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

Start off your visit on the 21st (Sun): whizz through the canopy at Smoky Mountain Ziplines and then try for a hole-in-one at The Track. Keep things going the next day: take in nature's colorful creations at Parrot Mountain & Gardens and then whizz through the canopy at Wahoo Ziplines.
