3 Reasons Pigeon Forge is the Perfect Place to Spend Fall Break


Although it seems like school just started, fall break will be here in just a few short weeks. Now is the time to gather the family together and start making plans for a fall getaway. Let Pigeon Forge be at the top of those family vacation ideas!! The beauty of the fall season makes it the perfect time to visit and experience the Smoky Mountains at their finest. Your family will enjoy the break and be ready to push forward until the next one.

Here are 3 reasons why Pigeon Forge is the perfect place to spend your fall break:

1. Fall foliage in Pigeon Forge should be in peak season by mid-to-late October.

These rich fall colors are so welcoming and refreshing. Take a deep breath and feel the excitement of fall as you soak in this beauty maybe during an afternoon drive or maybe during a hike up in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. You will not have to look far to capture these sights and have all the feels of fall.

2. Pigeon Forge attractions are second to none.

Dollywood FallThere is something for everyone, from kids to adults. Let your mind slip away as you laugh and have fun with your family at Dollywood. Ride the roller coasters or sit back and clap for the performers in the award winning shows, or best of all, gather together for some good ‘ole southern food at Aunt Granny’s All-You-Care-To-Eat Buffet. It will be a day packed with fun and family time.

If you don’t want to leave the Parkway, take the family for a good time at another of Pigeon Forge’s top attractions, WonderWorks. Spend hours wondering around in the museum, playing in the Bubble Lab and being challenged in the virtual sports or by the Mindball game.

Another fun Parkway attraction for the family is the Hollywood Wax Museum. Pretend you are with the Hollywood stars and snap lots of photos to send back home to make all of your friends jealous.

After you are done, walk up the hill and play in Hannah’s Maze of Mirrors, in the 5D Castle of Chaos, and in Outbreak with the zombies. There are quality attractions all around!

3. Pigeon Forge lodging options are readily available for whatever your family desires.

The Inn at Christmas PlaceIf you want the housekeeping service and breakfast amenities of a hotel, your family will love the Music Road Resort Hotel or the Inn at Christmas Place.

Want to experience the true mountain life, try a cabin or chalet at Eagle Ridge Resort or Old Mill Lodging.

Maybe your family wants to be adventurous and do a little camping, try out the facilities at Clabough’s Campground & RV Park or the Shady Oaks Campground.

If the “at home” feel is what you are looking for, try a condo at Whispering Pines Condominiums or Riverstone Resort and Spa. Whatever you choose, you are sure to find the perfect lodging spot for your family to rest and relax!


Make Pigeon Forge a part of your family’s fall break plans and experience fall for yourself!!
