Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg are riddled with amazing attractions, restaurants, and things to do. At the root of it all, though, we are all here for one main reason: to see the Great Smoky Mountains. You can see them from just about anywhere here, but where are the best views? We’ve got the answer!
1. Lumberjack Feud- Timber Towers
The Lumberjack Feud Adventure Park in Pigeon Forge is home to the world’s-FIRST zipline rollercoaster, The Flying Ox! The view from the top of Timber Towers (where you board the coaster) is incredible. Enjoy the views the entire ride!
2. Crave Golf Club Rooftop Course
Located on the Parkway in Pigeon Forge is the city’s only rooftop mini golf course. It’s a candy-lover’s paradise that offers a breathtaking view of the Smokies while you play! Be sure to snap a photo from the top!
3. Cade’s Cove
If you’re coming to the Smokies for the first time or have never been to Cade’s Cove, we cannot recommend visiting enough. This is not a place to simply view the Great Smoky Mountains, it’s a place to be in them. You’ll be surrounded by wildlife and nature only found in Appalachia!
407 ft. high in heart of Gatlinburg is a 360-degree view of the Great Smoky Mountains. The Gatlinburg Space Needle has been a staple to our community for decades; and for good reason! You won’t regret the elevator ride to the top. (Pro-tip: bring binoculars!)
5. Great Smoky Mountain Wheel at The Island
That giant wheel you pass on the Parkway just happens to offer one of the best views of the Smoky Mountains in Pigeon Forge! You’ll be in a climate-controlled, comfortable gondola with windows all around you so no one misses out on the view!
