We had an intriguing thought: If a person were to visit every single attraction in Pigeon Forge, how long would it take? This week, we're going to take on an unusual task. We're giving you an answer! We're going to list every attraction in town (or at least as many as we can think of) and estimate how long the average visit might last. (Note that these estimates are purely rough guesses and not based on actual data.) Then we're going to pad each guess with travel time to and from the attraction from a hypothetical hotel/motel in the middle of Pigeon Forge. We're going to assume that your day starts at 9 a.m. and ends at 9 p.m. (yep, you'll be plum tuckered out), and we're going to assume that at attractions with multiple activities, including Dollywood, you participate in everything that location has to offer! We're also going to factor in one hour for lunch and one hour for dinner, and we'll assume that this trip takes place in summer.
The results will hopefully give us a rough idea of how many vacation days you'd have to accumulate to completely do Pigeon Forge. The goal? Beyond being an exercise in curiosity, we think this is a great way of showing the tremendous number and variety of attractions in town. So the next time you do allocate some of your vacay days to a trip to the Smokies, you'll know that when it comes to things to do, Pigeon Forge has it all!

We probably overlooked an attraction or two somewhere (our apologies), but even with what we've listed here, it would take 17 days to take on every single attraction in Pigeon Forge. And that's assuming you start at 9 in the morning and go straight through until 9 in the evening, only stopping for one-hour lunch and dinner breaks. No shopping, no resting.
Let's take that a step further. Let's say you're only interested in going from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., the length of a typical workday, and you stop only to take a one-hour lunch break. Then it would take you 20 days–nearly three full weeks–to experience every attraction in Pigeon Forge.
And that's just Pigeon Forge! Add Gatlinburg and Sevierville into the mix, and you're easily looking at two solid months of nothing but attractions in the Smokies!
