Whether you’re on your honeymoon or a spur of the moment romantic getaway, the Smoky Mountains are the perfect place to visit with your sweetheart! From scenic views to award-winning restaurants and attractions, there are so many things to experience while you enjoy each other’s company. To help you plan for your trip, here are 5 romantic things to do in the Smokies.
1. Dinner for Two
Make your date night extra special with dinner for two at one of the romantic restaurants in Gatlinburg and the Smokies. You can both reminisce about your day while you enjoy a delicious meal. The two of you can also spend quality time together as you make your favorite dinners in your own cabin with a fully equipped kitchen. There’s enough room for all your ingredients, leftovers, and a few bottles of champagne!
2. Ride the Gatlinburg Sky Lift
Over the years, one of the things that couples have loved to do the most has been to ride the Gatlinburg Sky Lift. You can cuddle up close to your special someone as you glide up the side of Crockett Mountain. It’s easy to feel like you’re the only two people in the world from 1,800 feet in the air! The ride back down is arguably even more beautiful than the ascent up the mountainside, with gorgeous views of the Smokies and downtown Gatlinburg.
3. Scenic Helicopter Tour
See the Smokies from new heights when you and your loved one go on a scenic helicopter tour! These special experiences allow you both to connect over breathtaking views that you’ll remember for years to come. There are a variety of affordable tours for the two of you to choose from, each with its own unique and stunning vistas.
4. Wine Tasting on the Rocky Top Wine Trail
Enjoy a romantic day of wine tastings and tours with the one you love! There are over 70 unique varieties of wine for you to sample together along the Rocky Top Wine Trail. This is a self-guided tour, so you don’t have to rush to complete it all in one day. It’s comprised of five wineries, and the best part is that it’s completely free! You’ll even receive a free gift at both your third and final stop.
5. Relax in Your Cabin
After a day of exploring the Smokies together, you and your sweetheart can unwind in your own Smoky Mountain cabin. Our 1 bedroom cabins are perfect for any romantic getaway and feature some top quality amenities that you will both love. Take a relaxing soak with your other half in the bubbling hot tub or curl up next to the fireplace while you watch a movie.
As you can tell, there’s no shortage of romantic things to do in the Smokies. For an experience you’ll always remember, give some of these ideas a try. Be sure to check out all the other fantastic Smoky Mountain attractions in the area, and save when you take advantage of our Luxury Pass.
