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.
Appreciate the collections at Titanic Museum Attraction and Biltmore. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Dollywood and The Escape Game Pigeon Forge. Get out of town with these interesting Pigeon Forge side-trips: Great Smoky Mountains National Park (Cades Cove, Rockefeller Memorial, & more). There's much more to do: find something for the whole family at The Island in Pigeon Forge, whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, catch some excitement at Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster, and get your game on at Old Time Photo Number 5.
