Explore Downtown Sevierville: Top 6 Places to Visit
If you’ve never taken the time to explore downtown Sevierville, it’s worth a visit on your next vacation in the Smoky Mountains. The streets are calmer than those of downtown Gatlinburg, and the area has plenty of delicious restaurants, boutiques, specialty shops, and more waiting for you to visit. Whether you want to enjoy a meal, get some shopping done, or get pampered at a salon, you can do it all in Sevierville. Here are the top 6 places to visit in downtown Sevierville:
1. The Appalachian
The Appalachian offers some of the best fine dining in the Smokies! It opened in January of 2021 and has quickly become a downtown favorite among both locals and visitors.

On the menu, you’ll find a variety of dry age steaks, glazed duck, rainbow trout, and more. The Appalachian also serves up signature spirits and cocktails to pair with your meal!

2. The Dolly Parton Statue
No trip to downtown Sevierville is complete without a visit to the Dolly Parton statue! Who would pass up the chance to snap a photo with our Smoky Mountain hometown hero? The statue is located on the lawn in front of the beautiful Sevier County Courthouse. It’s a great tribute to the Queen of Country!
