Nearby Wears Valley

dscn8868Chances are, when you came in to Townsend, you came in from Pigeon Forge – and that would mean you came through Wears Valley, Tennessee and probably wondered what this interesting cluster of activity was so far out from Pigeon Forge.

Well, Wears Valley isn’t a settled town so much as it is an incorporated one. It is like a real village in between the two cities, but Wears Valley is not just something that’s in-between, Wears Valley is very similar to the Arts and Crafts Community of Gatlinburg with a healthy dose of Townsend quiet and dignity for good measure.

In this lovely area, you’ll find Fall Festivals, National Park information, fishing equipment, awesome Southern restaurants, arts and crafts and antiques, antiques, antiques! And there’s lots of excellent accommodation options as well.

If you want to stay close to Pigeon Forge without getting Pigeon Forge’s level of traffic and get out everything Townsend has to offer without driving for 30 minutes, Wears Valley is where you want to go! Here’s what you can look forward to in this quaint little hamlet.
