Breakfast: Lil Black Bear Cafe

If you like small, mom-and-pop style places to eat, then you’ll love Lil Black Bear Cafe. This hidden gem is located right off the Parkway on Veterans Boulevard and serves up classic Southern dishes, from thick, golden pancakes and melt-in-your-mouth French toast to hearty omelets and sausage gravy over biscuits. It’s affordable, family-friendly, and approved by the locals! Kids are easily occupied while waiting for their food with cute bear coloring pages. 

Morning: Our Adventure Park

At Rowdy Bear’s Smoky Mountain Adventure Park, we have a unique ski lift shootout coaster, a mountain coaster, and outdoor axe throwing, in addition to the longest outdoor tubing hill in Tennessee! Fly down the hill by yourself or link up to 3 tubes together for a thrilling ride. We recommend doing the tubing hill first thing as it’s our most popular attraction, then head over to our other rides and activities once you’ve had your fill of tubing. 

Lunch: Frizzle Chicken Cafe

Grab a quick lunch and enjoy a break in between attractions by stopping at Frizzle Chicken Cafe. They’re most well-known for their singing animatronic chickens and serving up laughs alongside delicious food! They just might be the most family-friendly place to eat in Pigeon Forge TN!

Afternoon & Dinner: SkyLand Ranch

The fun rides, shopping, dining, live music, and other activities make it the perfect place to spend the rest of your day. When you arrive, you’ll reach the top of SkyLand Ranch via a scenic chairlift with some of the most incredible views of Pigeon Forge and the Smoky Mountains! Afraid of heights? Don’t fret – they have shuttle options available! Their mountain coaster, The Wild Stallion, will knock your socks off. It’s the longest mountain coaster in the area; it’s nearly 9 minutes of pure thrills! One of the biggest hits with the kids is the petting zoo and animal area, where they can interact with miniature donkeys, goats, cows, horses, and sheep, plus our famous Longhorns! If you get hungry, they have plenty of options, from their food barn to food trucks. Choose from delicious Southern classics like BBQ, chicken, and burgers, and you have to try their roasted corn and a drink from the Tipsy Cowboy. We guarantee you won’t regret visiting our Pigeon Forge attraction and Skyland Ranch on the same day!
