The Ultimate Guide of Things to Do in Pigeon Forge for Adults

If you’re thinking about taking an adults-only trip to the Smoky Mountains, you need to know about the best things to do in Pigeon Forge for adults! From shopping to exciting attractions and delicious food, you’ll have plenty to look forward to whether you’re planning a couples getaway or a group vacation. 

Shop at The Island

The Island has so much to offer, from interesting boutiques and shops to moonshine tasting and of course, the Great Smoky Mountain Wheel! You can browse for unique gifts and souvenirs, walk around and admire the Show Fountains, and enjoy a sweet snack at The Island Creamery or Byrd’s Famous Cookies. We also recommend cooling off with a refreshing drink from Bob’s Lemonade! Not only is it free admission and free parking, but it’s also dog-friendly, so your four-legged family member can tag along with you!

Go to Country Tonite

Even those who aren’t the biggest fan of country music will enjoy this feel-good show. It’s fast-paced and will have you buzzing for a long time afterward.

Explore Mountain Mile Mall

There’s something for everyone at the Mountain Mile Mall in Pigeon Forge, including thrill rides and escape rooms! Conquer the Mountain Monster rides that take you 200 feet above the ground and see for yourself why people are loving the stomach-dropping experience. There are clothing boutiques and home decor stores, specialty food shops, and other unique places such as the Savannah Bee Company and the Coffee Armory. You can even visit Junction 35 for whiskey, moonshine, and other spirit tastings! If you like solving puzzles, we especially recommend doing at least one of Escapology’s incredible escape room games. Work together to solve mysteries such as who stole the Mona Lisa or find the treasure of The Lost City!

Go Ziplining 

Thrill-seeking adventurers must try ziplining through the mountains! Smoky Mountain Ziplines is a top-rated spot for its 7 ziplines, friendly and helpful staff, and convenient location just off the Parkway. If you’ve never ziplined before, it’s an experience words can’t explain well enough, but we can guarantee you won’t regret soaring through the trees!
