Without a doubt, every town in the Smokies has its own unique offerings that make it worthwhile to visit. This week, we'll take a closer look at Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, which lies halfway between Sevierville and Gatlinburg when traveling toward Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Pigeon Forge, of course, is home to Dollywood theme park, which is just a few miles off the Parkway, but much of what you would want to experience in Pigeon Forge can be found either directly on the Parkway-which runs the length of town-or just a block or two off the road.
There are dozens of attractions, including a variety of music theaters (like Comedy Barn and Dolly Parton's Stampede), unique experience-oriented museums like WonderWorks, and the historical Titanic museum attraction. Also look for adventurous activities like ziplines, ATV rides and the downhill fun of sorbing at Outdoor Gravity Park. Filling in the gaps are all kinds go-cart tracks, arcades, miniature golf courses and family-center-style rides and amusements.
Pigeon Forge is also known for its shopping. The town is home to multiple outlet malls and dozens of independently owned shops and destinations offering a cornucopia of retail bounty. The historic Old Mill complex in particular is a popular visitor stop. Rounding out the town's offerings is an eclectic array of restaurants and diverse lodgings that range from hotels, motels and condos to cabins and bed and breakfast inns.
