A Fall Couple’s Getaway to Remember


School’s back in session, schedules are in place, now it’s time for mom and dad to plan a fall getaway! Family vacations are the best but sometimes it is nice to relax and regroup as a couple. Fall is the perfect time of year for that. Whether it be alone or with other couples, you will find plenty of activities to do in Pigeon Forge. You are sure to leave feeling refreshed and ready to conquer that busy fall family schedule!


The first item on the agenda for a great getaway is lodging. Between condos, cabins, and hotels, you are sure to find just what you are looking for. Margaritaville Island Hotel is located at The Island. You can sit out on the balcony and enjoy the fountain show, listen to the music coming from the stage at Old Smoky Moonshine or Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville restaurant, or watch the Great Smoky Mountain Wheel in action. If being a little more secluded is what you are looking for, then a cabin at Eagles Ridge Resort would be perfect. There you can enjoy the scenery and the mountain sounds from the rockers on the front porch or maybe even from the hot tub. If you still need all the luxuries of home while you are away, then a condo at Riverstone Resort and Spa or Whispering Pines Condominiums is an excellent choice. They are fully furnished and will make you feel right at home.



Meal times will be effortless and peaceful, so enjoy the finest that Pigeon Forge has to offer. Grab a fine hand cut Angus steak at Alamo Steakhouse, or a classic Southern meal like chicken fried steak at the Old Mill, or maybe some award-winning ribs at Calhoun’s. Wherever you choose, enjoy the time and conversation with you significant other.



Entertainment options abound. A hike together in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is an excellent way to see all of the beautiful fall leaves or spend the day enjoying the National Southern Gospel & Harvest Celebration at Dollywood. A stroll around the Old Mill Square or The Island will give you some great souvenir options to take back to the kids. Cap off your evening watching some singing and dancing at the Country Tonite show or enjoying some laughs together over at the Comedy Barn. Fun times await even without the kids!!


Don’t forget to relax a little on your getaway. A couple’s massage at the St. Somewhere Spa would be a perfect choice!!  They offer first class amenities like a chill room and rain showers as well as luxurious treatment rooms. Riverstone Spa also offers some great couples’ packages that include massages and facials, and even manicures and pedicures.


Don’t let this fall slip away without planning a fun couple’s getaway to Pigeon Forge!!
