Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge are charming mountain towns set among the gorgeous scenery of the Great Smoky Mountains. Collectively known as “the Smokies,” the towns are home to dozens of unique shops, communities of artists, Southern cuisine, and a rich Appalachian history and culture. Pair all of that with our cozy and inviting mountain cabins for a vacation destination that feels like home.
But the Smokies goes beyond cozy, charming, and inviting. It’s like a mini Las Vegas (minus the slot machines and neon lights), offering entertainment at every turn. And the shows here don’t disappoint, with over-the-top performances of dancers, toe-tapping country music, flying singers, live animals, comedians, pyrotechnics, laser light displays, dazzling costumes, and so much more.
Dinner shows are a favorite in town, but if you want something really unique for a night out, go to a magic show! Talented magicians will amaze you with their larger-than-life stunts and illusions, putting on truly spectacular shows for all ages!
