Ten Things Not To Do in Pigeon Forge

Pigeon Forge is such a beautiful place to vacation. The Smoky Mountains offer the pefect backdrop to family vacations, romantic honeymoons, class reunions, and more. Not only are the Smoky Mountains beautiful, but there’s tons of things to do in Pigeon forge. There are so many things to do in Pigeon Forge in fact, that it can feel overwhelming when choosing your next adventure.

Even though there is a lot to do in Pigeon Forge there are some things that you should absolutely not do while visiting. We’ve put a fun list together just for you.

1. Don’t eat out for every meal – It may be tempting but if you’re staying in a cabin you may want to eat in on occasion. It will save you money for sure!

2. Don’t try to do it all – There’s so much to do in Pigeon Forge that there’s no way you can fit it all in with only 7 days. If you do try to fit it all in, you’ll need a vacation from your vacation. Instead of doing it all, find some things to do lists and pick your favorites before you leave for vacation. This brings us to our next point.

3. Don’t wait till you get to Pigeon Forge to decide where you will stay and what you will do. Book your place ahead of time, especially if you’re coming in the summer. You never know when a big convention is in town or a big event is about to happen and you don’t want to get stuck without a nice place to stay. Same goes for deciding what you’ll do. Pigeon Forge can get pretty packed and there’s no easy way to figure out what to do if you haven’t planned ahead. Don’t be too rigid, but have a few things picked out ahead of time so that you don’t have to do a bunch of planning while you’re here.

4. Don’t pack more than one pair of high heels – This one goes to the ladies. Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg are walking towns. You won’t find a lot of places around here that you’ll need to dress up for. You might need a couple of pairs of heels for dinners while you’re here but that’s all you’ll need them for.

5. Don’t expect your GPS and cell phones to work %100 of the time – Most GPS systems don’t like the roads in the Smoky Mountains and neither do most cell phone providers. Therefore, you should have a full tank of oil and gas when you get to town. You should also have printed directions to where you’re staying while you’re here.
