2. Enjoy Views From a Chairlift

It’s not until you see Gatlinburg from high above the ground that you truly realize just how special the Smokies are! Do just that from one of a handful of Gatlinburg attractions, including Anakeesta, Gatlinburg SkyPark and Ober Mountain. Anakeesta offers both an open-air scenic chondola chairlift and a 6-person enclosed gondola cabin to savor vibrant views. Gatlinburg SkyPark is home to the Gatlinburg SkyLift, the longest running attraction in Gatlinburg, and several other scenic attractions.

3. Experience Great Smoky Mountains National Park

A trip to Great Smoky Mountains National Park is one of the top romantic things to do in Gatlinburg!

In the middle of your adventures in the park, stop and enjoy a packed meal at one of several picnic areas.

4. See a Sunset or Sunrise

We know it’s hard to believe, but the sun doesn’t always shine in the Smokies. If you catch it when it first wakes up or right as it’s going to bed, you’re in for a real treat as romantic scenes paint the sky! Wake up early, grab your coffee and head for your cabin porch or hotel balcony to watch the sun rise. At night, pour a couple glasses of our wine and sit in solace with your love as the sun sets against the marvelous backdrop of the mountains. Places Morton Overlook, Clingmans Dome and the Gatlinburg Scenic Overlook serve up stunning sunrise or sunset views!
