If you’ve never experienced fall in the Smokies, you’re missing out on something quite special! The changing leaves and beautiful weather create a magical setting to enjoy the great outdoors; plus there are so many delicious apple and pumpkin spice treats to eat. Take a look at 3 reasons your family should visit Pigeon Forge Tennessee this fall:
1. Views of Smoky Mountain Fall Foliage
At Rowdy Bear Adventure Park, you can admire breathtaking views of the Smoky Mountains as you ride the conveyor up the tubing hill or ride our mountain coaster. Also, our Skilift Shootout is a thrilling experience that lifts you above the trees, offering beautiful glimpses of the leaves’ bright colors. To immerse yourself more in the yellows, oranges, and reds of fall, head over to SkyLand Ranch for more outdoor fun. They’re located just a few minutes away, so you could easily make it a full day of nonstop fun! Situated on a mountaintop, there’s no shortage of scenic overlooks that will never cease to amaze at SkyLand Ranch.
2. Mild Temperatures for Outdoor Activities
It’s easy to spend the day at our Pigeon Forge attraction when the weather is so nice! The kids will love running around the playground, trying their hand at axe-throwing, and flying down the outdoor tubing hill. Plus, with our unlimited ride wristband (which does exclude tubing), they’ll be able to experience it all as many times as they want! Another great way to soak up the natural beauty of the season is to visit the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Whether you take a hike, drive a scenic route, or explore historic sites, there’s plenty of opportunity for stunning photos and panoramic views, and you won’t have to worry about scorching hot temperatures.
3. Seasonal Sweet Treats
One of the best things about fall is the delicious sweet treats that make the season extra enjoyable, from pumpkin spice to apple cinnamon. The Apple Barn, not far from our attraction in Pigeon Forge Tennessee, has some of the most tasty apple-themed treats for the whole family. Enjoy a cup of apple cider with a sweet treat such as their apple fritter, apple pie with ice cream, apple dumplings, and so much more. Inside their general store, stock up on their famous apple butter, flour mixes, and handmade candy. You’ll be able to find anything and everything apple-themed that you could possibly want! But before you leave Rowdy Bear’s Adventure Park, make sure to stop by our very own sweet shop, Sugar Bears Cafe and Creamery for a thick milkshake– we are constantly changing up our seasonal options, so you won’t want to miss our fall flavors!
