Romantic Ideas in the Smokies: 7 Ways to Reconnect

1. Have a movie night – in your cozy cabin.
Movie night out is fun, but it’s not always romantic. Sitting next to strangers, sticky floors, popcorn spilled everywhere, no chance to take a break and talk…it’s not exactly ideal for rekindling romance. But what about a movie night in the cabin?! Several of our Pigeon Forge, TN Cabins have movie rooms with theater-style seating, and fully equipped kitchens mean you can pop your own popcorn, elevate your movie-night snack game, and have your favorite sodas or cocktails at your fingertips. You can even stop by the local winery and grab a bottle to enjoy with a romantic comedy!

2. Spend a day on the Rocky Top Wine Trail.
Made up of 5 local wineries, Rocky Top Wine Trail boasts 75+ wine varieties to try. Start at whichever winery you’d like, grab a “passport” when you start, and get it stamped along the way. You’ll receive a souvenir wine glass after 3 wineries and another gift if you visit all 5! For those 21 and over, it’s a fun and romantic way to explore the Smokies – and check out the tastes of the mountains!

They even have a NEW VIP experience, which includes personalized visits via shuttle to Mountain Valley Winery, Mill Bridge Winery, and Hillside Winery; 6 free samples at each location; 15% discount; free cheese tray at Hillside Winery; swag bag; one-time ID check; and VIP tasting room service!

Wineries along the trail:
• Hillside Winery

• Apple Barn Cider House
• Mill Bridge Winery
• Apple Barn Winery
• Mountain Valley 

3. Ride the Great Smoky Mountain Wheel.
Located at The Island in downtown Pigeon Forge, the Great Smoky Mountain Wheel is the perfect spot to steal a kiss, check out the views of the Parkway, or even pop the question! The 200-foot-tall wheel features all-glass gondolas with great views – and it even lights up at night! If you’re looking to spark some romance, get dressed up, hold hands, and enjoy a romantic ride.

4 . Renew your vows.
Weddings are at the top of the list for reasons people visit the Smokies. The backdrop of the Smoky Mountains paired with charming wedding chapels is a sure bet for the special day. So if you’re already married and wanting to rekindle the romance, plan a vow renewal in Pigeon Forge, TN!

5. Take a hike.
The Great Smoky Mountains National Park – just down the road from Pigeon Forge – is the most visited national park in the U.S. National Parks System. Why? It’s a combination of factors. First, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is one of the more centrally located national parks in the country. Second, it boasts 800+ miles of trails across Tennessee and North Carolina. Third, it’s home to a huge variety of flora, fauna, historic buildings, and varying landscape of mountains, fields, valleys, and streams. It’s also a great place to reconnect, whether it’s on a peaceful hike, a picnic by a cool mountain stream, or with a scenic drive.

6. Break out of prison.
Okay, not real prison. We’re talking about breaking out at The Escape Game in Pigeon Forge’s The Island. If you want to reconnect and have some fun in a less traditional way, this is an awesome option! You and your love (or a group of friends) will be locked in a room for 1 hour. You have to solve puzzles, find clues, decode messages, and use your skills to figure out how to break out before the time runs out.

7. Cozy up in the cabin.
You’ll find plenty of romantic and fun things to do in downtown Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, but one way to reconnect and enjoy some romance is by staying in the cabin! Outfitted with plenty of conveniences, our cabins feature fully equipped kitchens, comfortable bedrooms, and extras like big screen TVs, Wi-Fi, Blu-ray and DVD players, game tables, board games, decks with mountain views, outdoor hot tubs, indoor jetted tubs, dining tables for romantic in-cabin meals, and so much more. Some cabins even have private indoor pools and home theaters! With all that, you won’t even have to leave the cabin if you don’t want to! Just spend a weekend cozied up, reading books, playing games, looking at old photos, and reconnecting in the Smokies.
