Christ is risen! The most glorious Sunday of the year gets more glorious each subsequent year here in the Great Smoky Mountains where we have a large and incredible Christian base of spirituality and devotion, and many of our tourism hotspots absolutely celebrate it as part of their contribution to our visitors’ desire for an unforgettable Spring vacation with the family in the Smokies. On a good, sunny Sunday day, places like The Mountain Mile and The Old Mill become good ideas to have a mild, yet active, spread where families can enjoy the grassy square, onsite games, or split up and look at the shops that have their interest. A trip to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park for a little drive through nature is often an Easter activity for many locals and visitors as well.

But the one thing most people want to know around his time of the year, the question we see posted probably the most when it comes to Easter Sunday, is “what restaurants are expected to be open after service in the Smokies?” Most likely, many of the restaurants in Pigeon Forge will be expected to be open and in operation for breakfast, lunch and dinner, but that knowledge is not always helpful for visitors who have already seen the hundreds of quality eateries we have and are actually looking for some help in narrowing the choices down.
