Set in the Smoky Mountains, Pigeon Forge is known as the family-fun center of Tennessee.
From hiking and zip-lining to rolling through the mountain ranges in an air-filled bubble, there are endless activities and attractions to see and do. The stunning mountain views are just the beginning of things to enjoy.
White Water Rafting
Pigeon Forge has some great spots for this adrenaline-pumping activity. Imagine rafting the Big Pigeon River and enjoying the Smoky Mountain scenery at the same time. The river’s white-waters are the most popular in the United States.
One attraction unique to Pigeon Forge is the Space Needle- a 400-foot tower, arcade zone and educational center that hovers high in the sky. The sights are not only amazing, they are spectacular. The only way to get to the top of the saucer-like tower is to ride up in an elevator made completely of glass! From the observation deck, visitors can get a 360-degree view of the pristine lands and the Smoky Mountains backdrop. The viewfinders on the deck are free to use!
For the adventurists, there is a place with over 150 acres of wilderness that you can ride a zip line through for over a quarter mile. Flying 200 feet over the forest floor is an unforgettable and heart-pounding experience that everyone should try at least once. The zip lines take riders over cool historic sites, as well as colorful wildflower meadows.
For the equestrian inclined, saddling up to trek the Smoky Mountain trails has never been easier than from Pigeon Forge and the sights are out of this world. The Tennessee steeds are bred just for the purpose of handling the extremely variable and tough terrains in the smoky Mountains forests. The forest-shrouded and fog-misted trails are reminiscent of scenes straight from movies, and it’s almost hard to believe that such beautiful places really exist.
There are also some museums that display many educational oddities alongside some of the most innovative and unique exhibits. There is even an aquarium featuring the ocean’s deadliest predators, next to some of the most exotic marine creatures. One museum has everything upside down, as you’ll quickly realize when you walk in! It’s a museum full of odd exhibits and offers kids of all ages a ton of fun, interactive displays and attractions.
Pigeon Forge visitors will notice that the fun never runs dry, and the amazing views go on for miles. It’s the ultimate destination for those wanting to stay close to nature, yet still be within reach of theme-park-like attractions. Pigeon Forge combines the two dynamics flawlessly, and makes for the perfect family destination.
