Just inside the park South of Gatlinburg going towards Cherokee, NC, take a right at the visitors center. The ride to Townsend is very senic. On the North side if Townsend pick up the Foothills Pkwy all the way to the North end of the Dragon. Head over to Cherokee and Maggie Valley and take in some of the Blue Ridge Pkwy. Have fun and be safe.

Waterfalls... south on 28 towards Franklin are several nice falls, including Bridal Falls which you can drive/ride under. You can loop back on Wayah Road (starts off of 64 just west of Franklin), Wayah is a great ride road that's VERY lightly traveled.
Congrats on the upcoming event!

From Maggie Valley take a trip over to Waynesville and get on 276 south towards Brevard. Nice road that goes over the Parkway and then down past some falls and Sliding Rock.

FYI, both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge will be CROWDED during this time period, so expect traffic and delays.

You can use 32, 339 (Foothills Pkwy), 73 or 32 in that order heading North on I-40. All of them connect up with 321 and end up about mid way through Gatlinburg. On the South side I would take 276 South from I-40 to 19 West through Maggie Valley. Then pick up the Blueridge Pkwy and you will end up on the North side of Cherokee. Then 441 through the park to Gatlinburg. Have a safe trip and I this helps.:)

You dropped that little fact about getting married into your post and it almost went right by me.

Congratulations. My regards to you and new Mrs.
