The Mountain Mile offers shopping, dining and entertainment in Pigeon Forge

PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (WVLT) – The Mountain Mile is a shopping district reinvestment in Pigeon Forge.

The area near Teaster Lane was formerly a vacant mall and is home to Downtown Flavortown and Junciton 35 for groceries or REI for shopping and Escapeology for fun.

“Just a unique experience and just plain fun that we pride ourselves on here at Pigeon Forge, and certainly something when you think back to the early ’80s and ’90s,” said Assistant City Manager Eric Brackins.

“The owners have redeveloped it and transformed it into something unlike anything else in our community,” said Leon Downey, tourism director of Pigeon Forge.

Thrill rides will take you 200 feet in the air and drop you at 60 mph for a lifetime. The Mountain Monster is for the adventurous in you.

The Listening Room is another option for dining and entertainment.

“The Listening Room in Nashville just celebrated its 16th anniversary, which was founded years ago by Chris Blair, our founder, with the intention of showcasing each songwriter’s individual story behind the songs,” said Mary Holliday of The Listening Room . “Our venue here is an intimate setting that allows us to focus more on the author himself and the stories behind the song.”

REI Pigeon Forge is a place to get ready for your next hike.

“This layering is so important. So your first layer, your base layer as we call it, is supposed to be sweat-wicking. This will help you stay cool. So no cotton is a big thing that a lot of people don’t think about and maybe aren’t prepared, you know, for that active holiday and hygiene and whatnot. But you can use synthetics or wool, anything that pulls that moisture away from your skin and helps you feel more comfortable when you’re out there,” said REI’s Cameron Campbell.

Dozens of shops, restaurants and entertainment venues are just the beginning of this new development.
