Blog Home : Category Posts : Top Indoor Attractions in Pigeon Forge

You can plan a lot of things on your vacation, but there's one thing that's simply out of your control:

The weather.

Even though the forecast can keep you from enjoying Dollywood or an afternoon of horseback riding, there are still tons of incredibly fun things to do on your rainy day in the Smokies!

To keep your vacation plans from getting washed out, we've made this guide with the 10 best Pigeon Forge indoor attractions that you're bound to love rain or shine!

Rainy Day in the Smoky Mountains and Gatlinburg

Don't let the rainy day blues ruin your vacation, instead try these fun indoor activities!

1. Play Indoor Mini Golf

Lazer Port Fun Center in Pigeon Forge has an 18-hole, black-light course that's entirely indoors. The kids will have a blast and the dazzling colors of this mini-golf course create a truly unique experience. It doesn't hurt that this attraction has other fun activities like laser tag and the largest video game arcade in the Smokies, too.

This free museum tells the story of the Smoky Mountains region's past including the Cherokee, early settlement, and the development of the national park. There's also a 30-minute video about the Great Smoky Mountains.

Final Thoughts on Pigeon Forge Indoor Activities

Another way to keep rain from putting a damper on your vacation fun is to book a cabin rental.

We can all agree that hanging around a hotel room isn't the best way to spend a vacation.

If you book a cabin, you'll always have the option of playing billiards in the game room or simply relaxing in a hot tub or jetted tub. Better yet, other rentals come with fantastic amenities like theater rooms and indoor swimming pools that are bound to make your trip a delight no matter what the weather holds!
