"Townsend, TN in the Smoky Mountains" Townsend by SwitzIt

Townsend Travel Guide: 31 reviews and 54 photos

Although I live in Knoxville, I spend a lot of time in Townsend, TN, " the peaceful side of the Smokies." Unlike Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, Townsend is a charming, quiet destination, where one can truly enjoy the natural beauty and wonders of the mountains. Townsend is right at the entrance to the Smokies and close to Cades Cove and other natural attractions and activities, such as hiking, backpacking, fishing, horseback riding, etc. There is not much information on VT about the Smokies, so if you have any questions about the Townsend area, feel free to contact me.
