Episode 39 – 7 Sections of the Smokies, Park Vista Hotel, and Listener Feedback

In Episode 39 of Smoky Mountains Radio, we go around the park to familiarize you with the 7 different sections of the Smokies, review the Park Vista Hotel in Gatlinburg, and answer your listener questions.


7 Areas of the Smokies

Gatlinburg/Newfound Gap, Cades Cove/Townsend, Greenbrier, Cosby/Big Creek, Cherokee/Deep Creek, Cataloochee/Balsam Mountain, and Fontana.  I suggest that you sit down with a map of the Smokies and follow along throughout the show.  We will start at Cades Cove/Townsend and make our way counter-clockwise around the entire park.  Check out the show for all the details.


Park Vista Hotel

The Park Vista Hotel in Gatlinburg is huge in Gatlinburg standards.  It has 15 floors, 300 rooms, two restaurants, indoor and outdoor pools, fitness center, 25,000 feet of convention space, and a ton more.  It is perfect for the traveler that wants to spend their days among the chaos of the towns, but get away from it at night.  It is also perfect for the hiker since it is only a few steps to the national park from the hotel.  Want all the pros and cons?  Listen to segment two of this week’s show.
