Hello, fellow travelers! Today, I want to share with you a hidden gem nestled in the heart of Pigeon Forge, Tennessee – Parrot Mountain and Gardens. Join me, Mr. Bill an avid traveler with a unique perspective as a below-the-knee amputee, as we explore this enchanting destination that promises a symphony of colors, melodies, and tropical wonders.

Chapter 1: The Journey Begins

As I made my way to Parrot Mountain and Gardens, I couldn’t help but feel a sense of excitement. The lush greenery and vibrant flowers that lined the entrance immediately set the tone for what would be an extraordinary experience. I won’t lie, steep, uneven terrain is difficult for me to navigate. The wonderful staff at the ticket booth realized that, and brought us a golf cart and driver to help us navigate the entire facility!

Chapter 2: A Tropical Oasis 

Upon entering the gardens, we were transported to a tropical paradise. The vibrant blooms and exotic foliage created a breathtaking backdrop. What truly sets Parrot Mountain apart is its collection of over 70 species of tropical birds, each with its own unique charm. As I strolled through the winding paths, the vibrant plumage and melodic chirps of the parrots provided a sensory feast that even my prosthetic limb couldn’t help but dance along to.

 

Chapter 4: Up-Close Encounters

One of the highlights of my visit was the opportunity for up-close encounters with the parrots. The staff arranged for me to interact with some of the birds, allowing me to appreciate their intelligence and vibrant personalities. These interactions added a personal touch to my experience and left me with fond memories.

Chapter 5: Feeding Frenzy

Parrot Mountain offers visitors the chance to feed these feathered friends. With a small cup of bird feed in hand, I marveled at the parrots’ gentle nature as they perched on my arm or shoulder to enjoy a snack. The joy of these interactions brought a smile to my face, creating a bond between man and bird that transcended physical differences.
