Nestled in the Tennessee foothills of the Great Snowy Mountains is a little town that is mainly on the map due to its proximity to widely recognized tourist destinations. If you’re looking for a halfway point between aquariums, museums, and famous amusement parks, then Pigeon Forge is a place to be smack dab in the middle of it all.
If you’re interested in hiking, camping, outdoor water parks, or other exciting activities, Pigeon Forge is just minutes away from all of it. Historically, the town was born through a history of farm culture, using the land as a means of survival. But now, the city is very different. When you visit Pigeon Forge, you’ll see why it refers to itself as the “Family Vacation Hub” – it has only a very small number (less than 6,000) of residents, and the land is mostly used for tourist ventures.
One attraction in particular, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, was dedicated in 1940 and exists as a wonderful connection between the city and its natural roots of the land, a nod to its history, and a step towards preservation.
Pigeon Forge does have a seasonal climate, but a very mild one. Most travellers book Pigeon Forge flights during the summer months of June to August, when temperatures skyrocket well into the 30s, and sunny days and warm evenings create the perfect setting for amusement park adventures.
Both spring (March to May) and fall (September to November) are arguably the most pleasant times to visit, with temperatures resting around 15 degrees with cool breezes and warm days. May, however beautiful, is also known to be the wettest month of the year, with plenty of showers to create new summer growth.
October is the driest month, which is evident from the trees changing colour and lighting the streets with a glow of foliage. Winter is the least popular season to book Pigeon Forge flights, mainly because of the 4 degree average, but also due to the heavy rainfall.
