The Smokies are one of the best spots to find new interesting cuisines. The first thing that you should try is the foraging meals in which you forage in the local woods. The forage is then used by an expert chef to create a dish that is unique each time. It makes for a great activity as well as an interesting meal. If you’re looking for something a little more casual, then you can enjoy the multitude of restaurants and food bars which exist in the local towns.
The drink industry is something that cannot be ignored either. The Smoky Mountains contain many local brewers and winemakers which produce their local flavor throughout the year. You can plan a whole tour in which you sample the local flavor either at mountainside cafes or at the distilleries themselves.
