The Parkway is the main road that runs through Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg. You’ll pass all kinds of attractions, shops, and restaurants you might want to try. Our hotel is right off the Parkway, making it easy to get to all the fun things you want to do, and it makes it easier to get wherever you want to go! 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

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 our hotel in Pigeon Forge on the Parkway, 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 or walk from our hotel. Not being cooped up in the car is a major advantage of vacationing on the Parkway.

2. Save Money and Ride the Trolley

Another benefit of staying at a Pigeon Forge hotel on the Parkway is having the option of leaving your car at our hotel and traveling on a trolley. The Parkway is lined with a number of stops where you can hop on a Pigeon Forge 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 a few dollars and is free for children 3 and under. You will love saving money on gas and taking a break from sitting behind the wheel.

3. Always Something Fun to Do
