Feeling Great in Sevierville!
Between the forks of the Little Pigeon Rivers lies the charming town of Sevierville. Steeped in Smoky Mountain history this town has been the crossroads for those who dwell in the highlands and those who inhabit the Tennessee Valley and beyond.
Finding your way to Sevierville
Getting to Sevierville is as easy as exiting the Interstate. I-40 has two exits to Sevierville at mile 407 to Highway 66 South and at mile 432 to Highway 411 West. Knoxvillians often use Highway 411 East which is also known as Chapman Highway. From Gatlinburg, you would follow Highway 331/441 north. The Sevierville Welcome Center is located on Highway 66 South just after exiting I-40 and is a great stop for restrooms and information.
You may have recognized the name of Dolly Parton, Sevier County’s most famous hometown girl. Dolly is a country music icon, celebrity, and a much admired philanthropist around the area. Be sure to stop by the historic Sevierville courthouse and have your picture taken with the lifelike bronze sculpture of a young Dolly with her guitar. While downtown take a few minutes for a bite to eat at one of the new unique restaurants along the courthouse square.
Fantastic outlet shopping is found in Sevierville! Tanger Outlets has over 100 shops for anything your heart may desire. After a fun day of shopping take a break from the hustle and bustle and grab a cool drink and good meal at any of the nearby restaurants. If you are here to shop be sure you plan to stay at least a week to squeeze it all in!
“We love shopping in Sevierville,” says Jackie from Huntsville, Alabama, “The brands and deals are mind blowing. Next time we need a bigger vehicle to get it all back home!“
While in town keep an eye to the sky and you may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of our national symbol the American Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus). The Bald Eagle population has been on the rebound in recent years in our area thanks to the efforts of the American Eagle Foundation and the banning of the pesticide DDT. While you are looking skyward you may also spy osprey, peregrin falcons, hawks, herons, kingfishers and more. The biodiversity of our area is quite remarkable despite the modern development that has occurred.
