If you are looking for a truly unique date, go bowling! Show off your skills, and just have some friendly competition with your loved one while enjoying a game. Going bowling creates the perfect flirty and fun tone that a date should have. There’s a bowling alley located inside the Pigeon Forge Community Center. This also makes for a very affordable date with a game costing only $2.00 during the day, and $1.95 for shoes.

3. See a Movie

Another classic date idea is seeing a movie because of the dark atmosphere and the chance to bond over a shared experience. There are two theaters in the Pigeon Forge area, the Forge Cinemas and Governor’s Crossing 14. The Forge Cinema offers stadium seating with plush-y chairs and is smaller and cheaper. Governor’s Crossing is much larger and can accomodate more people, which means they offer a wider variety of movie options and concessions. The seating here is also stadium style but instead the seats recline.

4. Visit The  Island

The Island offers a full date night without ever having to drive to a different location! You will find a restaurant to dine at, a place to drink, some shopping, and some other attractions. The Smoky Mountain Wheel is the must do at The Island for a date night though. Take your loved one 200 feet above Pigeon Forge in an enclosed gondola. You two will be enchanted and inspired by the views whether during the day with a view of the mountains, or at night with the city lights shining below. The Wheel creates a perfect romantic and intimate atmosphere for your date. This is one of the most unique ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day in Pigeon Forge.
