4 Fun Things To See & Do In Downtown Sevierville TN #travel #ad #SeviervilleEat Play Rock

When visiting the Great Smoky Mountains, one might not thinking about adding downtown Sevierville to their itinerary. On my recent media trip there, we went to downtown Sevierville for a bit and I saw a couple things that I think you should be sure to check out next time you head to that area of Tennessee.

Courthouse Donuts

First, we went to Courthouse Donuts. The owners worked hard to come up with the perfect flavors and textures to keep coming back. They even consulted the culinary school at Walters State Community College for help. And what they came up with is hundreds of great flavor combinations to keep you trying something new every time you visit. You can even design your own from all of the toppings they have. I tried the Key Lime Pie Donut and it was, not only fabulous, but actually tastes like Key Lime Pie. Yum.

The Dolly Parton Statue

Many people visit the nearby area of Pigeon Forge to see Dollywood. But, if you were not already aware, Dolly Parton is from Sevierville so there is much to see in Sevier County about the songstress as well. The Dolly Parton statue, created by local artist Jim Gray was dedicated in 1987. You can find it on the lawn of the Sevier County Courthouse. Parton claimed this as her proudest moment so any true fan needs to make this a must see.

Sevier County Courthouse

The Sevier County Courthouse was built in 1896 and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. It is a beautiful example of Victorian architecture so all of you that love vintage style buildings will love this. The Dolly Parton statue is located right on the lawn of the courthouse and just minutes from Courthouse Donuts, so it’s easy to see it all in just a short walk.
