Pigeon Forge in the Smoky Mountains

     Pigeon Forge, Tennessee is known as the center of fun in the Smokies and there are plenty of activities to back-up that claim. The last weekend in May brings Memorial Day activities as many of the Smoky Mountain businesses open for the season, especially the outdoor attractions. This year you have the Oak Ridge boys in concert at Country Tonite, a classic car Cruise In at The Diner in Sevierville and Smokies Baseball games in Kodak, right off of I-40.

Tubing in the SmokiesAnd its these fun things that bring couples, families and groups to the Great Smoky Mountains. The great weather makes it very enjoyable to enjoy horseback riding, ziplining, whitewater rafting, hiking in the National Park and tubing on the Little River in Townsend. There are always plenty of indoor activities like visiting Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies, playing Laser Tag, testing your wits at MagiQuest or challenging yourself at the many tests of mental and physical skill at WonderWorks.

Staying in a cabin is a lot of fun and a good way for families and groups to connect and spend time together.
