Best of all, we offer FREE TICKETS to numerous shows and attractions in the area for you to enjoy while you’re in town! That’s over $275 in savings per day, talk about an incredible deal! One of my favorite romantic spots to visit happens to be included in that package, but we’ll get to that in a moment! I think it’s time to take a look at some romance in the area, join us on this guide to a special Date Night in Pigeon Forge!

One of my favorite things to do when I’m enjoying a date night with my special someone is visit some of the many amazing wineries in the area! The one I always seem to visit is the Apple Barn Winery. I love the atmosphere there and they truly have some of the best wine I’ve had in the area so far. There is nothing more romantic than sampling some homemade wines with the one that you love while taking in some of the beautiful views of the mountains. The customer service here can’t be beat, they’re funny, and they always offer something new to try that coincides with the season. They also always have amazing specials and discounts, so you both can pick out the perfect wine to take back to the condo with you to enjoy over a romantic dinner if you decide to make some with your full sized kitchen in the unit! You can also do a little window shopping and even grab a bite to eat at the Apple Barn Farmhouse Restaurant and Grill, where they have some seats that feature a swinging patio like chair, talk about adorable and romantic!  If you’re not too hungry, you can stop and share an ice cream cone all in the same location of the winery, this spot just can’t be beat when you’re looking for something special to do when you’re in town.

One of the most romantic things to do when you’re visiting Pigeon Forge with your special someone is to go and see the views. One of the best places to go to see them is at The Island! Best part about this spot? You can walk to it from your condo. Get ready to holds hands as you pass through this beautifully decorated area, especially in the winter with all the Christmas decor! Here you will find the Great Smoky Mountain Wheel, an enclosed ferris wheel that is heated if it’s too cold outside. It’s time to see some of the most fantastic and beautiful views of our Smokies from way up above! I recommend doing this one at night so you can see the entire parkway lit up with millions of Christmas lights, it will make for an unforgettable date night! Remember that perk that I told you we’d talk about in a moment? This is it! You get a free adult ticket to this attraction during each day of your stay. It’s time to cuddle up and enjoy the scenery here, it’s absolutely breathtaking and will make for a moment that you’ll remember for a lifetime!

Don’t leave the Island too soon, there are still plenty of other things to enjoy while you’re there! Head on over to the Ole Smoky Moonshine Distillery, grab a rocking chair outside of the entrance, and get ready to tap your feet and rock along to some fantastic complimentary bluegrass music! You and your sweetheart can even get up and do a little dancing if you’re feeling extra romantic! One of my favorite moments where was seeing a bunch of older couples get up and start dancing, and even the younger ones started to join in. It was such a cute moment and one I will never forget. This is, hands down, one of the most special spots to visit when you’re in town. Another exciting event to see while you’re here is their incredible Island Show Fountain! Grab a chair and get ready to see an orchestra of colors as the water dances along to a wide array of music. It’s an adorable show that you and your partner are sure to both love, so don’t forget to check it out and sway along with the tunes!

It’s time for a nice dinner, and don’t you worry, if you don’t feel like doing any cooking yourself, there are plenty of places to choose from to dine at! I recommend visiting the Pottery House Cafe and Grille, this cute and quaint spot offers some of the best food around that you and your date are sure to love. From soups and salads to delicious steaks, you’re sure to find something to maybe even share with one another. Best part of this spot? Once you’re done with your meal, you can take a romantic stroll through Patriot Park and see all the Christmas decorations they have up for the season! You’ll feel like you’re walking through a winter wonderland, and who knows, maybe you’ll get lucky and it’ll snow why you’re here (we can all hope!) This is another place that you can go and share an ice cream cone, one of my most favorite things to do on date night! Make sure to save some room after your meal so you can visit the Old Mill Creamery for some sweets to share with your sweetheart. Talk about a great night out!
