Located in the foothills of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Sevierville is music superstar Dolly Parton’s hometown. Visitors to this beautiful and interesting part of the world enjoy natural wonders, world-class entertainment and high-end, name-brand outlet shopping, all served up with signature Southern charm.

Across Sevierville, you’ll have opportunities to embrace the natural surroundings while hiking, fishing, swimming, horseback riding and more. Rent a kayak for a relaxing day on Douglas Lake or enjoy boating, canoeing, jet skiing and more. Fishing is also popular, both at the lake and in Sevierville’s Little Pigeon River, which runs throughout the city and is home to a world-class smallmouth bass fishery.

While Mother Nature certainly takes center stage, Sevierville’s attractions are a must-see and range from discovery zoos and thrilling zip line attractions to mini-golf courses, go-kart tracks and even a massive trampoline park. Plan a visit to SkyLand Ranch—a picturesque mountaintop farm featuring a mountain coaster, entertainment, shopping, dining and a variety of miniature animals to meet. Nearby, Soaky Mountain Waterpark offers family fun in the sun with thrilling waterslides, kid-friendly play areas, a massive wave pool and family-sized cabanas to keep things cool. 

Around town there are several new things to see and do this year. Memorial Day weekend the world’s largest Buc-ee’s will open in Sevierville near the 407 interstate exit. With 120 gas pumps, a 250-foot-long car wash, and 74,000 square feet of retail delights, this is one stop that shouldn’t be missed! Xperia: Ocean Journey will also open this summer at Tanger Outlets Sevierville. This immersive cinematic experience will give guests the feeling of exploring the ocean while interactive and educational elements provide an educational component everyone will love. 

Historic downtown Sevierville is well worth a visit. Pick up a free Discover Sevierville Historic Walking Tour brochure and learn about more than 40 points of interest, including the famed statue of Dolly Parton.
