Dollywood Theme Park
This 150-acre theme park is named after the legendary country singer Dolly Parton, an East Tennessee native and part-owner. The park is divided into ten unique sections that focus on the culture, music, and history of the East Tennessee and Southern Appalachian regions. The park is also home to 27 rides and 8 roller coasters.
Dollywood’s Splash Country
This sister-theme park of Dollywood is built across 35 acres in the natural mountain countryside. The numerous water-themed rides and slides at the park are designed to provide you with an exhilarating experience similar to swimming in the Great Smoky Mountain rivers.
If you want to experience what it felt like to be aboard the Titanic, the Titanic Museum is your best bet. It boasts authentic and interactive recreations of the ship’s interior, complete with over 400 artefacts from the actual Titanic.
This museum offers you a chance to walk among dinosaurs, or rather; terrifyingly realistic, life-size replicas of these primordial beasts. Among its star attractions, you can find a 45 foot long T-Rex and full-sized Allosaurus.
Pigeon Forge Mill
The town owes its name to this historic iron forge built back in 1817. Situated on the West Fork of Little Pigeon River, this historic gristmill is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A popular attraction with visitors, it contains a mill-house, an old waterwheel, and a mill-dam, all of which are in working condition.
