We are heading to Pigeon Forge next week for vacation, I have noticed many SE members on here and wondering things to do and where could I do some boat shopping also.

I did find ABC in Knoxville looks like 45 minute drive

This is our first trip to TN

Thanks for any replies

I don't think you'll have any shortage of things to do in Pigen Forge, it reminds me of Wisco Dells they have everything from slides, to go carts, to bars, etc. I was there for work so I didn't get out much during the day but all in all it was a pretty cool place.

You won't be very far from the factory in Pigeon Forge either. I would definitely contact them and try to get a tour scheduled.

thanks for the info, coming from central IA. I am also trying to plan a stop at a dealer in Farmer Illinois (liquid edge). thanks for all the info Cloaked

we did find out Dollyworld is closed until the 23rd when we leave, I did find Douglas lake and a boat rental place but the water is probably freezing.

Dont waste time looking at another dealer unless there is a specfic boat you are buying.

Take a day and head to the Vonore area.

Make calls and set up some factory tours for the day.
Mastercraft and Malibu for hand built boats. Bayliner is right there too, so see how mass production differs.
If you have an OJ prop, look it over. OJ is right next to MC. I let them know I was coming and they had my prop refinished by the time we completed the MC tour.

I found the dealer in Farmingon on only inboards, no dealers in my area. they only sell I/O's

I stopped at liquid edge in Farmington and ABC on the way out today. Both nice places and had plenty of new boats to look at. Not much for used boats. If you are ever near Farmington I would stop by pretty cool place with his own private lake.

I few of the guys on our lake get slalom training every year down there at Liquid Edge. Nothing but praises for the dealer/owner. I may stop down there for some training this year.

Quick fact, my wife is from Illinois, most of those lakes you see like the one at Liquid Edge along the interstate in IL are bascially holes that filled with water from ecavating for the interstates.

Each person family has their own preferences, but if you have the time. The Biltmore House (built by the Vanderbilt Family) is INCREDIBLE, a little pricey, and a 2 hr drive from PF (Asheville, NC), but it is a truly incredible place.

I spotted several images of the Biltmore house but we never made it there. We kept pretty busy in the Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg area

The owner of Liquid Edge spent about 1 1/2 hrs talking to me about boats, I could have stayed all day but we needed to get back on the road. I would like to go back in the summer
