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.
Step out of the city life by going to Roaring Fork and Chimney Tops Trail. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Pigeon Forge: Ramsey Cascades (in Great Smoky Mountains National Park) and River Rafting & Tubing (in Hartford). Next up on the itinerary: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount LeConte, whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, hike along Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail, and stroll through Alum Cave Trail.

To see where to stay, maps, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the Pigeon Forge trip itinerary builder tool .

Newark to Pigeon Forge is an approximately 8.5-hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. In July, daily temperatures in Pigeon Forge can reach 87°F, while at night they dip to 69°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Fri) to allow enough time to drive to Ocoee.
