Romance in the Mountains
Besides being a go-to for mountain weddings, Pigeon Forge is also a favorite with honeymooners. Do-it-all chapels make wedding planning easy, and cabins within minutes of the Parkway are perfect for couples who want to relax in the cabin and explore downtown. Couples can enjoy wine and moonshine tastings, walks in some of the lovely parks in Pigeon Forge, or great meals of steak, barbecue, or Southern staples.
At the cabin, get ready for an in-cabin massage (ask our vacation planners when booking your cabin), have a soothing soak in the hot tub, cozy up in front of a wood-burning fireplace with a cup of hot cocoa, or climb into a comfy king-size bed to watch TV before drifting off to sleep.

You can do some fishing in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park (all the streams are open now!), check out a game at Rocky Top Sports World, get your adrenaline pumping on a whitewater rafting tour, or just check out the bars and restaurants downtown.
Guys will also love hanging out the cabin, where many boast big screen TVs or even private home theaters with surround sound and Blu-ray players – perfect for a ball game or a movie night.
