Peaceful Side of the Smokies
The quietest of the three main entrances to the World Heritage-listed national park encompassing part of the Great Smoky Mountains, Townsend is a low-key town. The village of just 400 residents houses a handful of affordable restaurants and motels and is much less commercialized than other cities in this area that cater to tourists. Home to various Native American tribes for thousands of years, Townsend offers visitors a chance to see the "Peaceful Side of the Smokies"--an area renowned for its staggeringly diverse plant and animal life. In addition to several shops catering to nature lovers and adventure-seekers, the city contains a heritage center dedicated to preserving various aspects of the region's rich Appalachian history and culture.
