Having trouble deciding whether to spend your vacation in Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg? Don’t worry, we’re here to help! Both are attractive vacation destinations, so we understand your uncertainty. In this brief FAQ, we’re going to give you all the information you’ll need to make your decision. Let’s get into it! 

Pigeon Forge

First off, let’s take a look at Pigeon Forge. Pigeon Forge is the larger of the two cities, with just under 6,000 full-time residents, and features a variety of fun and unique attractions, most notably the Dollywood theme park. In addition to these attractions, there are also an abundance of hotels and resorts that vary widely in price and amenities. 

 

Although these features make this a very attractive city to visit, you should be aware that the city is doggedly plagued by one issue: crime. This is one of the most unsafe cities in the U.S., with a combined violent and property crime rate that is 233% higher than the U.S. median. If you decide to visit this city, be sure to take as many crime safety precautions as possible. 

Gatlinburg  

Although smaller in population and not home to quite as many man-made attractions as Pigeon Forge, the city of Gatlinburg is our pick between these two cities when it comes to a vacation destination. With beautiful nature vistas, tons of great accommodation options and a list of things to see and do that is anything but shabby, we think you’ll agree that this is the clear winner on all accounts. 


After you visit Gatlinburg, there's a good chance you might not want to go back where you came from! If you decide that you want to make this charming city your new home, save yourself some trouble and give one of the top real estate agents in Gatlinburg TN a call. These professional and experienced realtors will help you find a home that suits your needs, at the lowest cost possible. Before you know it, you might just be calling Gatlinburg home!
