We are spicing up your relationship with these Day Date Ideas in South-East Tennessee. We know you want to spend time together to rejuvenate your relationship, so we've found these fun ideas to help you bring back the spark.
The Adventure Challenge
We bought The Adventure Challenge Book to create memories for our date nights. We absolutely love the date ideas in the book. Scratch off a date night idea to find out what you are doing this week.
This week's idea is:
Build a fire together and roast s'mores.
Supplies needed: blankets, wood, fire starter, lighter or matches, graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows.
Might we add that cuddle time on the blankets with kissing tips from The Art of Kissing is a great addition.
You can find wood from fallen trees and branches at the location or bring heat treated wood with you. Heat treated wood has a state or federal seal on it.
The Greater Chattanooga Area has amazing places to build a fire, so you can have alone time together.
Chilhowee has BBQ pits at the very top by the lake and Benton Falls hike. Parking is a $3 donation. You can also bring a swimsuit to take a dip in the lake or bring paddle boards to go around the lake together.
Hiwasee/Ocoee State Park - Take 411 up to the scenic river road towards Hiwasee/Ocoee State Park. There are clean restrooms at the Park Ranger Station. We really enjoyed the peacefulness of this location. There are also plenty of trails to take a hike to enjoy nature or you can sit on a bench overlooking the river to just relax together. The river is also perfect for canoeing and paddle boarding.
Chester Frost Park- Enjoy the Tennessee River while you roast your marshmallows. Just up the road is Harbor Lights Marina where you can rent a boat for the day. They have pontoon boats, speed boats, and party boats that you can enjoy for the day. We enjoyed the pontoon boat ride. The breeze in your hair is such a relief on a hot summer day.

Fall Creek Falls State Park
Just a short drive north from Chattanooga is a breathtaking state park. Fall Creek Falls State Park is picturesque with water falls, watering holes for swimming, camping, hiking, deer, scenic driving, and clean bathrooms. We loved that the temperature was at least 15 degrees cooler than the day we drove up there. We enjoyed the green trees, beautiful landscape, and just being together. Don't take my word for it, check out the views!
We highly recommend the Scenic Loop drive because the views are amazing. If you decide to take a dip in the swimming holes, remember the water is cooler than in the valley, but it's refreshing on a hot day.
Make it a Getaway
If you'd like to make this a getaway, there are campsites available to rent for RV's or tents.
We love this Bed and Breakfast that you pass on your way into the State Park. Book it! As we drove by it got a WOW factor.
Another WOW factor was this home on the lake, complete with hammock. After you've hiked the Falls and enjoyed the fresh air, it's time to relax around the lake. Book it!
