The excitement of something new and the joy of returning to places you love to visit.
Sevierville blends the best of both worlds to create experiences the whole family will enjoy. This year, make plans to visit these family favorites and a few new places, too, in the Smoky Mountains.
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 while visiting and range from discovery zoos and thrilling zip line attractions to mini-golf courses, go-kart tracks and even a massive trampoline park.
Around townthere are several new things to see and do beginning this summer, like riding a scenic chairlift to the top of SkyLand Ranch—a picturesque mountaintop farm featuring a canopy walk, suspended bridge, mountain coaster, shopping and dining. SkyLand Ranch will also be home to a variety of miniature rescued animals (including mini cows and donkeys) and is set to open in late spring of 2022. Soaky Mountain Waterpark is also unveiling a new, first-of-its-kind dueling watercoaster this summer. Called “The Edge,” the ride lets guests race each other to the finish line and is just one of the many family-friendly attractions at this expertly designed waterpark.
