There will never be a dull moment as you explore the area. Pigeon Forge is famous for being a playground that’s perfect for families, couples and groups visiting the Great Smoky Mountains.
Here are some of the lures it’s known for and why it makes such an incredible vacation destination!
Dollywood Theme Park is definitely one of the highlights of any vacation in the area. The most popular destination in Pigeon Forge began in 1961 as a western-themed attraction complete with a train ride. In 1986, Dolly Parton, a Sevier county native and country music superstar, joined with the park’s owners to update the theme of the park to more closely reflect Smoky Mountain heritage. Dollywood is now a world-class theme park with roller coasters, water slides and thrill rides.
Pigeon Forge is a short drive from Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the most-visited park in the U.S. In 2014, over 10 million visitors traveled to see the views, wildlife and historic homesteads. Its 800 square miles of protected wilderness include 900 miles of hiking trails. Bonus: There’s no entrance fee!
Love to shop or just browse? Mountain Mile & Tower Shops is one of the most dynamic and new developments to open in town. Its 174 acres boast a 180,000-square-foot multi-purpose retail, dining and family-entertainment complex.
Car shows and expos stand out as some of Pigeon Forge’s iconic and enduring features. The dozens of shows and roundups include a wide variety of makes and models. The Spring Grand Rod Run, the Fall Grand Rod Run and the Shades of the Past Car Show are the granddaddy of car events that truly leave their mark!
