Great Smoky Mountains: Asheville or Bryson City?

Jump to last reply

My family and I will be visiting the Smokies in late October and we're trying to decide on a place to stay. We've found beautiful cabins in both Asheville and Bryson City, but don't know which city will fit our needs the most. It will be me, my husband, our 18 month old, my parents, and my mother in law. Let's see, what else might be determining factors...we'll be there for three nights, my mother loves to cook so we'll probably eat in most nights, but we'll probably want to go out to eat once or twice. My husband and I live in NC, but our parents are visiting from California so we want to make the most of the short time we have. Is Clingman's Dome a must-see? Any suggestions re: where to stay, what to see, what to eat, anything would be appreciated. Thanks!
