The Great Smoky Mountains Parkway
The GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAINS PARKWAY starts at I-40 - Exit 407, and runs to the end of Gatlinburg. G.S.M.P. encompasses quite a few different roads including: Hwy. 66, Forks Of The River Parkway, the Parkway in BOTH Sevierville & Pigeon Forge, then the connecting road that runs approximate 5 miles between Pigeon Forge & Gatlinburg commonly referred to as the Spur or Foothills Parkway, and then the Gatlinburg Parkway.
If you reset your odometer at I-40 - Exit 407 (the red star near the top of the picture to the left), it's very easy to find ANY business along the GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAINS PARKWAY. Example: If you were looking for the new Ripley's Aquarium...you would just travel to odometer reading GSMP=21.71 miles! Its easy to see how many vacationers got confused searching for such and such "Parkway" address, while looking in the wrong city! The maps on this virtual site will take you to EVERY main attraction, restaurant, shopping mall, etc. You can "zoom in" anywhere along the GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAINS PARKWAY, and see the actual area where your point of interest is located, and even take a VIRTUAL TOUR through many of these locations!
