October 27, 2016

As anyone who has visited Pigeon Forge, Tennessee can tell you, the Parkway is where all of the action is! This main road runs through Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg, and features all of the best attractions, shops, and restaurants in the area. Valley Forge Inn boasts an amazing location right on the Parkway! Here are a few of the benefits of vacationing at a Pigeon Forge hotel on the Parkway:

1. Less Time in the Car, More Time Having Fun

If you’re like most visitors to Pigeon Forge, it probably takes you at least a couple of hours to get here. After your initial road trip to the Smokies, you probably won’t feel like doing a lot of driving while you’re on vacation. Kids, in particular, can only tolerate so much time in the backseat of a car. When you stay at Valley Forge Inn, however, you won’t have to do hardly any driving at all. All of the wonderful things to see and do on the Parkway are just a short drive from our hotel, and some of the attractions are within walking distance. Not being cooped up in the car is a major advantage of vacationing on the Parkway.

2. Save Money and Ride the TrolleyCloseup photo of a Pigeon Forge Fun Time Trolley.

Another benefit of staying at a Pigeon Forge hotel on the Parkway is having the option of leaving your car behind and catching a trolley. The Parkway is lined with a number of stops where you can hop on a Pigeon Forge Fun Time Trolley and tour the area. The trolleys go to some of the most popular destinations in the Smokies, including Dollywood, Dollywood’s Splash Country, Wears Valley, and the Gatlinburg Welcome Center. A ride on the trolley only costs $1 and is free for children 3 and under. Guests at Valley Forge Inn will love saving money on gas and taking a break from sitting behind the wheel.
