Pign Forge, Gatlinburg, Townsend or others?

In Greenville Sc for tournament. From Chicagoland, on the way to, already taking advantange of the drive from Cherokee, Blue Ridge Pkwy to Greenville, SC. ON THE WAY BACK, is what we are struggling with. We are planning on checking out Clingmans Dome and like Roarking Forkes Motor Trail...we only have a day to explore Smoky Mtns. So by evening we will just about be done and need to know is it best to stay in Gatlinburg, Pign Forge, or any other town suggestions just for evening interest? We can only stay the night then head on out early in the morning because then we are venturing to Mammouth Cave KY.....Please help with these plans...thanks!

I would stay in Gatlinburg, and eat dinner at one of the great restaurants then walk around downtown.

Pigeon Forge is cheaper and much newer and nicer hotels, Gatlinburg's hotels are really dated and about $30.00 higher, Townsend is to far out for me and there is nothing to do. We stay in Pigeon Forge and you can always drive up Gatlinburg which is only like 5 miles if you want to see it.
