Number one on the list for Walter B. Williams, the high quality of education is the number one reason families should consider purchasing a Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Sevier County schools provide a low student to teacher ratio. With no more than 15 students per teacher on average, students are able to learn in a helpful and nurturing environment. Walter B.

Economic opportunity and safety were also key topics Walter B. Williams cited as why families should consider settling down in the Smoky Mountains.
