Pigeon Forge — 3 nights

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.
Shop till you drop at Fowler's Clay Works and The Old Mill Candy Kitchen. Visiting Roaring Fork and Ramsey Cascades will get you outdoors. Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 23rd (Thu) at Dollywood. Next up on the itinerary: brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Sugarlands Distilling Company, do a tasting at Tennessee Homemade Wines, take in the awesome beauty at Mount LeConte, and look for all kinds of wild species at Quiet Walkways.
