Pigeon Forge is a great vacation spot when traveling with family. There are shops and shows for the adults. For the children, Dollywood, multiple rides on the main street, and the race tracks all over town will make sure the children leave happy and the parents leave broke. Do not go if you are on a diet though, because the phrase "country cooking" must have been initiated here, as they do have the best Southern food. Pigeon Forge is a fun town and best experienced with a group.
