Gatlinburg Space Needle

Another iconic landmark with amazing views in the Smokies is the Gatlinburg Space Needle. You can see the city and surrounding area from the 360-degree observation deck. The most romantic time to go and observe is at night to see the entire city lit up!

Wine Tastings

Wine tastings automatically say romance! One of the very few things to do for adults only is wine tastings in the Smokies. Gatlinburg Wine Cellar and Smoky Mountain Winery are our two favorites in the area and perfect stop when looking for a wine tasting. 

Horseback Riding or Carriage Rides

There are so many opportunities to enjoy horseback riding or carriage rides in the Smoky Mountains. Whether you're looking for a romantic daytime activity, or a sweet carriage right at night after a romantic dinner, this is a great idea for a little bit of romance! Big Rock Dude Ranch offers great horseback riding trips and Heritage Carriage Rides offers great rides at any time of day!
