What people are saying about Smoky Mountains

Without this app, we would not have had the information about the site or spot and would have bypassed sites by just driving by. It kept the kids amused and informed as well. It made for good conversation along the way in our vehicle!

give your self time to set it up and allow it to synch. i put it on apple play and the entire vehicle enjoyed the history and guidance. excellent. program. It triggers when you reach a key point and is very informative.
