The Gatlinburg area is full of romantic things to do! Here are a few activities you may want to enjoy on your honeymoon:
- Watch the sunrise at Clingmans Dome.
- Take the Rocky Top Wine Trail – a tour of five local wineries with free samples at each one.
- Go for a drive or horseback ride through Cades Cove.
- Get some delicious fondue at the Melting Pot.
- Admire the glittering downtown lights from the Gatlinburg Sky Lift.
4. Spend Plenty of Time at Your Home Away from Home
While you will definitely want to explore the area during your honeymoon, be sure to leave some time to take advantage of the romantic amenities at your cabin or chalet. Newlyweds will love sitting out on their deck and savoring the majestic mountain views in the distance. To make your time on the deck even more romantic, take a relaxing soak in the hot tub with your sweetheart.
If you will be honeymooning in Gatlinburg during the cooler months, you can snuggle up in front of your cabin’s toasty fireplace. Some of our properties also come with indoor Jacuzzis, so you can unwind in the bath after a day of fun in town. All of our cabins and chalets feature fully furnished kitchens, so couples can easily whip up a tasty meal or snack. Chocolate covered strawberries are always a great idea for a romantic retreat!
