Great Smoky Mountains National Park Wedding Inspiration

Do you believe in the idea that each person has a soulmate? And when you find yours, you are complete. Like there was a missing link, and then it’s whole.

For 52 years, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park had a missing link on the Foothills Parkway. A 1.65-mile gap of unfinished road that was supposed to connect Walland to Wears Valley, but because the terrain was so treacherous, it wasn’t able to be completed.

However, like any good love story with a few twists and turns, there is a happy ending. With recent technological advances and federal funding, the “missing link” was completed in November. Now, the pieces of the Foothills Parkway fit together perfectly, and park visitors can feel like they’re driving above the clouds.
