There's no doubt that enjoying recreational opportunities in Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a top priority among visitors to this neck of the woods. Hiking, bike riding, picnicking, fishing and camping are just a few of the fun outdoor activities that millions of visitors enjoy inside the park each year.
If you've ever driven to Pigeon Forge and/or Gatlinburg on a Smoky Mountain vacation, chances are you first drove through Sevierville, Tennessee, on your journey. Decades ago, Sevierville was little more than a place to stop to get gas or a bite to eat on your way to one of the other destinations. But these days, Sevierville has more to offer tourists than ever before. And if you haven't taken a look at that city's downtown area lately, you'll see why Sevierville has become a worthy place to stop and play in its own right.
