Center of Fun in the Smokies

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. Named after an iron forge built around 1820, the town remained an isolated mountain hamlet until the 1980s, when the local government initiated an economic plan centered on theme parks, outlet malls, and live music venues. Today, one of the attractions that draws the majority of visitors is a sprawling amusement park named after and owned by entertainer Dolly Parton. Pigeon Forge is in Sevier County.
