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.
Explore Pigeon Forge's surroundings by going to Great Smoky Mountains National Park (Rockefeller Memorial, Ramsey Cascades, & more) and Great Smoky Mountains National Park (in Gatlinburg). The adventure continues: find something for the whole family at Dollywood, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies, and take in nature's colorful creations at Parrot Mountain & Gardens.
