April is when all the best parts of Springfest in the Smokies come together to bring a peak season of incredible beauty and special events going on in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Everything is blooming right now and the colors are so rich, you'll need to bring more than one camera to capture it all!
At Sidney James, we offer convenience to everything you want to see in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge and luxury to come home to once you're done for the day. We offer a range of rooms courtside, with jacuzzis, pet-friendly rooms, cabins, and more. Whether you want to go out to Dollywood for the Festival of Nations and the Wild Eagle Rollercoaster, or if you want to go downtown for Ribsfest, you will never be far away from the action at Sidney James.
