Spend A Spectacular Autumn Vacation At Dollywood

in Christmas
Just because the calendar says summer is over doesn't mean the fun has to end. At Dollywood, the good times are just getting started. Heart-thumping adventure rides, soul-soothing gospel music, and award-winning variety shows are just some of the activities you'll enjoy during your stay at Tennessee's favorite theme park. From early spring until the snow flies and beyond Dollywood provides wholesome entertainment and plenty of fun for the entire family.

Gorgeous Scenery

Nestled in the hills surrounding Pigeon Forge, Dollywood is a surprising blend of modern theme park and old-fashioned country living. The Village bustles with activity from the train depot to the Demolition Derby, and the Wonder Wheel offers a bird's-eye view of the surrounding countryside. On the far side of Dreamland Forest you'll find a rollicking good time with roller coasters, white-water rafting, and Timber Tower, while Craftsman's Valley is a shopper's dream. Surrounding it all is the splendor of the Great Smoky Mountains, where autumn paints the trees in vibrant shades of red and yellow, and the crisp air is filled with the smells of harvest.

Beautiful Voices

Speaking of harvest, over on Showstreet, music lovers will enjoy a variety of styles from gospel to musical magic acts. The highlight of autumn is the Southern Gospel and Harvest Celebration, featuring more than 60 performers all lifting their voices in praise. You'll love hearing your old favorites again and learning new songs as well. The celebration lasts the entire month of October, so there's plenty of time to spend a few days listening to these talented artists and enjoying the cool mountain air at Dollywood.

Winter Wonderland

While the rest of the world prepares for the coming winter, Dollywood is gearing up for a great Christmas in the Smokies. Starting in November, Showstreet comes alive with Christmas lights and music to thrill your entire family. See the classic, Babes in Toyland, performed live on stage. A cast of twenty brings this beloved children's story to life with colorful sets, stunning acrobatics, and of course, marching toy soldiers. Guaranteed to mesmerize even the tiniest of tots, this is one Christmas tradition that's not to be missed.

Make sure to head to Rivertown Junction as the sun goes down for a spectacular display of twinkling lights and classic Christmas carols. Your heart will be filled with the holiday spirit as millions of colored lights dance to the notes of cherished songs from your youth. Start a new tradition with your own children, and visit this wonderland at Christmas time.

If you think theme parks are strictly summertime fun, you're in for a surprise this fall at Dollywood. Tennessee's favorite daughter, Dolly Parton, has built a family-friendly attraction guaranteed to please everyone from toddler to grandparent nearly any time of year. When the mornings turn cooler, it's time to head south and enjoy the hospitality and down-home country fun at this one-of-a-kind amusement park.
