Published Nov 4, 2022

Got a free weekend? Spend it in Pigeon Forge! Mix and match attractions from each category to create your perfect Pigeon Forge weekend.


  1. Get close to nature in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Pigeon Forge is a convenient base for exploring the Smokies. Take a scenic drive, walk to waterfalls, or picnic next to sparkling streams.
  2. Find thrills at Dollywood. With 50 rides, shows, delicious food, Appalachian handcrafts, and seasonal festivals, Dollywood can fill a whole day of your weekend.


Fit one of these easily into a morning or afternoon. You won’t find these attractions anywhere else in the United States! 

  1. Try “zorbing” at Outdoor Gravity Park. Jump into a giant, inflated ball and roll downhill on a 1,000-foot track! You’ll tell all your friends about this unforgettable ride.
  2. Go snow tubing indoors all year at Pigeon Forge Snow. The snow is always fresh, and the tubing tracks are open for you to zip downhill again and again. No winter coats are required! 


Let these hands-on museums immerse you in the latest historic and crime-fighting discoveries!

  1. Time travel at Titanic Museum Attraction. Imagine you’re a passenger on the doomed ship. Climb the Grand Staircase, touch a real iceberg, try to keep your balance on the ship’s tilting deck, and see genuine artifacts from Titanic. 
  2. Investigate notorious crimes at Alcatraz East Crime Museum. See how real-life CSI works and dive deep into crime and punishment.


How about one family show and one for grown-ups? With both matinee and evening shows, these fit nicely into one weekend!  

  1. The Comedy Barn features clean comedy for all ages! Bring the whole gang for catchy country music, dancing, animal acts, juggling, and gags galore.  
  2. Revel in nostalgic tunes at the Grand Majestic Theater. Groove along to one of the theater’s music revues. Soul of Motown celebrates classic soul, while Hit Parade showcases songs from the ‘50s through the ‘80s.


  1. Hang out at your private Pigeon Forge cabin. Bake cookies with the kids in the fully equipped kitchen or roast marshmallows at the fire pit. Choose a place with an in-cabin movie theater and binge your favorite flicks. Kick back on the deck with a glass of local moonshine. You’re here to relax.
