Looking for a couples’ getaway? In Pigeon Forge, you can wine and dine, enjoy a show, tour the Smokies, and play games together like kids. Here are five romantic ideas.
1. Visit a local winery
What could be more romantic than tasting unique, local wines at a lovely winery? The Rocky Top Wine Trail guides you to five wineries offering 75 wines. Visit on your own, or get your itinerary for a self-guided tour taking in the Mountain Valley Winery, Hillside Winery, Apple Barn Winery, Mill Bridge Winery, and The Apple Barn Cider House.
2. Relax by the fountains
Wander through The Island shopping, dining, and entertainment complex, and stop for a soaring water show. Every half hour the Island Show Fountains shoot off liquid fireworks set to music. You can even admire the show from your table at nearby restaurants.
3. Take a private Jeep tour
Glide through the Smokies in an open-topped Jeep driven by your personal guide. Pink Adventure Tours offers four treks so you can pick the one that fits your romantic style.
The Newfound Gap tour takes you to a stunning viewpoint and stops at other lookouts for vistas and photos. The Valley and Views tour takes you to hilltop highs and valley lows. Adventurous couples should check out the Roaring Fork tour, where a nature drive includes off-road trekking. The Foothills Parkway tour rolls through spectacular views of the Smokies and the Tennessee Valley. A wide choice of times lets you fit a morning tour or a late-afternoon jaunt before your romantic dinner.
4. Dinner at a Brazilian steakhouse
For dinner with a difference, try Pigeon Forge’s only Brazilian steakhouse, Gaucho Urbano. Choose from 16 different cuts of meats, and add hot side dishes, a gourmet salad bar, and specials like stroganoff.

Friendly competition adds a spark to a romantic getaway. Show your skill on the rooftop or indoor mini-golf courses at Crave Golf Club in Pigeon Forge. Try mini-bowling (no special shoes needed, so your honey doesn’t have to see your socks), or work together to save a sinking submarine in an escape room adventure.
