Things to do in the area

Wears Valley, Townsend, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg are well known for their winterfests, springfests and various other events throughout the year.  Festivals draw in people from all over, as well as local people from other areas of TN.  Pigeon Forge is well known for their various car shows.  Gatlinburg is well known for its shops, arts & crafts district, and the Skybridge in Skylift Park. 

Our cabin is located in beautiful Wears Valley, located between Townsend (the quiet side of the Smokies) & Pigeon Forge.  We are about 10 miles from Townsend, and 8 miles from the parkway at Pigeon Forge, where you will find shopping, restaurants, dinner shows, arcades, and tons of family fun.  We are approximately 18 miles from Gatlinburg.  

Here are some of the events for this year and into next year.  We hope this is helpful to you when planning your next trip to the Smoky Mountains.
