2. It’s Affordable

Often, the biggest red flag that deters families from planning a vacation is cost. Parents are worried about spending too much money after they consider the gas or airfare it’s going to take to get there, the money needed to buy food while they’re gone, and the price of admission for all the events and attractions their family wants to check out. But if staying within your budget is important for your family vacation, then you can play it safe and still have a great time when you come to Pigeon Forge!

Pigeon Forge has several budget-friendly options for outdoor and indoor play that will please the entire family. Of course, you’ll want to check out the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Admittance to the park is completely free, and there are plenty of no-cost activities you can enjoy while you’re there. For instance, you can choose from literally hundreds of hiking trails and enjoy some time in the great outdoors with your family. The trails have a wide variety of distances and difficulty levels, depending on your experience.

Another budget-friendly attraction in Pigeon Forge is the Pigeon Forge Community Center. Here, you can bowl, play basketball, and swim with the family for a minimal fee. And if you’re looking for a way to save money on food while you’re away, plan to buy groceries and cook in your cabin instead of eating out for every meal. Our Pigeon Forge cabins come with full-size kitchens, so you’ll have access to everything you need to feed the family without breaking the bank.
