Pigeon Forge season

We are thinking about a Pigeon Forge area girlfiriend getaway the first week in November. I know that will be a lull time between seasonal foliage season and the holiday season. We like to shop but want to see other things in the area and I see that even during the holiday season that some things are only open on the weekends. Will things be open during the week or do shops, etc. close?

Things should still going pretty much full bore then. Check www.mypigeonforge.com for when Winterfest actually starts. The decorations are put up the last week in October, but won't be lit until Winterfest officially starts. If the shutdown is over, the Park will still be open except for a few roads that close for the winter. Early November is a great time to come.

Thanks so much for the quick reply and am very happy to hear that November is a good time to visit the Pigeon Forge area. Looks like the girlfriend getaway is a go!

In our opinion early November is the best time for a smokie mountains (area) vacation. The weather is usually warm enough for shirtsleeves to sweaters. The Christmas lighting displays will be up and turned on in all the holiday colors. If shopping is your "thing", then you're sure to want to visit "the Smokie Mountain Arts & Crafts Community" on Glades Rd in Gat/burg. You could spend a whole day there shopping, or just window shopping.
