See & Do in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg, TN Area

Owl's Nest and Phoenix Lodge are located between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, Tennessee two of the most popular vacation attraction centers of the Smokey Mountains. Each property offers easy access to both areas.


Smokey Mountain National Park

A trip to the Smokies is not complete without experiencing the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Hiking to Clingmans Dome or biking in Cades Cove are our favorites! Leaf peeping in the fall or catching the fireflies synchronizing in the summer are unique experiences!



This special theme park is fun for the whole family! From rollercoasters to shows, Dollywood has something for everyone!  The holiday lights during Smoky Mountain Christmas or the fall Harvest Festival are magical! Cool off in the summer at Dollywood’s Splash Country!


Pigeon Forge

With the tourist mecca of Pigeon Forge right at your fingertips, the family is sure to be entertained!  

The Titanic Museum

Paula Dean’s Lumberjack Feud

Ripley’s Aquarium


Alcatraz Crime Museum

and the Hollywood Wax Museum are just a few of the many things to do!


Rafting & Tubing

Whether you want to get your heart racing with some white water rafting or want a leisurely float down the river, there are many local outfitters that can assist in your water adventure!


Moonshine Tasting

Sip the “white lightening” at several of the local distilleries such as Ole Smoky Moonshine.



This mountain town is a great place to walk around and enjoy the main shops and restaurants.  The Sky Bridge offers a breathtaking panoramic view of the Smokies! Anakeesta is family friendly theme park offering loads of entertainment such as treetop skywalk, mountain coasters and gem mining!
