Pigeon Forge

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.
Bring the kids along to River Rafting & Tubing and The Coaster at Goats on the Roof. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Clingmans Dome and Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail. Explore Pigeon Forge's surroundings by going to Old Tennessee Distilling (in Kodak), Bush's Beans Visitor Center (in Chestnut Hill) and Great Smoky Mountains National Park (Mount LeConte, Newfound Gap Road, &more). There's much more to do: cool off at Outdoor Gravity Park, putt your heart out at Hillbilly Golf, Head underground at Forbidden Caverns, and identify plant and animal life at Roaring Fork.
