If you’ve been following along on my Facebook feed, I was sharing about the oh-so-fun trip that I had to Pigeon Forge at the beginning of the month. I have hardly caught my breath since the trip – but am just now getting caught up on the posts!
Me and two other bloggers from the Twin-Cities (MN) took a LONNGGGG road trip all the way down to TN. It took us about 30 total hours (including a hotel stay and a little shut-eye, and several trips to Starbucks) to drive there – but it was worth it.
We packed 34 women into a beautiful cabin from Cabin Fever Vacations that was overlooking the beautiful smoky mountains.
This cabin was amazing. There were 8 bedrooms, and a large loft area with 4 sets of queen bunk beds. I didn’t mind sleeping in a top bunk, so that’s where I chose to sleep.
My favorite part about this whole cabin was the beautiful deck area that each floor had – It was easy to hop outside and look out over the smoky mountains and not feel like you’re stuck inside a cabin with 34 other women!
Cabin Fever Vacations has several cabins in different sizes and locations: You can rent a much smaller cabin for your smaller family vacation; or for larger groups like ours. Check out CabinFeverVacations.com for more information on rentals.
Pigeon Forge, TN
I was thoroughly surprised at the town of Pigeon Forge, and how much fun you could have as a family. The entire town is ‘Dry’, meaning no alcoholic beverages are sold anywhere in the town: but that just makes it all the more family-friendly.
The streets are lined with some 14 pancake houses, and an amazing quantity of amusement parks. We had the chance to visit several great attractions: Dixie Stampede, Dollywood, Lumberjack Feud, Titanic Museum, Hollywood Wax Museum (which I sadly missed out on going to), and ClimbWorks Ziplining.
We also had a pretty sweet 80’s party that was sponsored by Flashing Blinky Lights: Yep, the creepy girl in the big picture? That’s Me. Creepy.
Overall – we had a really great time in Pigeon Forge, and our time ended far too soon. I could have spent at least another week exploring the town and trying all that Pigeon Forge has to offer!
I have most certainly added Pigeon Forge to my list of places to take my family one day in the next few years when they’re both big enough to ride rides!
A special thanks again goes out to Carpet One for sponsoring this trip for me, making this trip possible! Check out their great selection of flooring products at www.carpetone.com.
Cabin Fever Vacation Rentals provided a reduced price, and Pigeon Forge board of tourism helped to set us up with some great companies in hopes that I would write about the fun times that I had. I definitely was impressed and would highly recommend your family visit Pigeon Forge.
