Pigeon Forge

Center of Fun in the Smokies

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.
You've now added Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster to your itinerary. Escape the urban bustle at Bluff Mountain Adventures and Gatlinburg Scenic Overlook. Bring the kids along to Paula Deen's Lumberjack Feud and Tomb Egyptian Adventure. There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Floyd Garrett's Muscle Car Museum, get your game on at MagiQuest, find something for the whole family at Pigeon Forge Snow, and make a splash at Outdoor Gravity Park.
