This Smoky Mountain town offers honeymooners romance, a dash of adventure and entertainment you’ll never forget. Here are six delightful ways to spend your honeymoon in Gatlinburg.
Book a Private Tour
Pink Adventure Tours takes you on a personal trek through your choice of destinations. Visit scenic overlooks, drive famous mountain roads, and take pictures you’ll treasure. If you’re a high flyer, Scenic Helicopter Tours offers special packages for romantic flights including roses, chocolates, and local wine or hard cider. Don’t forget the selfies!
Bond in the Great Outdoors
Gatlinburg nestles next to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Spend quiet time together as you explore cascading waterfalls and historic homesteads. Bring a picnic and look for wildflowers three seasons of the year. Spot wildlife from deer to black bears as you tour nature trail highways in your car. Challenge yourselves with hikes--the park has everything from easy walks to intense climbs. You’ll have the Smokies, the forests, and each other.
Enjoy a Show
See a show and you’ll have plenty to talk about later, whether you giggle at the jokes from The Comedy Barn or croon classic hits you heard at the Soul of Motown. This being Tennessee, there’s country, too. Try Ole Red Gatlinburg, where country star Blake Shelton puts up-and-coming acts on the stage and good food and drink on your table.
Go Wine Tasting
East Tennessee’s lively wineries produce delicious local wines to tempt your palate. Spend a day tasting wine at beautiful wineries in the shadow of the Smokies. Gatlinburg Wine Cellar and Smoky Mountain Winery host tastings. Five wineries show off their wares on the Rocky Top Wine Trail, where 70 wines are available for sampling. Get the wine trail map online and set your own pace.
Take in a Spectacular View
Gaze at the mountains by your sweetheart’s side. Honeymooners have plenty of places to take in the sights. The Gatlinburg Space Needle stands 400 feet high and from its observation platform, the 360-degree views lay out the whole valley below you and the mountains beyond.
Cuddle together in a chairlift for two as you ascend to SkyLift Park to cross the SkyBridge between mountainsides, then stroll the mountain-hugging SkyTrail hand in hand.
Honeymoon in a Cozy Cabin
Being alone together is the whole idea, right? Imagine your honeymoon home-away-from-home is a beautiful cabin, located near all the adventures above yet tucked away from it all. In a romantic cabin, you’ll curl up by the fireplace, or hang out in the hot tub, or just shoot some pool together. Reserve your honeymoon cabin today.
