Gatlinburg is the perfect destination for a romantic retreat with your special someone! Between the gorgeous Smoky Mountain views and all the things to do around town, it is no wonder why couples love visiting Gatlinburg. If you are trying to impress your significant other, here are 4 ways to have the perfect date night in downtown Gatlinburg:
1. Romantic Dinner
One of the best ways to spend a date night in the Smokies is with a trip to our Gatlinburg restaurant. You will not find a more romantic and relaxing atmosphere than what you will experience when dining with us. Your date is sure to love the view of the Little Pigeon River from our dining room, to go along with mouthwatering entrees of all kinds. After a trip to our famous salad bar, you can order a perfectly cooked steak to go along with your favorite bottle of wine. Be sure to save some room to split one of our incredible desserts, such as Kristi’s Chocolate Cake or the Sweet Tooth Trio!
2. Stroll the Streets of Downtown
After your amazing dinner for two, you can make the short walk to the Parkway in downtown Gatlinburg, where you can browse through a ton of incredible shops. You will find all kinds of unique souvenir stores to pick out the perfect gift for your date. Be sure to stop by The Village, where you will find 27 amazing boutiques that offer something for everyone! From a special store that is all about socks to a place that has the best donuts in town, you are sure to find a shop that interests you!
3. Visit the Gatlinburg Space Needle
For an aerial view of the nightlife in Gatlinburg, you can take your date to the top of the Gatlinburg Space Needle. While it is amazing to see the mountain view from the observation tower during the day, a night visit is just as incredible. You won’t be able to miss the Space Needle, as it will be lit up standing high above downtown. Once you ride to the top, you can get a bird’s eye view of all the people buzzing through Gatlinburg.
4. Take a Ride on the Gatlinburg SkyLift
The Gatlinburg SkyLift has been taking people on rides up the mountain since 1954. In fact, it was the first four-season scenic chairlift in the South. Since then, it has become one of the landmarks of downtown Gatlinburg. You and your date can enjoy the romantic ride to the top of Crockett Mountain, and then spend the evening exploring the Gatlinburg SkyLift Park. On the SkyDeck, you can enjoy a drink with your sweetheart while you soak in the panoramic view of the Smokies from 1,800 feet above sea level. On your way back down the SkyLift, you can soak in the view of the bright lights of Gatlinburg.
