Summer Fun in Pigeon Forge & Gatlinburg, TN
The summer is an ideal time to visit the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, and the cities of Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Sevierville, Townsend and Cherokee, NC, offer plenty of fun things to see, do and explore.
Outdoor attractions abound on the mountains and in the cool waters of the Great Smokies. You can enjoy Whitewater Raft on the Pigeon, Nantahala or Ocoee Rivers out of Hartford, TN or the Nantahala Gorge. There’s Tubing on almost any river in the area especially the Little Pigeon and the Little River in Townsend, TN.
Our beautiful Smoky Mountains provides a great background for Ziplining, ATV rides and Horseback rides. There are over a dozen Zipline adventures offering multiple lines, swinging bridges, 4-wheel rides, ropes courses and climbing walls. ATV rides will take you through the forests, across streams and up the mountains to experience great views of the Smokies. And to really commune with nature, get on the back of a horse and ride through the Smokies and enjoy the peace and quiet and the occasional snuffling of your horse.
Other outdoor fun includes go-kart tracks, petting zoos, gem mining, fishing, hiking and going to the hundreds of outdoor and indoor attractions that the area offers.
