Continuing on the season for romance and interesting special events going on in the Smokies, you can already guess the big reason for coming to the mountains this month (Valentine's Day, for those of you who get in trouble for forgetting), but there's another one coming after that to appeal to a more select but equally fun desire for many people - Saddle Up! in Pigeon Forge.
Valentine's Day is, as always, February 14th and the Smokies offer much to fulfill the romantic intentions of our visitors. The Space Needle, Ober Gatlinburg and the Sky Lift can give the two of you gorgeous views of the Smokies all around and fill you with the majesty of the mountains. They don't need any color to inspire wonder. If you're into the simple pleasures of life (and if not, you should be!) we have Ripley's Davy Crocket Mini Golf, Old Gatlinburg Golf and Games, Fannie Farkle's, Arcadia and Cooter's Place in the Smokies. If you're looking for something to fire up the imagination a little hotter, we have Ripley's Aquarium, Haunted Adventure, Believe It or Not! Odditorium, and Guinness World of Records. If you're looking for something to, um, spice things up a little differently, we have Smoky Mountain Winery, Sugarland Cellars, Doc Collier Moonshine Distillery and, of course, Ole Smoky Moonshine.
The list of Gatlinburg attractions only begins there, there's a lot more to see at www.gatlinburg.com.
And now for what follows - what is Saddle Up! exactly? Well, it's a weekend where the west comes east and fans of Old West culture can put on their spurs and numerical-gallon hats, listen to a plethora of modern Western singer/songwriters perform throughout the city and even enjoy cowboy-themed breakfasts, lunches, workshops and a church service. It's quite a different kind of special event for the Smokies and it's a lot of fun.
You can see more on that event at http://www.mypigeonforge.com/events/saddle-up/.
And now what sort of cabins do we have available for a romantic interlude in the Smokies during that time? Have a look here to find openings for our chalets. http://www.chaletvillage.com/honeymoon-cabin-rentals
Hope to see you soon!
