It’s no secret that if you come to Pigeon Forge during the holiday season you’re going to see more Christmas lights, more shopping opportunities, and more cars than you’re likely to see anywhere else within a 100 mile radius. During the spring you’re like to see more classic cars, the fall brings about more colorful foliage, and summers bring more vacationers from more states and more countries than other times. So it’s no surprise that a new city slogan is proclaiming Pigeon Forge as the “Land of More”.
Of course, this new campaign is a concerted effort of attract more visitors every year and grow what is an already booming tourism industry.
“More” is the umbrella covering all of Pigeon Forge’s unique attractions, restaurants, and businesses in the city. When you think of more attractions, it’s hard to pinpoint another place close by that offers a theme park like Dollywood with roller coasters like the Wild Eagle and a water park right next door. More theaters align the parkway in town and give guests quite a selection of shows to pick from including the Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Feud, and the Lumberjack Feud.
When you mention more restaurants, it’s tough to travel a half mile on or around the parkway without pulling in front of a restaurant. And there are so many great places to eat around here nowadays from the Mellow Mushroom to the Partridge & Pear to Bullfish Grill, you’re bound to find something to satisfy everyone’s taste buds.
As far as businesses go, you won’t find more shopping opportunities than you’ll find int he Pigeon Forge/Sevierville area. Of course, everyone thinks of the Five Oaks Tanger Outlet Mall first and foremost, but on down the road there are such popular places as the Christmas Place, where you can find every Christmas-related item imaginable, and the new Walden’s Landing area – both of which feature outdoor shopping with a more modern feel.
It’s a great start for Pigeon Forge as the city looks to attract even more visitors during the spring and summer seasons. TV, radio and print ads will begin running in March in 18 different markets.
Pigeon Forge is located just a short distance from Interstate 40 in East Tennessee. Taking exit 407, you’ll travel south along Winfield Dunn Parkway (Hwy. 66), through Sevierville, until it becomes U.S. 441. Stay on 441 and you won’t miss it, you’ll actually run straight in to Pigeon Forge. Hope to see you this spring and summer!
