For the Adventurous Couple
Of course, not everyone's always into the deeply, directly romantic stuff and just want to have fun in the Smokies during the honeymoon. Your special weekend (or whenever you decide to have it) should suit to taste, not tradition, and Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg offer something for everyone!
Does it surprise anyone Dollywood would be the first item listed here or anywhere? It is the pre-eminent attraction in the Smokies - shows, rides, restaurants, museums... it would take 5 straight days to see everything Dollywood has to offer. Indulge your fun side with a rollercoaster ride through the mountains themselves, soaring in the air, or through a haunted mine to commemorate your wedding bliss. You'll come back year after year to do it again!
2. Horseback Riding
Now this is a way to see the Smokies! Horseback riding is a natural extension of culture here in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg and there are several places that offer excellent ranches to gallop through. Check out
3. Pigeon Forge Zorb
The spice of a honeymoon is creativity; as if you needed another reason to want to roll down a large hill in a man-sized inflatable ball. There is truly NOTHING like Zorb for miles and miles around and it's every adult's childhood wish come true. You'll be telling the story of how, on a whim, you decided to climb into a large plastic sphere, filled with water (optional) and crashed down the Smokies for the best ride of your life - heck, you might even make it a tradition!
Exploring is the adventure and what could you explore better in the Smokies than the Smokies themselves? There are dozens of hiking trails within Gatlinburg and they range from simple, pleasant outings to expert-level excursions. Either way, you will be surrounding by the incredible natural beauty of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, and what could be more romantic than that?
5. Rafting in the Smokies
Rafting is one of the area's most fun adventures! Our cabins are located in close proximity to many of the best rafting areas. Plan ahead and make reservations!
