Get Away & Escape To Pigeon Forge, TennesseePhoto by C. Edmondson Bridges

The transcendental beauty and adventure of the vast Smoky Mountains in eastern Tennessee won my heart at first sight in 2010.  My family graciously surprised me with a birthday road trip celebration and the blue haze that graced the Mt. Leconte felt like a sweet song that could not be heard, but felt in my soul as the fresh mountain winds caressed my face. Wide eyed and instantly placed at ease as we cruised the parkway into Pigeon Forge, I fell in love with this place. At the time I didn’t know this would be that magical place I would return to over 8 times over the years to celebrate love, loved ones, & just becauses.

Besides the hypnotizing natural beauty the smoky mountains offer, there is no lacking of activities, epicurean delights,  and indulgent offerings for families, girlfriends getaways, or couples.

For the first time traveler, feel free to reach out to the Pigeon Forge Department Of Tourism.

Pigeon Forge is within a few hours drive from many southern, eastern, & Midwest cities. An awesome excuse to road trip! In the meanwhile, here is a sampling of some of my experiences!

Stay Cozy With Fireside Chalets

I love fireside chalets and the endless accommodation options for every budget including everyone from the most novice adventurer, to the most discerning traveler, & every happy traveler in between. I opted for a 3 bedroom riverside cottage for fun times with my closest loved ones. I absolutely loved the sound of the rushing Pigeon Forge River right outside while having my cup of coffee on the back deck.

For the Christmas lover at heart, they even have cabins & cottages decorated year round!🎄☕❤

Reach out to them today and plan your next highly anticipated getaway! They are extremely friendly and will assist until you find that perfect cabin or cottage.
