If you’ve never visited Pigeon Forge, you probably aren’t quite sure what to expect. You’ve likely heard of the Parkway, or the street running through downtown, as the hub of excitement and attractions in the town. This five mile strip is the focal point of Pigeon Forge, home to many businesses and shopping locations. While it’s nearly impossible to list every attraction on the parkway, take a look at some of these businesses so you’ll know what to look forward to!
As you cross over Little Pigeon River and enter the Parkway at Traffic Light #0, you will pass the famous Hatfield and McCoy Dinner Show! If you’re looking for entertainment while you eat, this is the place to be. You will have a chance to join in on the fun and cheer on your family when the audience is split between feuding sides! The delicious home-style cooking is sure to satisfy everyone in your family.
Next up is the Titanic Museum Attraction, a 30,000 square foot ship-shaped structure that resembles…you guessed it, the Titanic! Board the ship and receive a boarding pass bearing a name of someone who was on the ill-fated ship so many years ago. Take a tour and experience the chill of icy water, touch an iceberg and even steer the ship! At the end of your journey, you will find out if the person on your boarding pass survived!
Then you will find The Track, your one-stop shop for everything fun! Challenge your family to a race around the go-kart track or play an intense game of mini golf. The main attraction is the Wild Woody – a cross between a go-kart and roller coaster! The wooden track will challenge you with 360 degree turns and wavy slopes.
Just up the road is the Lumberjack Feud, another dinner and show attraction! Watch as ESPN Timber Athletes compete in authentic lumber jack activities. The hilarious show hosts and athletes will leave tears in your eyes as they make you laugh with their funny antics. Go for dinner and a show, or just for the show! This is one that you won’t want to miss.
Right before Traffic Light #7 is the Country Candy Kitchen – a must stop in Pigeon Forge! Your kids will love watching as the candy cookers create fresh new candy daily. Try their delicious fudge or hand dipped chocolates. Not much of a chocolate fan? Then you’ll love their varieties of brittle and taffy!
The Pigeon Forge Parkway is full of endless fun and entertainment for you and your family. There’s no way to explore the whole Parkway in one day, so consider spending a few days exploring the town so you can take your time and enjoy the sights and sounds. Happy travels!
