Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

Looking for a perfect vacation spot that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg? Then Pigeon Forge, TN is the perfect place to take your family! There is an endless list of things to do and experience in the hometown of Dolly Parton.

First on the list is of course, Dollywood. It offers exciting rides to go on, or you can relax and watch one of the many shows that are put on throughout the day. If you decide to visit during the summer, then Dollywood’s Splash Country is the perfect place to take your family to cool off. It has a countless amount of slides you can ride down, or chill out in the huge wave-pool!

There are also many cool stores you can visit all throughout town. This includes Rocky Top Leather, where you can pick up some neat western-wear so you can go home with some style! They offer all different styles of cowboy boots and hats that will fit your personality.

You know you are going to get hungry some time during your trip. The perfect place to grab an amazing steak would have to be The Peddler in Gatlinburg. It is a short 5 mile drive from Pigeon Forge, and also has many exciting things to see and do.

Do you enjoy skiing or snowboarding? Then you have to check out Ober Gatlinburg’s slopes during the winter! They blow their own snow whenever it gets cold enough to ensure you have fresh powder to ride on all winter long. You also cannot forget about seeing all the Christmas lights that are displayed throughout the season. While you are here, you have to take a cruise through the Great Smoky Mountain National Park because if you don’t then your whole trip was wasted!

The list goes on and on about things to do in Tennessee, but these are just a few options you should definitely check out if you decide to visit. Just keep them in mind the next time you are thinking about taking a vacation.
