2. Parrot Mountain and Gardens
Another one of the Smoky Mountain attractions that is perfect for a church retreat is Parrot Mountain and Gardens in Pigeon Forge! This delightful attraction is situated on 4 acres of beautiful landscaped gardens and features hundreds of gorgeous tropical birds, as well as thousands of flowers, plants, and trees! Your church group will be particularly interested in the Garden of Eden, which is truly a slice of heaven on earth! This lovely area of the park contains scriptures along landscaped trails and a prayer garden where you can enjoy the peaceful surroundings of the praying angels and other statuary.
3. Southern Gospel Museum and Hall of Fame
The Southern Gospel Museum and Hall of Fame pays homage to the roots of Southern gospel music, many of which began right in the rolling hills of East Tennessee! During a tour of the museum, you will learn about the pioneers who took gospel music out of the Bible belt and into the homes of families from around the world! The museum also explains how gospel legends paved the way for many of your favorite contemporary artists that can be heard on Christian radio today. The museum is situated inside of the Dollywood theme park and admission is included as part of your paid ticket into the park. While at Dollywood, your church group may also be interested in the Robert F. Thomas Chapel! This adorable chapel is named in honor of the doctor who delivered little Dolly Rebecca Parton and offers services every Sunday when the park is open.
