A tiny town with big tourist appeal, Pigeon Forge bills itself as the "Center of Fun in the Smokies."

Bring the kids along to Dollywood and Titanic Museum Attraction. Take a break from Pigeon Forge with a short trip to Cades Cove in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, about 1h 05 min away. And it doesn't end there: find something for the whole family at The Island in Pigeon Forge, experience the excitement of Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster, get your game on at The Escape Game Pigeon Forge, and sample the fine beverages at Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine.
