Dollywood is known for its thrilling rides, family-friendly fun, award-winning shows, and mouthwatering meal options.

We recommend riding the longest coaster in the park, Big Bear Mountain, and trying the world famous cinnamon bread from the Grist Mill! It will be an experience you’ll never forget.

3. Take in the Views

Part of what attracts millions of visitors to Pigeon Forge each year is its proximity to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

We recommend going for a stroll along the Riverwalk Greenway, which follows along the West Prong of the Little Pigeon River. You can also pack a picnic lunch and drive to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park for even more breathtaking views! The park is home to more than 800 miles of trails, scenic drives, and more. If you’re lucky, you’ll get to spot a black bear!
