Sevierville is the city that names our famous county and offers some interesting counter-balance to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Although Sevierville is a city much more oriented for local business, Sevierville has its own share of reasons to go out. Wears Valley is technically and legally part of the city of Sevierville as well, but on this page we’ll talk about what’s further out from Wears Valley that would made an awesome day trip!
How Far From Wears Valley Is Sevierville? Wears Valley is Sevierville, technically, but the area we’re talking about is about 30-40 minutes away with some of these attractions being another 5-20 minutes from there. To get to downtown Sevierville, which is where we’ll center here, the easiest way is to drive to Pigeon Forge and turn left at Stoplight #3, drive straight for about 10 minutes, turn left at Forks Of The River parkway, and then turn right a couple minutes after that to be in downtown Sevierville.
