Couple’s Activities

In Gatlinburg, stroll through downtown and stop at the many enchanting shopping and dining venues, or enjoy the unique displays at Ripley’s Aquarium. Fly high with a ride on the scenic Sky Lift to the top of the mountain, and plan to spend the day at Ober Gatlinburg where skiing, ice skating, snowboarding, and snow tubing are available depending on the season.

A few minutes up the road from Gatlinburg is Pigeon Forge where you can enjoy the many delights of Dollywood Theme Park including live entertainment, rides, attractions, and seasonal events. During the warmer months, cool off at Dollywood’s Splash Country water park with rides and slides.

Savor the flavor of the area’s local history while touring the vineyards and sampling a taste of the grape at one of the wineries along the Rocky Top Wine Trail.

If you just want to relax, enjoy the scenery, and absorb the magnificence of the setting, there’s hiking, canoeing, white water rafting, kayaking, and horseback riding within Great Smoky Mountains National Park. And for a cabin in an especially scenic setting, check out our Wears Valley cabins.

For scenic wonder, drive to Clingmans Dome, the highest point in the national park. Walk the half-mile paved trail to the observation tower, for views of 7 different states on a clear day.

If the two of you really want to “hang” together, take it to another level with a zipline excursion, or see the sights from on-high with a visit to the Gatlinburg Space Needle.

For photo opportunities, take a drive to the Gatlinburg Scenic Overlook to share with friends and family.

About Dusty Camp

I moved to the Smoky Mountains a few years ago from Alabama - a big change, but one I'm glad I made. I like meeting all the different types of people who visit here, and getting to know a little bit about them. I love to watch all the wildlife throughout Cades Cove, but most of all I like winter, waking up to see everything covered in snow and icicles.
