This week, the communities of Sevierville, Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge are kicking off their annual Winterfest celebrations, and the one element each town shares is lots and lots of holiday lights. Once you combine all the light displays in the three cities, and then add in all the lights at Dollywood, we're talking millions and millions and millions of individual lights. That's a lot of bulbs!
Of course, you can tour any of the city's official light displays by car, but in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, there's another option for taking in all that brilliant nighttime scenery. The Gatlinburg Winter Magic Trolley Ride of Lights and the Pigeon Forge Winterfest Trolley Tour of Lights show off everything each city has to offer, and best of all, you get to let someone else do all the driving. And don't worry; during winter, the trolleys are heated, so all you and your family have to do is sit back and enjoy the sights.
Gatlinburg's Trolley Ride of Lights covers the downtown and U.S. 321 areas, with trolleys running at 6:30, 7:30 and 8:30 p.m. nightly. The cost is $5 per person. Lots of new displays and a total conversion to LED lights mean more new winter magic fun than ever for Gatlinburg visitors.
In Pigeon Forge, the Trolley Tour of Lights runs Mondays through Fridays in November and December, at 6:30, 7:45 and 9 p.m. The tour begins and ends at Pigeon Forge's Patriot Park and costs $5 per person.
And don't forget that for some the biggest daytime fun in the Smokies, you can always count on thrills and adventure at Smoky Mountain Ziplines in Pigeon Forge. The attractions that offer ziplining in Gatlinburg and Sevierville just don't offer all that we have to share with our guests – the most, the longest and the fastest zipline runs in this neck of the woods!
