor center to learn a little bit about the area and pick up a few souvenirs. A very popular visitor center in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is Sugarlands Visitor Center, and there’s good reason for that! There’s so much to do at Sugarlands, it’s practically an attraction in itself. Keep reading to learn about it:

Did you know that the Great Smoky Mountains is one of the few places in the country where visitors can enjoy fly-fishing all year long? That’s right. Where in other parts of the country the water gets too cold or icy to have an enjoyable fishing experience, in the Smokies, Wears Valley in particular, anglers can enjoy a relaxing day well into the heart of the winter season.

How cold is too cold? When planning a winter hike in the Smoky Mountains, the most important questions everyone asks is, “what will the temperatures be like?” The last thing you want when hiking in cooler weather is to learn that you did not wear enough layers to keep yourself warm. Not to mention, being uncomfortable or cold during your hike can take away from your ability to appreciate the natural beauty of the area this time of year.

Wears Valley TN is known as one of the quieter sides of the Smoky Mountains. Unlike Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, this is where families and guests come when they are looking for a peaceful and relaxing place to stay. However, just because it doesn’t seem as if there is as much excitement found there, Wears Valley is not without its own surprises.

With winter just around the corner, it may be time for you and your family to begin planning which cold-weather adventures you want to take this year. Sure, you can always spend the day navigating your way through the hustle and bustle of Pigeon Forge and downtown Gatlinburg, but why not try something different this year?
