Pigeon Forge Rod RunsImagine any one of the most beautiful cars made in the past 80 years, and you are likely to find it at the 2015 Pigeon Forge Fall Rod Run. Everything from circa 1932 Ford Model A hot rods to a brand new 1,200 horsepower V16 Bugatti Veyron can be seen there.

One thing you should definitely expect to see a lot of are ‘50s era cruisers and late ‘60s muscle cars.  Oh, and there are trucks. Big ones. Also motorcycles. Did we mention they have everything?

Come see how accurate that statement is September 17–19, 2015 at the fabulous LeConte Center in the heart of Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.


A Parade of Stunning Detroit Steel

While the main event has moved inside the LeConte Center, the biggest gathering will happen outside along the parkway. Thousands of classic car owners will be wheeling out their babies to bask in the sunlight and all the attention of the adoring motor-minded enthusiasts. Leading up to the beginning of the weekend you can see car after beautiful car both out on the street and tucked delicately under sheets on the backs of trailers.

Cars are allowed to stay parked for 72 straight hours before they are required to move in Pigeon Forge, and at no time is that law taken advantage of more than the Rod Runs. Many car owners get to Pigeon Forge incredibly early to stake out a spot along the parkway so that their vehicle can get as many eyes on them as possible.

Visitors without show cars also tend to nab parking spots as early as they can so they can tailgate and BBQ to make a true weekend out of it. Still, others set up lawn chairs and just enjoy the entertainment as it rolls by.

Of course, businesses in the area are just as eager to celebrate, so expect live bands and special events all weekend long in honor of the crowds and cars the Rod Run draws.


Pigeon Forge Rod Run LeConte CenterShowing Off the Best of the Beasts

Indoors at the LeConte Center is where the real event is. The absolute top cars all enter for their chance to win a share of the $10,000 cash prize.

Winning categories include “The Ultimate Five” and “The Top 25.” Sponsors and event promoters also get to designate their own special awards such as the “Best Hot Rod” award from Danny’s Rod Shop and the “Cool Pick” from 4th Day Ice Cream, which went to Roy Boroughs’ 1968 “Gold Nugget” color Mustang this spring. Door prizes are awarded to entrants as well.

A massive swap meet and vendor gathering make the event truly exciting for all attendees. Get everything from T-shirts honoring your favorite aftermarket brand to the aftermarket parts themselves at one of the countless booths set up there. Perhaps best of all, parking at the LeConte Center is absolutely free!


Book a Cabin in Pigeon Forge for the 2015 Fall Rod Run

The Rod Run events are extremely popular, so lodging fills up quickly. This problem is especially true among hotels along the parkway, where people want to be close to the action. As a tradeoff, being close to the action also means close to the engine noise. Since many of these classic cars have been tuned to be LOUD and they tend to run around all hours of the night, finding a cabin or hotel in Pigeon Forge off the beaten path may be a better alternative.

Find your perfect cabin in Pigeon Forge and book it today, because September 17th will be here before you know it!

If you intend on taking a journey up to the Smokies this autumn to catch a glimpse of the jaw-dropping hues that grace its ancient, rolling mountainsides, you may want to start planning that trip now. Fall is a peak season for Pigeon Forge and the Great Smoky Mountains. From October to Mid-November, throngs of crowds come to witness the Smokies bursting with fiery autumn colors.

Booking early guarantees you a spot amidst the crowd, and it may secure you a better rate. Planning your trip sooner rather than later can also mean less crowds but equally-gorgeous vistas since many families are knee-deep starting the school year during early autumn.

To help make your trip decisions easier, here is a guide to planning a trip in the Great Smoky Mountains during fall:


Do Your Homework When Booking Cabins

Make sure you look up aspects like where the cabin is located so that the image in your head of your perfect fall trip in the Smokies can meet the actual image of your cabin. Look up reviews, find your cabin on a map to see how far it is from amenities and use contact forms to ask lots of questions. With this preparation out of the way, you can be truly excited about booking your perfect cabin in the Great Smoky Mountains.


Look up the Best Trails, Vistas and Guided Tours

Pigeon Forge and the Great Smoky Mountains offer countless opportunities to gaze upon the vibrant fall foliage. In fact, there are so many choices that you should narrow down where exactly you are going in to soak in all of the breathtaking imagery.

You could drive along Newfound Gap Road or Cades Cove Loop Road to see the trees from the comfort of your own car. You can also hike up Clingman’s Dome, Laurel Falls, Mt. Leconte or other trails to peek out from the trees over majestic vistas saturated with fall colors. If you are in downtown Gatlinburg, the Space Needle offers similar views overlooking the mountain sides below.

An alternate strategy is to beat the crowds by seeking out hidden gems like Rich Mountain Road, Greenbrier or the Foothills Parkway.


Plan for Your Fun-Filled Nights

Years ago, the Smoky Mountains were the only draw in Pigeon Forge. While they definitely have tons of natural beauty to offer, once the parks closed at dusk visitors may have been wondering what else they could do.

Since then, the area around Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg has thankfully filled up with businesses catering to the entertainment needs of day hikers whose daylight has faded. Look up which delicious restaurants you will go to during your stay and all of the amazing things to do in Pigeon Forge.

We hope this guide inspired you to begin planning your vacation and, above all, to book a cabin in Pigeon Forge well in advance of the crowds. You will be glad you did when you witness the mountainsides lit up in one of the biggest explosions of color you have ever seen.
