You can also spend this time simply sleeping in and catching up on a little rest. Although this does not sound very exciting, we guarantee it will put both of you in a better mood which in turn will help strengthen your relationship with positivity.
2. Book a Couples Massage

All you have to do is choose whether or not you want a 60 or 90-minute massage.
3. Plan a Date Night
If you and your sweetheart prefer more of a low-key experience, you can still plan a memorable date night during your next trip to the area. The good news is you can choose to host this either inside your cabin rental by taking advantage of the fully-equipped kitchen or you can go out to one of the many romantic restaurants in the area. Either way, we promise you all will have no trouble finding ways to relax and spend time with one another. One of the most romantic things to do in Gatlinburg is share dinner for two at restaurants like The Peddler or Crystelle Creek.
When you are done with dinner, you and your loved ones can choose to extend your evening by watching a movie in your cabin’s home theater room or at the local movie theater in Pigeon Forge. You all can also swing by one of the local sweet shops in the area to grab a freshly baked cupcake or batch of fudge to enjoy.
4. Enjoy a Helicopter Tour
If you want to make your date even more special, we recommend you book one of the many helicopter tours offered in our area from Scenic Helicopter Tours. These tours are some of our favorite romantic things to do because not only do they give you all a chance to see the breathtaking Smoky Mountains from a whole new perspective, they also allow you to enjoy an experience you don’t get to see every day.
An example of the tour options you can choose from include:
- Aerial tour of downtown Gatlinburg
- National Park Tour
- Evening ride over the Smokies
- Douglas Lake View tour

5. Experience the Rocky Top Wine Trail
Another fun and easy way to make your next romantic getaway to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge more memorable is to explore the Rocky Top Wine Trail. If you aren’t familiar, the Rocky Top Wine Trail is a collaboration between all the local wineries in the area.
The way it works is you pick up a passport at any of the 5 participating locations and have one of the staff members check off the fact you were there. You’ll receive a souvenir wine glass after you visit your first 3 wineries, as well as when you complete the tour.
The best part about visiting all these wineries is the experience is completely free. That’s right! You don’t have to pay anything to sample the wines. All you have to pay for are the bottles of wine you find you like and want to take back home with you.
