If you want to experience everything that Pigeon Forge has to offer but do not want to worry about driving everywhere, there is an easy solution. The Pigeon Forge Trolley can take you all throughout Pigeon Forge and to parts of Sevierville and Gatlinburg. This saves you from having to drive in an area you aren’t familiar with. Here are 4 other benefits of riding the Pigeon Forge Trolley:

1. Don’t Worry about Traffic

TrafficDuring the peak seasons, the traffic in Pigeon Forge can be hard to manage, especially if this is your first time visiting the area. With the trolley system, you can just sit back and enjoy the ride without having to worry about switching lanes or being at a standstill. The drivers on the trolleys are well trained so you can feel safe while you ride. Also, the city is full of interesting shops and attractions that are fun to look at as you drive by. When you are the one driving, you are not able to see all there is to do when you are constantly having to worry about the next red light or stop sign. On your next visit to Pigeon Forge, just sit back and relax on the trolley instead of spending your vacation dealing with the headache of traffic.

2. Save on Gas Money

When you use the Pigeon Forge Trolley while on vacation, you do not have to worry about filling your car up with gas. There is nothing worse than being stuck in traffic and your low fuel light comes on and not being anywhere near a gas station. Instead, leave your car behind at the hotel and let the trolley worry about the gas. You will also save money this way because you will not be forking over the money at the pumps. The price for each trolley ride depends on which route you are taking, but none of the rides are more than a couple of dollars. You can also buy an all day pass for $3 that can be used on any route for the entire day. There is no need to worry about spending money on gas when you can ride the trolley and use the money you save for dinner or an attraction!

3. No Problem Parking at Attractions

DollywoodWhen you visit a popular attraction, such as Dollywood, you normally have to worry about finding a parking spot. Instead of spending time driving through the parking area, the trolley will drop you off right at the front entrance of the attractions. Not only do you not have to worry about parking, you can save energy on the walk from the parking lot to the attraction entrance. The trolley system truly makes experiencing some of Pigeon Forge’s best attractions much easier.
