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.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Oconaluftee River Trail as well as Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Visiting Ijams Nature Center and Zipline will get you outdoors. Get some historical perspective at Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site and Old Forge Distillery. Get out of town with these interesting Pigeon Forge side-trips: Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. Tours & Tastings (in Mills River) and Clingmans Dome (in Great Smoky Mountains National Park). The adventure continues: take in the dramatic natural features at Chimney Tops Trail, take in the exciting artwork at The Twisted Vessel, make a splash at Outdoor Gravity Park, and do a tasting at Mill Bridge Winery.
