Riverside Inn Steps from Famous Pigeon Forge Attractions

When you’re driving down the wooded US Route 441 in eastern Tennessee, it's easy to miss the old wooden sign at Pigeon Forge's entrance that touts the riverside city as a "family vacation hub." From its cozy niche in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains, the once-sleepy hamlet has blossomed into a bustling vacation destination that is equal parts Smoky Mountain charm and quirky amusement. Right on Route 441, The Inn on the River is situated along a tranquil stretch of the Little Pigeon River, less than 5 miles from lively attractions including Dollywood, Wonder Works, and Titanic Pigeon Forge.

The inn's cozy guest rooms are equipped with maple-wood furniture and come with a private balcony overlooking the Little Pigeon River and the Smoky Mountains. In the morning, cooks dole out a hot breakfast, and you can fuel up for the day at the waffle-making station before heading downstairs to an indoor pool with hot tub. Along the river, grills and picnic tables offer a picturesque setting to chow down on homemade burgers.

Pigeon Forge, Tennessee: Family-Friendly Entertainment in Smoky Mountains

Amid rolling Appalachian foothills, US Route 441 connects the towns of Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg, forming a major entertainment trifecta. Each town boasts a wide range of dinner shows and theme parks, from mom-and-pop performances to nationally known acts. Pigeon Forge stands out for its historical town center, where a cluster of old-fashioned shops form the Old Mill Square along the Little Pigeon River. Inside the mill, a pair of 4,600-pound granite stones has been grinding grain and juicy rumors since the early 1800s.

For a head start on planning your trip, choose one of the options that includes tickets to Ripley's Aquarium, located down the road in Gatlinburg. Here, exotic stingrays and four-eyed anableps swim among a menagerie of marine life beneath a backlit waterfall. In the colorful, 750,000-gallon shark lagoon, green eels serenade sand tiger sharks with stirring renditions of "That's Amore." For the ultimate interactive experience, slip into a wetsuit and swim alongside friendly stingrays.

And of course, anyone in the area should spend a least a day exploring the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, America’s most-popular national park. The park covers cascading waterfalls, more than 1,500 types of wildflowers, and dozens of historical mills and barns in the southern Appalachians. Naturally, the area is a haven for outdoorsy activities, whether it's kayaking, whitewater rafting, hiking, trout fishing, or panning for gems. While exploring, keep an eye out for elk, black-bear cubs, eastern box turtles, and white-tailed deer.
