Dollywood is a world-class theme park destination that combines thrilling rides and water parks, with a wide variety of cultural opportunities for both large and small families. Adventure and thrill seekers will enjoy their visit, as will those looking for a slower pace in which they can enjoy fine food, shopping and entertainment.

Nestled against the majestic Smoky Mountain National Park, Dollywood has been a favorite of visitors since Dolly Parton herself purchased the theme park in 1986. Dolly Parton grew up in the town adjacent to the theme park, and after graduating high school and heading to Nashville, she vowed that if she were to become a star, she would come back and help her hometown. Dollywood is now the most-visited attraction in Tennessee.

Fans of Dolly Parton will enjoy visiting her museum of personal artifacts and the replica of her childhood house. Award-winning shows that feature her family members are also a great way for fans to connect with the country singer while visiting Dollywood.
