The Island of Pigeon Forge TN

Tuesday, December 26, 2017
This our annual tradition of going to the Island during Christmas. The lights and decorations here were outstanding. It's so relaxing and festive, it quickly became my favorite place in Pigeon Forge. The Island is the central gathering point in the Pigeon Forge approx. 25 minutes away from Gatlinburg. With great shopping, restaurants of all atmospheres, sight seeing and attractions, there’s something for everybody. Take a ride on the giant Ferris Wheel to catch a view of the mountains and lights, enjoy the fountain that plays music with light shows, stop for a moonshine sample or eat to your hearts content at any number of delicious restaurants.

Some tips:
  • 1. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes (it can be quite a hike from the far end of the parking lot). But the tram is available for those who don't want to walk.
  • 2. Be sure to check out Pigeon Forge Attractions website on coupons for shops and rides.
  • 3. Get to restaurants like Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville or Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen early on the weekends.
