Pigeon Forge

Pigeon Forge ©
A tiny town with big tourist appeal, Pigeon Forge bills itself as the "Center of Fun in the Smokies." Just a short drive from the national park protecting the diverse plant and animal life of the Great Smoky Mountains, the town features numerous places to visit, such as bars, restaurants, cafes, theaters, and shops.
Attractions like Dollywood and Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies make great kid-friendly stops. Venture out of the city with trips to Great Smoky Mountains National Park (Foothills Parkway Southwest Parking & Cades Cove). There's still lots to do: take in the waterfront at The Island in Pigeon Forge, see the interesting displays at Titanic Museum Attraction, take in panoramic vistas at Gatlinburg SkyLift Park, and kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks.

For where to stay, more things to do, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our Pigeon Forge vacation planner.
