If you’re looking for some alone time in a romantic activity, you should head to The Island in Pigeon Forge and ride The Great Smoky Mountain Wheel. This 200-foot-tall ferris wheel gives you the opportunity to have incredible views of the Smoky Mountains and Pigeon Forge. It’ll just be the two of you in the glass gondola. Riding the Wheel is even more romantic at night when Pigeon Forge, and the Wheel itself, are lit up!

2. Play Mini Golf

Pigeon Forge is definitely known for all the mini golf courses you can find along the Parkway! If you and your sweetheart want to do something fun and lighthearted, play a round or two of mini golf! Crave Golf Course is the perfect place to play. There’s an indoor course if the weather is nasty, and an outdoor rooftop course if you want to be outside when it’s nice! Both courses are candy and dessert themed. Seeing all of the delicious candies, cakes, and treats will make you crave some yourself. Luckily, Crave has a candy and ice cream store where you can grab a treat!

3. Travel the Rocky Top Wine Trail

If both of you enjoy tasting wine, you should travel the Rocky Top Wine Trail throughout Pigeon Forge. The way the trail works is you pick one of the wineries to stop at first and tell someone at the tasting counter you plan on making your way to all of the wineries. They will give you a passport to mark off at each location. Once you mark off all of them, you will get some free gifts! Plus, you’ll get to try all kinds of delicious wine along the way!

4. Go On a Carriage Ride

Is there anything more romantic than riding a carriage? Heritage Carriage Rides will take you on a tour around their facility. Riding in the carriage is a great way to slow down and focus on each other. You’ll even receive a long stem rose at the beginning of your ride! You’ll love this romantic ride at night.
