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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Fowler's Clay Works and The Old Mill Candy Kitchen. Take a break from the city and head to Roaring Fork and Quiet Walkways. Explore Pigeon Forge's surroundings by going to River Rafting & Tubing (in Hartford) and Ramsey Cascades (in Great Smoky Mountains National Park). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 23rd (Thu) at Dollywood. And it doesn't end there: brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Sugarlands Distilling Company, do a tasting at Tennessee Homemade Wines, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount LeConte.
