Get Your Cowboy Boots and Hats Ready for a Pigeon Forge Vacation
Big theme parks treat the kids, but few often have the right mix of entertainment options for the whole family. That’s where a Pigeon Forge vacation in Tennessee is different. Pigeon Forge is located at the foot of the beautiful and scenic Great Smoky Mountains. A trip to this country town has something for every member of the family mixed with mountain culture and charm.
Pigeon Forge Vacation: Saddle Up for Some Country Fun
Pigeon Forge is home to one of the country’s most popular theme parks, Dollywood, which is loaded with rides, games, and shows for kids and adults. While visiting, browse the Guinness Book of World Records Museum, Dinosaur Walk Museum and take in any number of live shows in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.
In addition to theme parks and live shows, Pigeon Forge also hosts family-friendly festivals throughout the year. One can’t-miss is Saddle Up, an event that celebrates American West culture.
Saddle Up! runs in February each year and offers country fun, food and entertainment. The Saddle Up! festival, like the host town itself, promotes and honors mountain living in style. While attending, expect to sample delicious country foods at the annual Chuckwagon cook off, shop for souvenirs at the Western Marketplace and dance the night away at the Western Swing Dance.
