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.
Head to Ole Smoky Candy Kitchen at The Village and Tanger Outlets Seviervillefor some retail therapy. Explore hidden gems such as Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail and Sugarland Cellars. Get out of town with these interesting Pigeon Forge side-trips: Bush's Visitor Center (in Chestnut Hill) and Forbidden Caverns (in Sevierville). There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Grotto Falls Parking, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Ole Smoky Whiskey Barrelhouse, contemplate the long history of Old Forge Distillery, and head outdoors with Outdoor Activities.

The Volunteer State
Divided by law, geography, and custom into three major regions, represented by the three stars on state's flag, Tennessee boasts a distinctive musical heritage that includes elements of bluegrass, country-western, and blues. With a countryside as diverse as its people, Tennessee includes landscapes ranging from a mountainous region in the east to the lowlands of the west, with gently rolling hills in the middle. For a well-rounded vacation, you can hike remote mountain trails in the morning and explore the crowded bars of Nashville in the evening. Visit the urban attractions, such as Elvis Presley's former residence in Memphis, but don't miss a chance to spend some time in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, situated in the eastern part of the state.
