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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Arcade City and Outdoor Gravity Park. Step out of the city life by going to River Rafting & Tubing and Zipline. Next up on the itinerary: have some family-friendly fun at Old Time Photo Number 5, sample the fine beverages at Tennessee Shine Company, indulge your taste buds at Old Forge Distillery, and do a tasting at Mill Bridge Winery.
