You should go. Even if you’re not sure. You can learn a lot and there is something to enjoy for everyone including the birds, gardens, and views. They are doing a good job rescuing and rehabilitating the birds. The picture with all the birds is...More

I don't recall seeing a no pets allowed sign but I doubt they will allow pets in since they have birds on perches out in the open

My family is going to Pigeon Forge for a few days next week and I am interested in opinions about Parrot Mountain. We have been to the area several times but have never went to this attraction. Is it worth going to? I appreciate any comments that you have.

We try to go every other year. It is awesome. One of the few attractions that is more than worth the price.

If you think you have done all there is to do in the Smokies and are looking for a new adventure, I encourage you to go to Parrot Mountain. This is one of the most beautiful attractions I have seen. They have the most beatiful birds(which you can feed them), and flowers you can imagine. It will definetely put a smile on your face. We really enjoyed it.

I totally agree. Dh and I have been going to Pigeon Forge for about 7 years and just finally went to Parrot Moutain. It was great! I can't believe it's been there all that time and we never went. We aren't even bird people and we loved it! Great for kids!

I just read a review of this place. Wandering why in 7 1/2 years of going to the Smokey's I have never heard or seen it before. This place looks AWESOME! I'm adding it to my list of To-do's next month. =)
