Another One of My Favorite Vacation Spots: Pigeon Forge, TN

Pigeon Forge, TN
This is the city you have to pass through to get to Gatlinburg. Oh, and FYI, country music is HUGE down here. So don't mind it if you see places with countrified names or named after country singers

I wanted to go on this go-kart track so bad! But, like most of the go-kart tracks, you must have a valid driver's license

The local Ripley's Believe It or Not! museum

The Old Mill. It's a restaurant. Very good food. I'd recommend it

My mom's 2 favorite words: Outlet Mall!

Dollywood. The resident theme park named after Dolly Parton.

A local brewery

This hotel was across the street from the hotel we stayed in the last time we visited Gatlinburg. This hotel has a lazy river in it

Mama's Farmhouse. A local restaurant to get some good home cooked food.

The Lazy Bear Inn

Lazerport. A laser tag and video arcade

There was never one time when we were there that my mom didn't go in there and buy herself a new souvenir- kitchen utensils!

This place is really good to go to in the morning for breakfast. This place is like the Southern cousin of what we know of as Frisch's

Hillbilly Village flea market

Just some of the many souvenir places invading Pigeon Forge

Sign you see upon entering Pigeon Forge

Krispy  Kreme! They have killer glazed donuts! One bite and you can't stop eating them, they're that good!

No Way Jose's. Mexican restaurant

The Riverstone Resort, near Dollywood

The Dixie Stampede. Live comedy shows

Fire Tower Falls water slide at Dollywood, the local theme park

The Comedy Barn. Live comedy shows

The local theme park

As you can clearly see, Elvis is REALLY popular down in the South! If my stepdad ever saw this, oh brother! He'd have ammo for annoying my mom for the next 10 years!
