We are planning to drive from Toronto, Canada to GSMNP for family vacation next month. Couple of questions:
1.We will have 10 days in total, how many days do people averagely need to visit the park? Since driving to and back might take 2-3 days, it remains 7 days, is it enough to see around the park completely?
2. We won't camping inside the park, so which town shall we stay for a easy commute everyday to the national park, Pigeon Forge Townsend Or Gatlinburg?
3. Along this trip, we'd like to visit Nashville. Is one day time enough?
4.We have 2 kids at age of 7 and 13. We would like do hiking, horse back riding, but not rafting. Are there any other activities
in the park or town suitable for kids?
5. Also, please suggest any must-see stops on our way to and back from GSMNP.
Thank you for your time and response, really appreciated.
