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.
Start off your visit on the 17th (Sat): get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies, sample the fine beverages at Sugarlands Distilling Company, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Ole Smoky, sample the fine beverages at Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine, then identify plant and animal life at Roaring Fork, and finally find something for the whole family at Rocky Top Mountain Coaster. Here are some ideas for day two: cool off at Dollywood.

For photos, ratings, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Pigeon Forge trip itinerary builder website.
