Smoky Mountains Area Features

Sevierville... Where Smoky Mountain Fun Begins

  By: Olga Wierbicki

Welcome to Sevierville, the eighth oldest town in the state of Tennessee. Founded in 1795, Sevierville (Se-veer-ville) is named after the first governor of Tennessee, John Sevier, a Revolutionary War hero. Sevier County is also home to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. While Sevierville may not have the name recognition that Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg do, Sevierville offers a wealth of attractions unrivaled in the area. 

Shopping - Sevierville is home to the area’s largest outlet mall – Tanger Outlets Sevierville, which has over 120 high-end name brand outlets ranging from Ann Taylor to Old Navy. Sevierville also has numerous flea markets and antiques malls. You’ll find unique stores such as the Scrapbook Superstore, which has the largest scrapbook inventory in the US; the Apple Barn Cider Mill and General Store, which is a working apple farm with two restaurants on-site; and Smoky Mountain Knife Works, a knife museum and the world’s  largest knife store, with hundreds of knives for hunting, cooking and more.

Sports - Sevierville is a mecca for a variety of outdoor sports activities ranging from family fun at the Smokies Stadium to adventure ziplining. Adrenaline Park has a good introductory ziplining course over the French Broad River, while Goliath at Foxfire Mountain Adventure Park is the highest and fastest zipline east of the Mississippi. Golfers will enjoy the two courses at the Sevierville Golf Club, while fishermen will find lots of bass, crappie, catfish and more at Douglas Lake. Go horseback riding at Adventure Park at Five Oaks or take a Scenic Helicopter ride and see the Smokies from above! Visitors will also find items perfect for camping and hiking at Bass Pro Shop Outdoor World. 

Education - Learning can be fun even on vacation. Three very popular educational attractions in Sevierville are: the Tennessee Museum of Aviation, which has exhibits about the history of flight and and numerous vintage planes; Rainforest Adventures Discovery Zoo, with over 600 animals from the rainforests of the world including turtles and monkeys; and Forbidden Caverns, where  you can see a spectacular underground cavern  and learn about its natural wonders and local moonshine history. 

And much more - You’ll find so much to  discover and enjoy in Sevierville, whether you’re looking for some simple fun at the mini-golf courses, a delicious meal at one of the area’s  many fine restaurants, or a good night’s sleep  in Sevierville’s hotels and log cabins.
