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 cultural itinerary includes sights like The Old Mill and Little Greenbrier School. Step out of the city life by going to Mount LeConte and Quiet Walkways.

There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Roaring Fork, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Sugarlands Distilling Company, and steep yourself in history at Walker Sisters' Cabin.
