You may already know that Pigeon Forge, TN and Gatlinburg, TN have plenty of things to do. But you may not know much about the neighboring mountain town of Sevierville. While a bit slower and maybe sleepier than its bustling neighbors, Sevierville, Tennessee, still has a wide range of things to do. It’s relaxing yet packed with options for having fun and exploring! It’s also home to the Tanger Outlets, a place you’ve no doubt heard of (or spent a little too much money at…) if you’ve ever visited the Great Smoky Mountains.
If you’re heading to Sevierville and need some ideas – whether you’re a couple, family, group, company, or team – we have some great ideas for the top things to do in Sevierville! Read on!
For some unique fun, head underground for some unique fun – deep below the Smokies at Forbidden Caverns. Once home to moonshiners, it’s now a top attraction in Sevierville, TN. Looking for something more above ground? Check out Foxfire Mountain, where you’ll find zipline tours, off-road adventures, climbing walls, America’s longest swinging bridge, and more!
If you’re here in fall, be sure to visit Kyker Farms, a family favorite in the Great Smoky Mountains. You can find the perfect pumpkin, watch the leaves change, let the littles try the slides and swings, go for paintball zombie shooting, and check out the huge Korn Maze! For adrenaline-pumping fun, go to NASCAR SpeedPark to drive a 3/8-scale Sprint Cup car, play miniature golf, go rock climbing, or play around with the bumper cars!
Both kids and adults will love the Rainforest Adventures Discovery Zoo, home to Golden Headed Lion Tamarins, lemurs, lizards, Poison Dart Frogs, African Crested Porcupines, macaws, and much more. They have animal shows, chances to pet the animals, and more! At the Tennessee Museum of Aviation you can browse the historic artifacts, read all about the history of Tennessee aviation, and stroll through the 35,000-square-foot aircraft hangar! Oh, and don’t forget to stop by the Dolly Parton statue on the lawn of the Sevier County Courthouse. You can pose with the beloved native for a fun, free, and unique photo!
Eat & Sip
Sevierville is also home to some lovely wineries and restaurants, perfect for romantic weekends as a couple or just some grown up fun between kid-centric attractions and activities. At Hillside Winery, you’ll find Italian-style and bubbly wines, family-friendly tours, and tastings 7 days a week. Hillside Winery is also a part of the 6-winery Rocky Top Wine Trail. At the Sevier Distilling Company, “Every drop fermented, distilled & bottled by master craftsmen” means delicious drinks to enjoy there or to take back to your cozy Cabins for YOU cabin. They feature distilled honey, artisan vodka, and moonshine in unique flavors. You can also try Tennessee Legend Distillery, with whiskey, vodka, cream liqueur, and rum in fun flavors like fiery mango margarita and apple pie!
