It’s vacation time, so a time to take a break from your everyday life. That means you need to take a break from everything, even driving! Who wants to spend their vacation driving around, when you can let someone else do the driving for you?
The Pigeon Forge trolley is one of the best options for visitors who want to relax and not worry about driving. Better yet,when you stay in one of Amazing Views’ Pigeon Forge cabin rentals, you will be able to take a really short drive to the nearest trolley stop, park the car closeby and spend the rest of the day enjoying the sights and sounds of the Smokies from the passenger’s seat.
The Pigeon Forge trolley started running in 1986. Their mission, which remains the same today, was to create a safe, affordable and convenient transportation option to all Smoky Mountain visitors.
Now, the Pigeon Forge trolley system operates over 30 trolley vehicles. Since there’s so many vehicles making their way around Pigeon Forge, there’s plenty of trolley vehicles around, so you don’t have to sit and wait for long.
Today, visitors can hop on a trolley at over 100 stops throughout Pigeon Forge alone. You can get on and off the trolley as many times as you’d like throughout the day, so it’s convenient to you.
