When most people think of vacationing in Pigeon Forge, TN they think of coming during the Summer, or during the traditional holidays like Christmas, New Year’s, Valentines, etc. But I have a not-so-secret secret to share.
Pigeon Forge is great during non-holiday weeks!
Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge stay pretty busy during the Summer and all of the traditional American holidays so we tend to see an uptick in traffic, lines for rides, and business around town. However, during non-holidays in Pigeon Forge the crowds are not nearly as large, the lines aren’t as long, and you experience a more relaxed environment in general.
Thinking of visiting one of our Pigeon Forge cabins? Give us a call at 1-866-513-7885 or take a look at our selection of cabins.
Now, I do understand that some people like the crowds. It makes them feel like they’re part of the excitement and magic that is this place. However, if you prefer to spend most of your vacation time outside of a car and would rather be relaxing than standing in lines then trying Pigeon Forge during the non-holiday times is a good idea. Wondering when you might want to come?
The following is a quick run-down of dates that Pigeon Forge does not typically see a large influx of visitors:
Early and late February (not Valentine’s weekend)
End of April
Early November (up until the weekend after Thanksgiving)
Early December (avoid the days after Christmas through New Year’s)
Here’s some stuff to do while you’re here:
Ober Gatlinburg (ice skating, skiing, snow tubing)
Take a hike at the Smoky Mountains National Park
Visit Dollywood(go after 3pm and get the next day’s visit free)
Build a snowman at your cabin (we’ve seen some decent amounts of snow this year)
Visit the upside-down mansion really Wonderworks is a great family attraction)
