While you can see these stunning wildflowers virtually anywhere in the park, some of the best places for wildflower hikes include the Porters Creek Trail, Schoolhouse Gap Trail and the Little River Trail.

The event also features a spectacular kaleidoscope in the sky in the form of hundreds of umbrellas that float high above the park’s Showstreet!
3. Attend a Car Show
