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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Dollywood, Pigeon Forge Factory Outlet and The Comedy Barn. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail and Clingmans Dome. Explore Pigeon Forge's surroundings by going to Great Smoky Mountains National Park (Ramsey Cascades & Newfound Gap Road) and Tom Branch Falls (in Great Smoky Mountains National Park). There's lots more to do: hike along Grotto Falls Parking, try for a hole-in-one at Ripley's Davy Crockett Mini Golf, take in the dramatic scenery at Laurel Falls, and explore and take pictures at Gatlinburg Scenic Overlook.
