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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Biltmore and Ariel Gallery. Get outdoors at Rocking Chair Farm and Zipline. Get out of town with these interesting Pigeon Forge side-trips: Asheville (Woolworth Walk, St.Claire Art, &more) and Bush's Beans Visitor Center (in Chestnut Hill). And it doesn't end there: learn about winemaking at Tennessee Homemade Wines, sample the fine beverages at Ole Smoky, view the masterpieces at Fowler's Clay Works, and shop like a local with Alewine Pottery.

For other places to visit, ratings, photos, and more tourist information, use the Pigeon Forge trip maker website.
