Family Activities:




2700 Dollywood Parks Blvd., Pigeon Forge, 37863, TN

Dolly Parton grew up in the Smoky Mountains, and her theme park borrows heavily from her local heritage. The rides range from tame to terrifying — providing something for everyone in your family. The performances and demonstrations are not to be missed either — many feature the country star’s family members — nor is a chance to see Miss Parton’s former tour bus. Tip: If you arrive after 3 p.m., your admission is free the next day.
