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.
Get out of town with these interesting Pigeon Forge side-trips: Great Smoky Mountains National Park (Upper Tremont Road in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Cades Cove, & more) and Great Smoky Mountains National Park (in Gatlinburg). There's still lots to do: cool off at Dollywood, see the interesting displays at Titanic Museum Attraction, take in nature's colorful creations at Parrot Mountain & Gardens, and sample the fine beverages at Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine.
