Best Spring Date Ideas in Pigeon Forge

Published Apr 20, 2021

Spring is the perfect time to enjoy all that Pigeon Forge has to offer with your special someone. Here are 8 great date ideas to help you make the most of this beautiful season:

1. Get your Thrills on a Mountain Coaster

“Gravity coasters” are a local specialty! Get your blood pumping as you sail downhill, then compare notes on your wild ride. Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster boasts the longest downhill run in the country. Rocky Top Mountain Coaster features four themed tunnels. For theme park thrills with more than 50 rides, head to Dollywood.

2. Take a Scenic Drive

There are few things more romantic than enjoying the stunning Smoky Mountain scenery with your sweetheart. Take a leisurely drive down the scenic Newfound Gap Road or go for a more adventurous ride on the Tail of the Dragon.

3. Picnic at Patriot Park

Grab takeout and head for this park nestled by the Little Pigeon River. Walk the trail, watch the state flags wave in the breeze, watch the ducks and pigeons, and revel in a restful date away from the bustle of downtown.

4. Rent a Romantic Cabin

If roughing it is not your idea of a romantic getaway, rent a secluded Pigeon Forge cabin in the woods. Most cabins come with all the amenities you need for a comfortable stay, including fireplaces and hot tubs.

5. Dine Deliciously

Whether you’re on a blue jeans date or a dress-and-suit date, Pigeon Forge has the ideal restaurant. Try Brazilian cuisine at Gaucho Urbano. Eat Southern fare in a historic setting at The Old Mill. Head to the Bullfish Grill for seafood, beef, and a great wine and spirits list.

6. Play Tourist

There’s no better way to get to know your partner than by playing tourist for a day. Visit some of the top attractions in Pigeon Forge, such as the TitanicWonderWorks, or Hollywood Wax Museum.

7. See a Show

Hear classic and modern hits at Country Tonite. Laugh together at the Comedy Barn. Pick a show at the Grand Majestic Theater, where you can catch performances featuring everything from Motown to 1960s pop to Elvis songs.

8. Experience a Spectacular View

A nighttime ride on the Great Smoky Mountain Wheel gives you and your sweetheart a sparkling view. Cuddle up in your enclosed gondola as you rise 200 feet into the air for an unforgettable date.

No matter what you decide to do, Pigeon Forge is the perfect place to spend some quality time with your special someone this spring. After your date, come home to your romantic Pigeon Forge cabin rental.
