If you’ve ever seen Forrest Gump and are planning on visiting Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg, TN then you have to check out Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. It’s a nostalgic salute to the movie that became an instant classic. Inside you’ll find a giftshop that has a ton of merchandise featuring Forrest Gump, Bubba Gump, shrimp, and even Jenny. There are signs, quotes, and all sorts of memories from the movie that remind you of all the good things in life…like…sweet tea! If you’re not a fan of shrimp, don’t worry. They have all sorts of items on the menu. I highly suggest the “Boat Trash”…don’t ask…just get it if you like fried seafood! Bubba Gump’s opened on June 16, 2007 right on the parkway in downtown Gatlinburg at traffic light No. 8 on the corner of the Parkway and the Historic Nature Trail Road. Definitely make this one of your places to eat in Gatlinburg during your next visit. It’s probably one of the only restaurants that you’ll tell all the friends and family about back home!
