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 inner history buff will appreciate Grovewood Village and Thomas Wolfe Memorial. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Museum of Appalachia and Museum of the Cherokee Indian. Get out of town with these interesting Pigeon Forge side-trips: Asheville (Lexington Glassworks, Southern Highland Craft Guild Folk Art Center, & more), Mountain Farm Museum (in Cherokee) and Wheels Through Time Transportation Museum (in Maggie Valley). There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site, view the masterpieces at Great Smoky Arts and Crafts Community, have some family-friendly fun at 7D Dark Ride Adventure, and examine the collection at Alcatraz East Crime Museum.
