There’s seemingly never a shortage of new attractions and restaurants popping up in the Great Smoky Mountains area.
In fact, it seems like just yesterday we were putting a new attractions list together, and it’s already time for another one!
If you’re planning a trip to Pigeon Forge or Sevierville, make sure to add these new restaurants and attractions to your to do list. We want to be sure to give them a good, Smoky Mountain welcome.
Without further ado, here are four brand new attractions, restaurants and hotels coming soon to Pigeon Forge and Sevierville:
4. Toy Box Mini Golf (Pigeon Forge)
Toy Box Mini Golf is a brand new mini golf course coming soon to the Great Smoky Mountains in Pigeon Forge.
This new attraction is said to be the world’s very first toy-themed mini golf course, where kids of all ages can enjoy a toy wonderland filled with larger-than-life toy displays.
The course will include 18 holes of themed mini golf, a toy store (obviously), a laser maze, snacks and giant toy photo opportunities.

The DreamCatcher Hotel will feature 12,000 square feet of meeting and convention space, a rooftop restaurant/lounge and 200 guest rooms.
“The Pigeon Forge property launches a new milestone in our company, opening as the first hotel under our brand name,” said Zeke Cooper, President of DreamCatcher Franchise Development.
“Our tribal partners share our bold vision of developing and investing in unique and innovative hospitality properties, located in areas we know people want to visit. We are excited and humbled by their investment and trust.”

Azul Cantina will offer a Mexican Cantina menu, as its name suggests, and will have a rooftop bar where guests will be able to soak in the views of the Great Smoky Mountains from Pigeon Forge.
It isn’t the only highly anticipated restaurant coming soon to the Mountain Mile. This and the Guy Fieri’s Downtown Flavortown are two highly anticipated eateries coming soon to this shopping complex.
What other new restaurants are coming to the Smoky Mountains?
In case ya missed it, the Crazy Mason Milkshake Bar is also expected to open very soon in Gatlinburg.
Last but not least, Company Distilling is also making its way to Townsend and Alcoa shortly. The Alcoa location will be a “city center” of sorts, offering outdoor entertainment for the family.
