I know it's really hard to get those who think climbing LeCont backwards in snow is a good afternoons relaxation to believe it, but Dollywood brings a lot to our community! And more than just traffic!
25 years ago, Dollywood was the old Silver Dollar City where my sisters and I came to mine gold and gems, and just look at her now! This year Dollywood was Tennessee's number 1 attraction, and won the top award in the amusement park industry-- the Applause Award from the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions. The award is given every two years, and Disney and Universal have received the award in past years. In giving the award, the extraordinary friendliness of the staff and cleanliness of the park combined with a dedicated leadership committed to family values was cited.
As Dollywood continues to grow and develop, so does it's group of return visitors. Cabins for sale in the area do very well in rental income. In addition, Dollywood itself has opened it's own overnight rental company "Dollywood Vacations" that feature the cabins for sale in Starr Crest Resort. It's a good time to invest in Pegeon Forge!
