1. Enjoy a Nice Dinner

Gatlinburg is full of romantic restaurants that you and your date can enjoy together. Whether you want a delicious steak, fresh seafood, or more casual food, there is a restaurant in the area that will fulfill your cravings. Two of the most popular date night restaurants are The Peddler and The Melting Pot. At The Peddler, you will be treated to a romantic dinner and some of the best cooked steaks you can imagine. You can start your meal off with a salad from The Peddler’s famous salad bar, where they have just about any type of salad topping you may want, in addition to homemade dressings. For the main course, you can choose between a variety of different types of dishes, but they are most known for their mouth watering steaks. If you are not a steak lover, The Melting Pot is another popular dining option. It offers a unique interactive fine dining experience and a delicious dinner for two that includes cheese fondue, salads, an entree, and a chocolate fondue!

2. Visit the Gatlinburg Space Needle

Space Needle There is nothing quite as romantic as the backdrop of the Smoky Mountains. If you are looking for the best place to take in the amazing views, look no further than the Gatlinburg Space Needle. The 407-foot observation tower gives you astonishing views of both downtown Gatlinburg and the Smokies. After riding a glass elevator more than 400 feet, you will step off onto a platform that gives you a 360 degree view of the area around you. This is the perfect place to get a picture of you and your date to remember the fun you had in Gatlinburg!

3. Go Hiking in the Smoky Mountains

Speaking of great views, one of the most romantic things to do in Gatlinburg is hiking through the mountains. Baskins Creek Falls is one of the amazing hikes you and your significant other can go on together. It is a 3.1 mile hike that features a beautiful waterfall along the way. The trail is short enough to where you can hike it in an afternoon and still have time to check out other things later in the evening. There are an endless amount of different hiking trails in and around Gatlinburg to check out!

4. Take a Ride on the Gatlinburg SkyLift

SkyLift On the Gatlinburg SkyLift, you can cuddle up next to your date and take a ride to the top of Crockett Mountain. This is another great way to experience the great views of the mountains! Once at the top, you will step onto the SkyDeck which looks over all of Gatlinburg and across the highest peaks of the Smokies. Once you are done exploring, you can venture back down the SkyLift which offers the same great view as you experienced on the way up the mountain.
