Getting around Pigeon Forge is an exercise easily undertaken as most of its tourist-aimed offerings are along the main highway U.S. 441 or as the locals call it, “The Parkway.” The Parkway is a six lane road divided into two three lane sections, one running north and the other south and runs through the city’s full length of six miles. Sidewalks line the strip but are often interrupted by driveways into businesses along the way. From U.S. 441 you can get to all other roads in the city such as Dollywood Lane, home to the Dollywood theme parks which are about 4 miles down the road.

Pigeon Forge has a public transportation system in the form of The Fun Time Trolley, which makes it rounds every 20 minutes or less and has a route that encompasses nearly all of the destinations of interest in the city, as well as a route running to Gatlinburg that comes every 25-30 minutes. For those not looking to be tied down to a schedule or a route, car rental would be an ideal approach, especially if your points of interest are off the beaten path, such as the Mount Zion Cemetery founded originally in the early 19th century.
