Pigeon Forge is known as the Center of Fun in the Smokies for many reasons. It’s a drivable destination from many cities, and filled with Southern hospitality. Family-friendly fun can be found from the beginning of the Parkway, all the way down its five-mile stretch and beyond. Here are a just a few reasons why your family is sure to have fun times in Pigeon Forge.
1. There’s something to do for every member of the family.
The little ones will love bouncing around at TopJump indoor trampoline park, or playing miniature golf at the sweetest place in town, Crave Golf Club. Those hard-to- please teenagers may enjoy places like The Track for go kart racing, and the Hollywood Wax Museum for silly selfies. There are plenty of shows filled with amazing talent, such as Country Tonite and Smoky Mountain Opry, to keep the adults in the group entertained.
2. The Great Smoky Mountains provide a beautiful backdrop, and the national park is just a short drive from Pigeon Forge.
Your family can explore nature at its best every season of the year. From wildlife and wildflowers, to streams and waterfalls, there is so much to experience and learn about. Cades Cove brings a lesson in history to the area with churches, cabins, and the gristmill, which were established by the European settlers in the early 1800s. Make sure to visit Clingman’s Dome, the highest point in the park, to get an amazing panoramic view of the area. Without a doubt, your family will fall in love with the Great Smoky Mountains!
This place is a one-stop shop for all things food, shopping, and resting and relaxing. With dining options like Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville, Paula Dean’s Family Kitchen, and Timberwood Grill, your family certainly won’t leave The Island hungry. Show your adventurous side by climbing on the Island’s Rope Course or riding the 200 ft tall Great Smoky Mountain Wheel. Have a little family competition at the 7D Dark Adventure Ride, or work together to make it out of a room at The Escape Game. Take a break and hang out in the rocking chairs by the Island Fountains, or better yet get a massage at the St Somewhere Spa…you deserve it!
With so much going on all the time, it’s easy to understand why Pigeon Forge is your family fun place!
