Pigeon Forge

Pigeon Forge, a mountain town and vacation area in eastern Tennessee, is the home of Dollywood, country singer Dolly Parton’s Appalachian-themed park consisting of rides, an adjoining water park and a museum of her costumes and memorabilia. The city’s other attractions include country music revues like the Smoky Mountain Opry, dinner theaters such as Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede and outlet malls. Great Smoky Mountains National Park preserves a rich cultural tapestry of Southern Appalachian history. The mountains have had a long human history spanning thousands of years-from the prehistoric Paleo Indians to early European settlement in the 1800s to loggers and Civilian Conservation Corps enrollees in the 20th century. One of the reasons why our area has quickly become one of the fastest-growing vacation destinations is all of the fun and family-friendly things to do in Pigeon Forge. Here, you can race your friends and family around a go-kart track, cheer on your favorite musician at one of the local theaters or plan an outdoor adventure. The opportunity for fun and excitement is limitless when you travel here.
