There are plenty of indoor attractions that you can visit for hours of entertainment during the cold winter months. In fact, the winter can be the best time to visit the Smokies as there are fewer crowds and you can often have even the most popular attractions practically to yourself! Here are the top 4 fun indoor attractions in Pigeon Forge that you can enjoy during the winter season:
1. Titanic Museum Attraction
Step inside the Titanic Museum Attraction to see what it was like to walk the hallways, cabins, parlors and Grand Staircase of the world’s most famous luxury liner! When entering the ship, you will receive the boarding pass of an actual Titanic passenger and feel their presence as you examine over 400 artifacts taken directly from the ship and its passengers.
