TripAdvisor recently reviewed the top destinations that are on the rise and why travelers love them! The list is composed of the top 15 destinations and Pigeon Forge lands at number 4 on the list under another Tennessee favorite, Nashville at number 1. With Pigeon Forge at number 4 they note that with the misty blue backdrop of theSmoky Mountains National Park that Pigeon Forge is a “gateway to 500 thousand acres of Appalachian wilderness.”
If you’re not interested in hiking some of the mountain trails or camping in the beautiful forests, one might head on into Pigeon Forge for some fun. Dollywood is a huge amusement park founded by the country queen, Dolly Parton herself, that combines rollercoasters, live bluegrass and gospel concerts and even a down home country fair. Dollywood is a long time fan favorite but what makes Pigeon Forge a fun and unique destination is that there is always something new coming to the area! Other favorites include Wonderworks and the Ripleys Aquarium, along with the very new Titanic Museum. Also just this past year we had several new attractions such as theLumberjack Feud, The Hatfield and McCoy dinner show, and a Tomb attraction open up in Pigeon Forge and we’re excited for what’s happening in 2012 and 2013! All these great things are what make Pigeon Forge such a great place to visit! Have you planned you Pigeon Forge trip? Get started today!
