Family vacations can be a good time if you go to the right places. The spots around Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg can become crowded with tourists from all over the place, so you need to find those unique spots that won't be overpopulated. One of the most fun things to do in Tennessee is taking a trip to this adventure park.
Foxfire Mountain is located just outside of Pigeon Forge, Tennessee in Sevierville.
It's a place with so many outdoor adventures that you could easily spend your whole day there with no complaints from anyone in your party.
There are many different zipline adventures and even one that passes a few waterfalls on your way down the line.
You can also hop on a few ATVs that will take you through the mountain so you can really get the full experience.
One of the coolest experiences here is the large swinging bridge that resides here. If you're not a fan of heights you might want to skip this one, but the views will be totally worth it.
There are over 150 acres of land that this park sits on. On this land there are pristine forests, many creeks, waterfalls, vistas, cow and llama pastures and creek-side treks according to the website.
The large bridge that resides here is the longest swinging bridge in the entire United States, right here in Tennessee! It's longer than a football field and sits 70 feet above the river.
The entire bridge stretches from Foxfire Mountain across Dunn’s Gorge to Prosperity Mountain.
It may sway and be scary, but it can hold up to 24,000 pounds at one time. It's 400 feet long, so it may take a little while to walk completely across it. You'll probably stop many times to see what is going on below.
If you just want to experience the bridge, it's only $19.95 which also includes ziplining or ATV driving for full-on outdoors fun.
