Press Visits

Thanks for your interest in Pigeon Forge, one of the country’s most popular family vacation destinations located near the entrance to Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

We invite members of the working media to consider a research visit which can connect journalists with various points of interest, attractions, local contacts and accommodations that will be covered in articles, posts, books or broadcasts.

To initiate a trip request, please complete this form. A minimum of two to three weeks’ notice is appreciated to ensure adequate planning time to connect journalists with local contacts. 

Please note that complimentary arrangements are provided at the discretion of the host businesses and Pigeon Forge Department of Tourism. All are subject to availability. Black-out periods may be experienced throughout the year that may necessitate a press rate, especially at lodging properties. 

We regularly work with editorial travel bloggers and social media influencers. If you are interested in showcasing Pigeon Forge to your followers, please fill out this form for consideration.
