Now we all know vacation planning can become extremely overwhelming. You need a place that has something for everyone to do. If you’re looking for somewhere to go that has nonstop entertainment, shopping, and dining, then we think you would love a Summer in Pigeon Forge getaway! Pigeon Forge is one of the most family friendly destinations around and most visitors can be here in less than a day’s drive. The next important thing on your list is finding somewhere clean, comfortable and affordable to stay. How about you give us a try? When you stay with us at Bear Crossing, we offer two and three bedroom luxury condos complete with a private balcony that overlooks like the beautiful banks of the little pigeon river.

If you’re looking to spend a day on property and get that rest and relaxation that you were hoping for while still having a good time, you’ll be so happy you chose to stay with us. We have an outdoor pool that is open from 8 am until 11 pm every single day. You can also grab a bit of sunshine in the lounge chairs at the pool area. One special thing about this particular property is that since it’s located on the little pigeon river, you can actually go swimming right on-site. During the spring and summer, you can see a lot of families actually going tubing right behind the condos. There’s nothing better than spending a relaxing day in the river. That cool water will beat any heat that’s happening outside. You all may never want to get out of the water after seeing feeling how refreshing it is! You can also fish right on property, all you need is a Tennessee Fishing License which you can pick up at the local Walmart.

Dollywood’s Splash Country will be open for business all summer long and we can guarantee you’ll be spending (at least) a day here! This family friendly water park is the definition of nonstop fun. With plenty of daring water slides for the biggest adrenaline junkies and plenty to do for the others that just want to relax, you all are sure to find something to enjoy while visiting. They have one of the best lazy rivers that you can find, and it even comes with a scenic view while you’re floating the day away. The kiddos are sure to fall in love with all the entertaining zones for them to play in that will include water slides and even a wave pool. Best of all, they also have slides that the whole family can go on together! Get ready to feel like you’re really out white water rafting in the mountains when you check out these special rides.

Pigeon Forge offers one of the most unique and fun attractions that you can find. If you’re looking for a new and exciting way to cool off, you’ll definitely want to visit the Outdoor Gravity Park! Climb, or should we say sprint, into your OGO (a big plastic ball with water inside of it) and get ready to roll down one of their three hills (or try out all three!) These were designed to make sure that there’s absolutely no tumbling once inside, so you get to enjoy a smooth and entertaining ride to the bottom. They also give you a go-pro to record your entire journey and you can watch them once you’re finished, they’re also available for purchase. You all will have a smile on your face from beginning to end, so make sure to add this special attraction to your list this summer!

It maybe summer time again, but that doesn’t mean you can’t see a bit of snow. Pigeon Forge has a brand new attraction that you won’t want to miss this season. Pigeon Forge Snow has come to town and with it comes year-round indoor snow tubing! You can buy an hour of tubing or they have a value pack that gets you an hour of tubing and snow play. They have a designated area filled with snow for the kiddos and the rest of the family to play in. Get ready to start a friendly snowball fight with your family in the middle of the summer or even build a snowman!
