For decades, Sevierville, TN, was the often-overlooked stepchild of Smoky Mountain tourism. Gatlinburg had been a tourist destination since the 1930s and '40s, and since the World's Fair of 1982, Pigeon Forge had been coming on strong. But in recent decades, Sevierville has made up for lost time and joined its fellow Sevier County cities as a destination in its own right.
Sevierville has an ever-growing number of attractions. Starting at exit 407 on Interstate 40, there's Smokies Park, home to the Southern League Double-A Tennessee Smokies baseball team, which plays some 70 home games at the park each season. Along Tennessee Hwy. 66 headed toward downtown, you'll find Smoky Mountain Knifeworks and Scenic Helicopter Tours.
If you head east on Dolly Parton Parkway, you'll see the Tennessee Museum of Aviation, the Deer Farm Petting Zoo and Riding Stables, and the underground wonders of Forbidden Caverns. River Romp Tubing offers river excursions along Pittman Center Road.
In and around the Governor's Crossing development is the highest concentration of Sevierville, Tennessee, attractions, including NASCAR SpeedPark, Adventure Ziplines of Sevierville, Rainforest Adventures Discovery Zoo, and Five Oaks Riding Stables. There's so much more to explore. Come visit soon!
