DAY ONE – Sit back, relax and enjoy the rolling countryside of Kentucky, spectacular Tennessee landscapes, or chat with your seat-mate. With Pigeon Forge as our first stop, you may already know that it has historic roots that reach back to the days of young, pioneering America. The name “Pigeon Forge” evolved from two sources. “Pigeon” referred to the vast number of passenger pigeons that stopped along the river which flowed through the area to feed on the nuts of beech trees. “Forge” refers to Isaac Love’s Iron Works, built in 1820 on the east bank of the river. This evening enjoy the Feudin’ Feastin’ Family Fun at The Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Show™! Become part of the longest running feud in history and help the Hatfields and McCoys try to settle their differences mountain-style. Whether you’re city-folk or country cuzins, you’ll love the singing and dancin, mighty feats of strength, jaw dropping stunts and side-splitting comedy. There’s something here for everybody!
