Planning on getting away with that special someone, but can’t decide on the destination? Well, take a closer look at Pigeon Forge. It’s the perfect locale for a couple’s retreat with its myriad of attractions, dining opportunities, and Smoky Mountain cabins, hotels and bed and breakfasts.
To make the most out of your trip, we suggest checking into one of Pigeon Forge’s many Smoky Mountain cabin rentals. These cabins provide spectacular views of the Smokies while giving you a more intimate feel, more so than a hotel or a bed and breakfast. With your own Pigeon Forge cabin, it’s just you two, the view, and a slew of new memories.
That afternoon or evening, head on over for dinner at Mama’s Farmhouse or the Applewood Farmhouse Grill and enjoy some of the area’s best Southern cooking. If you choose the later, you can even go on a nice walk down by the Little Pigeon River before or after dinner. Maybe you want want some desert? The Apple Valley Creamery is located on the premises and serves some of the best ice cream and baked goods you’re likely to find anywhere in the Smokies.
You can finish off that first day with one of the area’s best shows or attractions. Located within a stone’s throw of each other are the Titanic Museum attraction, WonderWorks, the Lumberjack Feud dinner show and the Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Feud.
That next day, hit up the Log Cabin Pancake House for a great breakfast and do a little shopping at some of Pigeon Forge’s many shopping destinations – The Christmas Place, Tanger Five Oaks Outlet Mall, or Old Mill Square. That afternoon, stop by a local grocery store and get a few things for a picnic in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. There are so many places to choose from, but one of the best places to take a lunch is Cades Cove, just outside Pigeon Forge in Townsend, TN. Eat in the Cades Cove picnic area then walk around and look at all the historical Cades Cove buildings.
That night, before heading back to the cabin take in what you missed the first night. Whether it be a show, an attraction, whatever. Maybe you want to scoot on over to Gatlinburg and peruse some of their downtown shops and attractions. Go for it! Between Ripley’s Aquarium and all the other spots downtown there’s plenty to fill up an evening. Either way, come back to Pigeon Forge and take in the town one more time before leaving the following day and make plans to come again with your someone special for another memorable time in the Smokies.
