Visit the Neighboring Smoky Mountains

The Smoky Mountain Tourism Development Authority's efforts are directed toward attracting appropriate tourism business to the area, providing authentic experiences for the traveling public and being a good neighbor to Great Smoky Mountains National Park.  Through the operation of welcome centers, SMTDA informs tourists of accommodations and attractions and works with local businesses, travel writers, travel agents and tour operators. The Tourism Authority works with the Chamber and Industrial Board and is wholly funded by the county’s hotel/motel tax.
