Summer vacation is a time of relaxation for parents and kids, but it can be difficult to relax when you’re stuck in a traffic jam or surrounded by a crowd. For those dreaming of a vacation away from every distraction, Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge have a variety of popular attractions along with peaceful escapes in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

One of the best things to do in the Smoky Mountains during the summer is take a mountain drive. Though some areas of the National Park can be congested during the summer months, the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail is a serene getaway for vacationing families searching for a slow, winding trip through the country.

The one way loop is six miles of rushing streams, historic log cabins and blooming forests. Named after one of the largest flowing streams in the mountains, Roaring Fork’s peaceful surroundings and secluded location are things the entire family can enjoy.
