Nestled in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains, Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, is known as one of the top family vacation destinations in the country. If you enjoy the outdoors, there is much for you. The Feast of Tabernacles takes place when you can enjoy the fall colors, so its natural beauty brings out the outdoorsman in everyone. If you enjoy quality family time, good family entertainment, a wide selection of restaurants and plenty of shopping, you will love Pigeon Forge.
Although the area is known for its many craft stores, its wonderful musicians, and its countless go-kart tracks and miniature golf courses, it also boasts one of the most active, well-represented outlet malls in the entire country. Additionally, in neighboring Gatlinburg you and your family can take in the beautiful Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies. We are planning to put together a well-balanced activity schedule sure to interest all tastes.
Housing consists of a variety of motel rooms with many offering a full breakfast in the rate. And, of course, there are also beautiful one- to four-bedroom condos. Or, for those with extended families wanting to share, there are large chalets and cabins that sleep up to 30. Housing prices begin at $52.75 per night and go up from there. This is also an area with several campgrounds for those who might enjoy camping during the Feast.
Pigeon Forge is easily traveled. There is a divided highway through the middle of the town. The Smoky Mountain Convention Center has free parking and has no steps, so it is also easily accessible for everyone.
