November is bursting with fall flavors, sparkling lights, great music, and holiday shopping in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge.
Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg share this season of lights. Drive through Pigeon Forge to see the famed 12 Days of Christmas illustrated in lights. In Gatlinburg, native animals of the Smokies come to life in light displays. With five million lights glimmering, take your own driving tour or a trolley ride to see them all.
LIGHTS OVER GATLINBURG AT GATLINBURG SKYLIFT PARK
At SkyLift Park, you catch a gently gliding lift chair from downtown Gatlinburg up the mountain. The park festoons its SkyDeck and SkyBridge with 40,000 twinkling lights. You’ll feel as if you’re walking on a bridge of stars. The SkyBridge suspends you above a deep valley, on the longest pedestrian cable bridge on the continent. Grab food at the SkyDeck, then stroll the lighted SkyBridge and look far down at nighttime Gatlinburg, glittering far below.
DOLLYWOOD’S SMOKY MOUNTAIN CHRISTMAS
Country Christmas songs and traditional carols waft through the crisp air. Polar bears magically visit their black bear cousins in delightful lighted displays. And these are only the start of Dollywood’s holiday treats! Eat seasonal goodies and wander through the theme park’s five million colorful lights. Dollywood’s 50 fantastic rides are open, and fireworks light up the night sky throughout the month.
