Spend this Thanksgiving out exploring the many attractions of the Gatlinburg-Pigeon Forge area rather than stressing yourself out by preparing a huge meal. It will be much more fun for everyone to just relax and enjoy each other’s company. If you’re looking for some fun activities to help you out with that, these activities are perfect and are even open during the week of Thanksgiving.
As one of the most popular shows in Pigeon Forge, the Dixie Stampede has years of great showmanship under its belt. Come and experience the fun and excitement of 32 horses and their riders doing tricks and competing for your entertainment. You can cheer on your favorites as you enjoy a delicious Southern-style meal of chicken, homemade biscuits, and other treats. This is one show you must not miss during your time in the area!
With the cold weather outside, you will want to enjoy some warm indoor entertainment while you visit. Make sure to stop by Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies where you can explore the underwater world of marine creatures. This aquarium has over 10,000 marine animals for you to see and learn about during your visit. You will see sharks, sting rays, and even a coral reef as you walk through the aquarium. You will also get the chance to touch some of these astounding creatures at the touch tank!
