Pigeon Forge, in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee, sounds idyllic and rural, right? Not exactly. What was once a farming town is today a self-proclaimed “family vacation hub,” heaving with attractions and hotels. The city owes a lot of its fame to Dolly Parton, whose Dollywood theme park is a must-see. But it’s not all man-made glitz – Pigeon Forge is nestled in the Appalachian Mountains, so there’s plenty to keep hikers and outdoor lovers occupied as well. With so much to do – and endless potential for sore muscles – you’ll be thankful there are so many hotels in Pigeon Forge with hot tubs, all bookable with Culture Trip.
