Tennessee is a quieter, less-traveled town adjacent
to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Cosby
allows access to the Park via one of five of the
major entrances to the Park facilities.
Besides the Park entrance, Cosby is best known for its
richly textured past--moonshiners and cock-fighting.
Cosby is a little tamer these days and offers travelers
a full range of lodging accommodations, independently-owned
restaurants and small motels and motor inns. There
are evn a few bed and breakfast inns.
Cosby TN also offers a route to Gatlinburg
TN and beyond to Pigeon Forge that might save you
substantial driving time to your ultimate Smoky Mountains
destination. While this route is a little farther,
you will be pleased by time saved during July-August
and October when tourist traffic is very frustrating.
This route is as follows:
From Interstate-40, exit at 440 or 443 – then take Hwy 321 approximately
20 miles--it will turn into East Parkway--towards
Gatlinburg TN and continue straight on Hwy
