35+ Ideas For Moms’ Night Out


35+ Ideas For Moms' Night Out

Sometimes Mama needs a night (or day!) out with friends. A time to enjoy conversation with people other than children, even though you’ll probably talk about your children the entire time, and time to recharge. Check out our list below of fun Moms’ Night Out ideas in Knoxville.

Navitat Knoxville

Visit Navitat at night, go for a treetop zip-line adventure, or even take over the entire park by booking an event for a day.

Rock Climbing

Check out Onsight Rock Gym, River Sports Outfitters Climbing Center, or Dick’s House of Sport.

Escape Room

Visit Breakout Games or Escape Games Knoxville to put your problem solving and teamwork to the test!

Rocky Top Rage Room 

Who doesn’t want to break things and let out frustration?

Axe Throwing

Something new for everyone to try and a game where everyone wins! Visit Smoky Mountain Axe House in Alcoa or Craft Axe Throwing in Knoxville.


I don’t know a single person that couldn’t benefit from slowing down, thinking less, and mentally unplugging for an hour. Visit a local yoga studio or hire a private yoga instructor to come to you!

Buff City Soaps

Book an in-store bath bomb party for 10 people. If you book it after hours then you can bring your own food, drinks, and decorations.

AR Workshop

Purchase DIY-to-go kits or book an event for your group.

Painting Class

Paint, sip wine, and have fun with your friends!


Get all dolled up and head downtown for a fun photoshoot!

Maple Hall 

Here you can eat, drink, and bowl! After 9pm it’s, 21+ and there is also an option to book their event lanes.

Knoxville Cycleboats 

Float your way down the Tennessee River with a group of gals. BYOB!

Riverboat Cruise

A lunch or dinner riverboat cruise with Volunteer Princess or the Tennessee Riverboat Company is another fun way to see the city from the water!

Dinner Out

You can’t ever go wrong with a dinner out on the town! If you want to check out a new place, try Radius Rooftop Lounge, The Vault, or Bella.

Cake Decorating Class

Find a bakery that offers group classes or a baker that will come to you!

Cooking Class

I know we are all tired of cooking, but maybe a class could change our dinner outlook? The Cutting Edge Classroom and Glass Bazaar offer adult cooking classes. Or if you don’t want to learn to cook, maybe hire a chef to come do an in-home meal for all of you!

Movie Night

Head to the theater and catch the latest flick or have everyone come over in their pajamas for a come night on the couch catching up with the movie on in the background.


There are so many spa options in Knoxville. Check out our spa guide and book some girl time.


An artist is almost always visiting Knoxville. Check out the local listings and put your boots on for a night!

Tennessee Theatre

The Tennessee lights sign downtown is where you can catch things from classical music, plays, comedians, and Broadway!

Top Golf

Although not open yet, once it does launch in 2022 it will be an excellent option for girls night!

Pottery Class

Try your hand at making pottery or sign up for a variety of other art themed classes at Studio 212.


Head to Townsend and spend a day floating down the river.

Catch a Game

We have so many options! You can almost always find a University of Tennessee game happening, but don’t forget about the Tennessee Smokies and our Knoxville Ice Bears!


Leave the kids at home and you can easily spend an entire day riding rollercoasters, eating, and shopping in Sevierville.

Book Club

Commit to a monthly book club and see all your gal pals frequently!


Who said sleepovers are just for kids? Truly I think moms need them even more. Host one at your home or splurge for a stay at a nearby hotel with some friends.

Themed Party

Check out Pinterest or TikTok for the latest themed party trends. I want to host a “Dress Like Your Significant Other” one soon. How fun does that sound?!

Dance Class

There are many dance studios in the Knoxville area. Pick one and have an adult party or sign up for one of their adult classes!

Dinner Show

Head over to Pigeon Forge and you can catch a wide variety of dinner shows, from Dolly’s Stampede to Hatfield and McCoys.


Join forces with your pals and volunteer with a local organization. Service is a great way to bring people together! One of my favorites is Helping Mamas Knoxville and they love hosting volunteer groups.

Market Square

If you can’t decide on what to do, just go on down to Market Square. You can romp, shop, eat, and explore!


Shop, eat, relax, and play in Gatlinburg. Maybe even stay overnight for an extra relaxing trip?

Pink Jeep Tour

Book a private tour and experience the Smokies like never before. Who doesn’t want to ride in Barbie’s Pink Jeep?

The Island at Pigeon Forge

This is a great place to visit any time of year!

Let us know your favorite thing to do on a night out with girlfriends!
