If you’re planning on treating your sweetheart to a night on the town in the Smokies, we have a few suggestions on how to make the evening extra special. From dinner and drinks to the perfect show, we know how to have the perfect romantic night under the stars of the Smokies. Here is a guide to date night in the Smoky Mountains:
Make Reservations for an Early Dinner
With so many amazing dinner options, it can be hard to pick where you should take your love for your date night meal. Wherever you choose, we suggest making reservations or arriving at the restaurant early. In order to beat the dinner rush and get to your next date night stop on time, it’s recommended to come in a little earlier than normal.
A few of the top date night restaurants in Gatlinburg include the Greenbrier Restaurant and The Melting Pot. If you’re in Pigeon Forge, try Gaucho Urbano, the Local Goat or The Old Mill Restaurant. If you’re staying in historic Sevierville, head downtown to try The Appalachian.
Buy Tickets for an Award-Winning Show
There is nothing like dinner and show, and luckily for you, the Smoky Mountains offer tons of award-winning shows for your enjoyment. We suggest buying tickets to Country Tonite in Pigeon Forge to see an amazing combination of singing, dancing and comedy. Country Tonite is celebrating their 25th season, as well as being repeatedly voted “Best Show in the Smokies” by locals and visitors alike. Enjoy music ranging from country classics to powerful gospel and modern hits. If you’re visiting during the holidays, make sure to check out their incredible Christmas show!
Grab a Drink After the Show
End your date night in the Smoky Mountains at any of the great bars in Pigeon Forge to grab a drink and relax with your honey. Whether you’re in the mood for some craft beers or signature cocktails, these bars have got you covered. There is nothing like having great conversations with your partner over a drink while reminiscing on the night. If you’d rather grab a bottle of red, white, or bubbly to take back to your cabin, stop by any of the grocery stores in the area that sell alcohol, including Food City and Publix.
Head Back to Your Cozy Cabin
After your exciting night out on the town, head back to your cozy cabin and relax for the remainder of the evening with your partner. Cozy up with your glass of wine by the fireplace or head out on the porch and relax under the stars in your hot tub. We offer tons of romantic cabins in Gatlinburg for couples looking for a secluded Smokies getaway, so make sure to book the perfect 1 bed, 1 bath cabin on your next trip to the area! Whether you’re traveling here for your honeymoon, anniversary or just a weekend, you’ll love the cabins we offer!
