1. Visit a Museum
Museums are one of the best indoor activities to avoid the wet weather and Pigeon Forge has a large variety of them to choose from. Two of the most popular museums in the area are the Titanic Museum and WonderWorks. At the Titanic Museum, you can experience the life of an actual individual who went through the experience of the Titanic sinking. When you enter the museum, you will be given a boarding pass of one of the passengers that were on the ship and follow their day to day venture on the voyage. At the end of the attraction, you will be able to find out whether your individual survived the sinking of the ship. WonderWorks is an entertaining museum that is great for people of all ages. As you make your way through the exhibits, you will learn all about extreme weather, history, art and so much more! There are over 100 different hands-on exhibits that will give you something fun to do while you wait out the rain.
2. Play Indoor Mini Golf
Miniature Golf is always a fun family activity to do while on vacation. While Pigeon Forge has some amazing outdoor courses, they also have some fascinating indoor places to enjoy a round of miniature golf. Two of the most popular places to find miniature golf indoors are Crave Golf Club and LazerPort Fun Center. At Crave Golf Club, you will make your way through a sweet tooth paradise with a course that is dessert themed. A couple of the places you will travel through include Sugar Safari and Dreamland Cliffs. At LazerPort Fun Center, you will be treated to one of Pigeon Forge’s best blacklight mini golf courses. This is a space themed course that will leave you thinking you have left Earth on your voyage. The fun center also has other indoor activities available as well, including go-karts, laser tag, and an arcade. Enjoying a family game of miniature golf is one of the best indoor activities in Pigeon Forge.
3. See a Spectacular Show
One of the best things to do in Pigeon Forge when the weather outside is not desirable is to see one of the area’s exciting shows. The only thing better than watching an amazing show is being served a fabulous dinner on top of it. Luckily, Pigeon Forge is home to several of the best dinner shows in the South, including Pirates Voyage and Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Feud. At the Pirates Voyage, you will join the world’s most famous pirate, Blackbeard, and his crew as they lead their ship into battle. Watch to see if they are able to be deemed masters of the sea while you enjoy a fabulous 4-course meal. At the Hatfield & McCoy show, you will watch the two families try to settle their differences and determine which family reigns supreme on the mountain. Before the show begins, you will be assigned to be members of one of the two families and you can cheer on your family to victory while you enjoy an all you can eat family style meal! Why choose between dinner or a show when you can go see one of these two attractions and get the best of both worlds!
