With the best places to stay, things to do, restaurants, shopping, and more, you and your family will have everything you need to make greater memories. Your trip to Pigeon Forge will be full of activities and fun with the beautiful Smoky Mountains as the perfect backdrop. 

Every year, Pigeon Forge continues to grow. From Dollywood to The Island, to attractions on the main parkway, there is always something different from the last time you visited. One of the best parts about our city is that you can never say, “I have done it all!” 

Pigeon Forge is home to some of the best entertainment in the Southeast! World-class singers, dancers, musicians, and other talented acts are always ready to entertain guests and blow them away with top-notch performances. With plenty of dinner shows and family-friendly options to choose from, there is no question why live shows are one of the most popular activities in the area. If you plan to visit during the holidays, make sure to swing in one of these shows and see how everything is transformed into a winter wonderland. These shows also have special music, new dances, and other out-of-the-ordinary skits in their acts! 

If you are looking for an adrenaline rush, this is the place to find it. With white-water rafting, ziplining, go-kart racing, and mountain coasters, we have just the fix for those with an adventurous spirit. 

Pigeon Forge is also a great place for outdoor enthusiasts. Anglers and fishermen can cast their lines in the Little Pigeon River, and families can visit city parks where their children can enjoy playgrounds, and everyone can share a picnic. For something a little calmer, enjoy a quiet stroll on the Riverwalk Trail on the banks of the Pigeon River. 

Here in Pigeon Forge, we refuse to let the rain dampen our spirits. When the weather is gloomy, step into any of our museums and indoor attractions to keep making greater memories with your family. Take pictures with your favorite stars in wax form, explore the digital world with virtual reality, learn about the history of crime in America, or see who can win the biggest prize from one of our arcades. 

If you are looking to shop ‘til you drop on your vacation, you need to visit Pigeon Forge. We have over 300 boutiques, outlets, malls, retail shops, dining complexes, and more, you will never run out of options. Our shops have everything from name-brand items to handmade creations by local artisans. 

Pigeon Forge prides itself on fulfilling the standard of Southern hospitality. No matter where you’re from, we will treat you like family. Our backyard is the ultimate playground for visitors from all over the world. Don’t be shy; come visit and get ready to make greater memories!
