Locations of ‘color-blind’ viewfinders across Tennessee

Tennessee Tourism has added more viewfinders designed for color-blind users across the state.

By installing the special viewfinders, the Tennessee Department of Tourist Development has created an opportunity for the millions of Americans afflicted by red-green color blindness or color vision deficiency to see the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains at the peak of the fall foliage season, according to a release.

The color-blind accessible viewfinders are now installed at the following locations across Tennessee (click the links below to access the location of each viewfinder):
