As many of you know, I moved from North Carolina to Florida this summer. What you might not know is that I am really missing those Great Smoky Mountains! One of my favorite visits to the Smokies was when Alex and I spent a week in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee for our anniversary! (FYI we have been married for 11 years now. Isn’t that nuts?)
Pigeon Forge is a beautiful little mountain town located in the east end of Tennessee at the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. My husband and I rented a cabin with a gorgeous view! (I highly recommend renting a cabin. There are hotels but I personally recommend getting a cabin with a mountain view!). Click here to find a cabin rental.
Every day, after coffee and yoga on the porch, we would drive down the mountain and explore the endless events, attractions, and things to do in Pigeon Forge! This small town actually has a ton of activities. I can’t let you pass up this place. Pigeon Forge should be toward the top of your list of places to travel when you feel safe! Let me tell you all about it.
What To Do in Pigeon Forge
With so many shows, events, and attractions – Pigeon Forge is the perfect place to create some fun family memories. They don’t call it “The Center of Fun in the Smokies” for nothing!
Pigeon Forge has something to please everyone in the family. If you are looking for attractions, there are over 80 different fun businesses to choose from! The 3 most popular are Dollywood, Titanic Museum Attraction, and WonderWorks. Dollywood is a theme park, the Titanic Museum Attraction is actually a replica of the Titanic ship, and WonderWorks is an interactive science museum!
Would you like to see some world-class entertainment? Pigeon Forge has a ton of shows to choose from. The Country Tonite Theatre has live music. The Comedy Barn Theater has live comedy. Paula Deen’s Lumberjack Feud has actual lumberjack competitions. Dolly Parton’s Stampede, Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Feud, and Pirates Voyage Dinner and Show are examples of some wonderful dinner shows.
Pigeon Forge also has over 300 boutiques, outlets, and stores when you want to shop for a souvenir or two!
My favorite thing to do when I visit the Smoky Mountains is go hiking! I love to experience the natural beauty of Tennessee! There are plenty of waterfalls and trails all around Pigeon Forge.

I can’t write an article about Pigeon Forge without mentioning the inclusive southern hospitality culture! Everyone I met was warm, sweet, and welcoming to visitors. This atmosphere just breeds togetherness.
There is also such a cute mountain cabin look to everything. Even the local Starbucks is adorable!
