island in pigeon forge at night

When you spend any amount of time in the Smokies with your sweetheart, you truly feel like romance is in the air! This might be one of the primary reasons why so many couples choose to get married or spend their honeymoon in the Smoky Mountains! While you could spend a romantic evening doing something as simple as strolling through downtown Gatlinburg, there are plenty of attractions in the area that make a great date night idea! Here are 4 Smoky Mountain attractions that are perfect for a romantic date night:


1. Gatlinburg Sky Lift

 One of the Smoky Mountain attractions that is perfect for a romantic date night is the Gatlinburg Sky Lift! This ski lift style attraction transports you 500 feet from downtown Gatlinburg to the top of Crockett Mountain. As you ride up the mountain, you will have the opportunity to view thousands of stars as they shine brightly above the Smokies! Once your chairlift slowly swings around for the ride back down, prepare for a dazzling view of Gatlinburg at night! Cuddle close and enjoy this unique time together as you glide among the serenity of the mountains!

2. Great Smoky Mountain Wheelsmoky mountain wheel

The Great Smoky Mountain Wheel is a 200 foot tall Ferris wheel that is the centerpiece to the Island in Pigeon Forge. While the ride is certainly breathtaking during the daytime, night rides on the Great Smoky Mountain Wheel are downright amazing! The all glass gondolas provide spectacular views of the sparkling lights below. Plus, you might even get lucky enough to see the Island Show Fountain while gently rotating through the air!

3. Ice Skating at Ober Gatlinburg

Hold your sweetheart by the hand for an evening of ice skating at Ober Gatlinburg! The indoor ice arena is the centerpiece to Ober Gatlinburg’s enclosed mall. It offers a romantic ambiance during the evening hours. It’s a no wonder it is such a popular place for marriage proposals! If you are trying ice skating for the first time, take comfort knowing that there is a handrail that goes around the perimeter of the rink for balance. Since the arena is located indoors, it is open year round for your enjoyment!

4. The Track Pigeon Forge

Spend an exciting date night by enjoying all of the fun activities at The Track Pigeon Forge! Start with a game of Safari Golf, an animated miniature golf course with dark tunnels, relaxing waterfalls and jungle animals! This gives you time to work up the nerve to ride the Skyflyer, where you and your sweetheart can soar more than 75 feet through the air on a skydiving style attraction! If your date isn’t quite up for that adventure, check out one of the go-kart tracks or visit Daddy’s Arcade where you can play games to win all types of awesome prices!
