February may be the shortest month of the year but there’s no shortage of things to do in Gatlinburg TN. With the holidays behind us and spring just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to enjoy a quieter time in the Smoky Mountains. Snow often covers the mountain peaks, hot cider, wine and moonshine tastings are around every corner, and non-stop fun awaits at Ober Gatlinburg. Thinking about planning a trip? Here are 5 things to do in Gatlinburg in February while you’re in town!

1. Have Snow Much Fun at Ober Gatlinburg

Tennessee’s only ski resort sits above downtown Gatlinburg and is the perfect winter destination. Ober Gatlinburg offers a variety of opportunities for fun year-round but February is by far the best month to hit the slopes and go snow tubing with family or friends.

2. Visit the Museums

Visiting local museums is a great way to spend some of your time while you’re in Gatlinburg during the month of February. You’ll find unique locations like the Salt & Pepper Museum, Hollywood Star Cars, Gatlinburg Pinball Museum, Ripley’s Believe It or Not!, and more. A trip to a museum is a great way to explore the town and still stay warm on a rainy or snowy day.

3. Take a Stroll in the “Tunnel of Love” at the Gatlinburg SkyLift Park

Are you visiting the Smokies with your sweetheart during the month of February? If so, take a romantic stroll through the “Tunnel of Love” at the Gatlinburg SkyLift Park! The Gatlinburg SkyBridge is a top destination among guests all year long, but in February it’s a little extra special in celebration of Valentine’s Day. This special event makes the Gatlinburg SkyLift Park one of the best things to do in Gatlinburg in February!

4. Visit Ripley’s Aquarium

Spend time in our Great Smoky Mountains National Park but save a day to also visit Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies. The aquarium has been rated as one of the top aquariums in the world and after one visit, we think you’ll agree.

5. Take a Winter Hike

Gatlinburg is the gateway to the most visited national park in America and a visit to town wouldn’t be complete without some time in the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Taking a winter hike in February will give you the perks of exploring the trails with less people, the beauty of the season, and all of the great benefits of spending time in nature. The Gatlinburg Trail, Little River Trail, Old Sugarlands Trail, and quiet walkways or nature trails are always great options for a winter hike in the Smokies.
