Pigeon Forge is well known for its many family friendly attractions. In fact, these attractions are one of the main reasons that it has become such a heavily visited spot for tourists in the U.S – it really is a spot that has something for everyone. However, the trick to this is that sometimes certain spots have to be found before they can be enjoyed to their fullest. Because the city offers so much, finding the right spot for the right person can often be something of a task. This is especially true in the case of teenagers, as the family-oriented tag given to the city can often deter teenagers from exploring the area. Yet there are plenty of spots that can interest teens as well. Here are just a few:
Dollywood – Despite its downhome reputation, this place not be overlooked when vacationing with your teen. The many thrill rides within the park are perfect for any thrill seeking youth.
Big Mama’s Karaoke Cafe - When looking for ways to take your teens out on the town in the evenings, you shouldn’t overlook this place. Here you can get CDs or movies of your and your teen’s stirring renditions of popular songs, and can even make your own music videos! This is sure to be a hit with any teen. For fun in a similar vein, you could try the Smoky Mountain Brewery, which features karaoke after nine at night on Sundays and Mondays, with Thursday specified as an open mic night.
Great Smoky Mountain National Park -If you are raising a particularly adventurous teen, then this is a good place for them. The many trails to hike are enough to keep any interested individual busy for a long time. There are also rivers just waiting for a family tubing trip!
These options should be more than enough to please even the most stubborn of teenaged children, but don’t take our word for it! Plan your next trip to Pigeon Forge and be sure to check out these hotspots.
