    Traveling While Black

    Pigeon Forge is where all the fun is. From helicopter rides. Gaming complexes, I think a distillery is still there, skydiving and, of course, Dollywood. Dollywood, by far, is very welcoming and fun. You have shows, rides, foods and sometimes you can see Dolly herself. Just remember to have someone hold your phone if you go on the water ride. The weather isn’t too hot in the summer, so it’s really comfy. You also have a outlet stores for shopping, skip Margaritaville, it’s low tier food with weak drinks. The hotels are really good too, very clean. I also recommend the helicopter tour

    Traveling While Black

    Though this is gorgeous place to travel, just keep in mind a few things: Gatlinburg is very beautiful but still has some elements of racial tension so it’s recommended to travel in groups at night. Do not make a wrong turn to the wrong cabin at night since some people live in them that may not be so kind.
    Pigeon Forge has a lot more to do from shopping to tours and a 5D gaming complex which I recommend. There isn’t much of a night life outside of what you do in the cabins or hotel. Be mindful that there are black bears. So don’t leave food out. All in all, it’s pretty chill, just be mindful where you are and don’t take any detours through any towns as it’s definitely surrounded by a lot of Sundown towns and Sundown counties
