The 6 Best Things to Do in Pigeon Forge This Fall


Experience the crisp coolness of fall in Pigeon Forge. These six activities will keep you warm!


1. ENJOY DOLLYWOOD’S HARVEST FESTIVAL

Smell the spice of autumn treats, and taste them all. Thrill on Dollywood’s breathtaking rides, listen to the music everywhere and watch artisans make unique crafts. After dark, stroll and snap pictures of thousands of carved pumpkins, a forest of sunflowers, shimmering frogs, a huge Pumpkin Tree, and more. All ages will love this glimmering world.


2. HIT THE HOTTEST SHOPS

Pigeon Forge is the perfect place to do your shopping this fall season. The weather is comfortable, the leaves are beautiful, and there are many great deals to be found. You'll find everything you're looking for, whether it's a new wardrobe or some new decorations for your home. So come on down and enjoy the cooler weather and great deals this fall season!


3. TOUR THE FALL FOLIAGE

Pigeon Forge lies next to the vast Great Smoky Mountains National Park, famed for rich autumn colors cascading down the mountainsides. Take in the trees’ changes as you hike any of the park’s 800 miles of trails, from easy strolls to challenging climbs. Drive scenic routes like winding Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail or mile-high Newfound Gap Road. Be sure to catch the view from Clingmans Dome, the highest point in the park, before the road to the Dome closes for the winter.


4. VISIT THE ISLAND

The Island in Pigeon Forge is a one-stop destination for great food, rides, games, unique shopping, and unusual attractions. View the brilliant fall leaves from a ride aboard the Great Smoky Mountain Wheel, lifting you 20 stories above the ground for amazing sights. Try the fall flavors in restaurants and specialty food shops. Be sure to sample Pumpkin Pie flavored moonshine at Ole Smoky Moonshine!


5. RIDE A MOUNTAIN COASTER

Mountain coasters combine the excitement of racing downhill with the beauty of the Smoky Mountains in fall. On these “gravity coasters,” you control your own speed, you can take it slow enough to grab views of the fall foliage. Pigeon Forge has plenty of mountain coasters to try, including Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster and Rocky Top Mountain Coaster.


6. RELAX AT YOUR PIGEON FORGE CABIN

A cabin is an ideal place to make new memories. Laze on the deck, drinking coffee in the crisp fall air. Order takeout (don’t forget pumpkin pie) and dine at the cabin, then play pool or have a movie night. Cozy up by the fireplace indoors or the fire pit outdoors. After coasters, shopping, and Dollywood, you’ll love hanging out at your autumn getaway spot. Fall flies by quickly. Reserve your Pigeon Forge cabin today.
