Its a beautiful place but everything is over priced. You will have to decide that for yourself. Some of the staff are not very friendly. The only reason we go is we love to eat at timber wood grill.

We visit Pigeon Forge every December and we love walking around the Island. The Christmas trees are beautiful. The water fountain is in rhythm with the Christmas music that plays around the Island. The shops are unique and make for a great evening of shopping

The Island was very close to our hotel so we visited often for dining, shopping and entertainment. Our group ranged in age from 11-70 and everyone enjoyed themselves.
