Pigeon Forge Trip Planning Tips
If you have yet to take a trip to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee it’s time you start planning your trip! Not only does Pigeon Forge include the Great Smoky Mountains, but this city also offers many other attractions, dining, and shopping options for the entire family. So whether you’re planning a big group trip or an intimate getaway, you’ll need a few of these planning tips so you can have the best trip possible!
Keep the Current Season in Mind
Unlike the beach or ski resorts, Pigeon Forge really is a place to visit year-round. There is no single “best time” to visit the area because each season offers something special to see. However, keep in mind what season you want to visit in. If you want to see autumn leaves fall visit during the Fall months, if you want to see the Smokies blooming with wildflowers and green mountain tops, visit in the spring or summer time. If you want to see the city of Pigeon Forge lit up during Winterfest from late November to February. Regardless of the time of year you come on your trip, it will be great, but just keep in mind how you would like to see the National Park.
Anyone Can Enjoy the National Park
Many visitors might be thrown off by Pigeon Forge being a place for only “outdoorsy” people. That is not true at all! You don’t have to be an outdoor person at all to enjoy the National Park or Pigeon Forge. Scenic drives like the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail, Newfound Gap Road, and the Cades Cove Loop Road are perfect sightseeing options of the park without having to hike or walk it. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the beautiful views outside your car window. So if you’re concerned about the elderly you may be traveling with or if you don’t like to break a sweat, remember the Smokies can be seen however way you prefer!
Consider Festival or Attraction Schedules
Many of the amusement parks and attractions hold year-round events or festivals. If you’re looking to enjoy a festival be sure to look up the time of year they will be held during. If you’re looking to stay away from the big crowds, look up the time of year there isn’t much going on. However, festivals are one of the best things to attend in the Smokies!
