A delicious way to kick off your Valentine’s Day is with a trip to one of Pigeon Forge’s local confectionaries. A visit to The Old Mill Candy Kitchen will often leave us with a delectable assortment of hand-dipped chocolates and a slice of Peanut Butter Fudge. The kids will be enamored being able to watch the candy-making process right before their eyes. Then when they pick out their special sweet treat it is guaranteed to be love at first bite.


  1. Cozy Up in a Pigeon Forge Cabin
