Visitors to the Smokies about the same as last year

So far this year, the number of visitors to the Smokies is about the same as this time last year.  According to the article below, about 54 more people have visited since this time last year.  Considering last year more visitors visited since 2000, that means the Smoky Mountains are extremely popular.  With the economy in the tank, the fact that the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is free probably means many people are vacationing there to keep vacationing.  I think that’s a great thing.  There is usually something good in everything if you look hard enough.  While the economy may be tanking, just think of the people who will learn more about the Smokies because of that.  My guess is, many of those folks will be back for years to come.
