You don't have to go to a big city to find big thrills. Some of the most interesting and unique attractions are often hidden away outside of the warn path in smaller towns waiting to be explored.

Cheapsim search around the country for the towns that are often overlooked, the destinations that are just as worth exploring as the big cities that draw in more tourists. To determine the list, the site "took into account towns with a range of attractive offerings, including cultural attractions, outdoor activities, great dining and shopping options, low cost of living, and high quality of life, among other factors."

According to the site, the most underrated town in Tennessee is Pigeon Forge, a small town outside of the popular destination of Gatlinburg that also has plenty of fun, family-friendly activities to enjoy and restaurants to visit. Here's what the site had to say about the most overlooked town in Tennessee:

"Smoosh together the Tennessee versions of Las Vegas and Disneyland, plop it in the middle of the most scenic stretch of the Great Smoky Mountains and you've got Pigeon Forge, home to Dolly Parton's wildly popular Dollywood. It is, first and foremost, a tourist destination, but the stunning natural scenery, charm and carnival-esque spectacle of the place is enough to make visitors decide to hang around."
