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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like The Old Mill and Walker Sisters' Cabin. Escape the urban bustle at Roaring Fork and Noah Bud Ogle Cabin. Step out of Pigeon Forge with an excursion to Chimney Tops in Great Smoky Mountains National Park--about 30 minutes away. There's more to do: admire the verdant scenery at Cades Cove and brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine.
