For the Romantic Couple
From the brightest emeralds of Gatlinburg's Springfest to the blooming color explosion of Harvest Festival season of Pigeon Forge, there is no sight in the Smokies for miles that can't inspire genuine affection and a feeling of closeness that nothing else on Earth can compare to.
Here are some great suggestions for taking your romantic getaway in the Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and Sevierville to new heights and create memories lasting a long time. Let's take a look:
1. The Love Nest
Alamo Steakhouse is famous in the Smokies for a variety of reasons, and this one is easily one of the most popular. There is an upstairs private table available ONLY by reservation and it's your own private little place to spend with each other and enjoy some of the BEST Southern-style food you'll ever find in Gatlinburg.
2. Greenbrier Restaurant
Want something a little more old-fashioned fancy dining? Greenbrier Restaurant is one of the best places to go for that. Not only is it tucked away from the main road of Gatlinburg to add an incredible sense of atmosphere and privacy, the upper-class cuisine is simply unbeatable in the county. See their menu at
3. In Cabin Services
Seriously, think for a second - what could possibly sound better than having a personal masseuse visit you at your cabin, with a romantic package and gift basket, or private romantic dining just to start? Congratulate yourselves for sticking through the hard times and pulling off one of the best events of your lives with something from In Cabin Services.
4. Cupid's Petals
Gentlemen, there is not one woman on Earth whose heart would not melt at the sight of a beautiful bouquet from Cupid's Petals. Order a dozen roses, or even a dozen dozen, and your gesture of affection and appreciation will not be forgotten. Also gift baskets and more services.
5. Smoky Mountain Guest Services
If you're not into looking around at too many places for different services, check out Smoky Mountain Guest Services - which offers spa and massage, gift baskets, flower and balloon delivery, personal shopping, catering, and even a limousine rental.
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!
