Pigeon Forge is a wild place in Tennessee, mainly known for being where Dollywood is located. I stayed there to be close to Great Smoky Mountains National Park while not being too far from society, but I had no idea what I was really getting myself into. Who would’ve thought that a relatively small town in Tennessee would have some of the worst traffic I’ve ever experienced, and that’s after driving through the heart of D.C. nearly every day!
But aside from taking over an hour to get anywhere on the main strip, the town was very cool! Things there were kind of sketchy due to Covid (went in October 2020), but now that we can see light at the end of the Covid tunnel, I could definitely see myself visiting there again.
