While heading into Pigeon Forge make a stop at The Coaster at Goats on the Roof for a zippy ride down the mountain coaster then pedal fast to feed the goats…on the roof.

For shopping, head over to Pigeon River Crossing Mall for a variety of brand name shops.
Take the Parkway in downtown Gatlinburg for a variety of fun attractions. Play a game of mini-golf at Circus Golf, half funhouse half mini-golf for 100% of fun. Visit the Space Needle to get a 360 degree view from the observation deck and at the base catch a show at the Iris Theater which features a variety of shows. Head over to Ole Smokey’s Distillery for a taste test of authentic moonshine being distilled on the Parkway.
With your stay at Bear Necessities you will be among the foothills of the Smokies and not far from the heritage rich town of Townsend, one of the main gateways to The Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Explore the mountains by horseback with Davy Crockett Riding Stables get out on the beaten path away from all the hustle and bustle. Bring your beach towels and head for the Townsend Y, a local swimming hole where the Little River and the middle prong of the Little Pigeon River join, and sunbathe on the sloping hills while enjoying the pristine nature that surrounds you.
