With the pressures of everyday life, responsibilities and work commitments, it is hard to make time for your partner and break away from the monotony of your routine. Even on holidays, something or the other catches you off guard. You can strengthen your bond and appreciate your relationship more by spending quality time together on occasions such as anniversaries, birthdays, or other celebratory instances. The perfect way to ensure you spend uninterrupted time with your partner is to plan a quick romantic getaway.

They say Paris is the city of love. However, not everybody can afford or manage a trip to France. If you want to plan a romantic getaway with your partner, there is no shortage of options in the USA. From beautiful beach resorts to gorgeous small towns in every part of the country, you are sure to find fresh experiences everywhere. Our favorite for couples is the beautiful mountain town of Gatlinburg, Tennessee!

Gatlinburg is located in eastern Tennessee on the edge of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. The town is a popular tourist destination and attracts a large number of visitors during the fall season due to the beautiful fall colors and weather. The gorgeous landscapes surrounding the town and the quaint architecture make it a lovers’ paradise. If you’ve decided to take your significant other to Gatlinburg, first off, great choice! Secondly, let us help you plan the ultimate romantic getaway by following these tried and tested tips!

Splurge on the Accommodation

You might consider compromising on a regular hotel for a short trip to make more budget for activities. Let us stop you right there! The lodging facilities are the most important for a romantic couple’s trip. If the goal is to spend quality time with your partner, the hotel/lodging you choose to stay in must be comfortable, beautiful, and fully equipped with all facilities and amenities you may need. A great choice are the Gatlinburg chateau rentals, equipped with a fireplace and private balconies with gorgeous views of the town! The privacy and added amenities make the chateau rentals the perfect couple’s lodging facility. After all, since this is a couple’s trip, you’ll probably spend as much time indoors as you will outdoors, if not more!

Go easy on the Itinerary

Tourists looking for a charming and relaxing experience love Gatlinburg and what it has to offer. However, you must remember that your goal is not to explore the town but spend quality time with your significant other. By filling your already limited days with activities, you will take away valuable time you could have spent with your partner. Therefore, go easy on the activities and spend a lazy day indoors together, or maybe stroll through the downtown area just enjoying each other’s company. Even just watching the sunset from your private balcony will be a moment you both will cherish for years to come. These things will help you build your relationship, not ziplining across the Smokys!

Opt for Couple Activities

The town of Gatlinburg has something for everyone. As such, couples also fall within the categories that it caters to. You and your partner can do many romantic activities together, which are both fun and relaxing. For instance, if you both fancy beverages such as wine or moonshine, you can book a wine-tasting or moonshine-tasting slot in one of Gatlinburg’s many wineries or distilleries. A truly romantic experience as you sip new and exotic flavors with the love of your life, surrounded by the beauty of Gatlinburg. You’ll enjoy learning about how the flavors developed into what they are today and the history behind the wineries and distilleries, such as the Old Smoky Moonshine. You can also go for more simple activities, such as stargazing in the Smoky’s, or just have a romantic picnic in one of the many picturesque locations you can find in Gatlinburg.

Dinner with Love

Food is not just to fulfill your appetite; it is a gateway to your heart and mind. A great way to spend quality time with your partner is to plan a romantic dinner. Gatlinburg has numerous fantastic options which are perfect for couples. Take a stroll to the Parkway and walk into the local establishments for a great dining experience. However, if you truly want to up your game and make your partner feel special, find a restaurant that caters to their taste and book your reservation ahead of time. The hospitality services in Gatlinburg are among the best you’ll experience, so if you let them know your exact requirements for dinner, they will make sure you have an unforgettable experience. From traditional candlelight to outdoor moonlight, everything is possible in Gatlinburg!

Chasing Waterfalls in the Smokies

The Smoky Mountains have a lot to offer, not the least of which is the abundance of waterfalls within the mountain range. Exploring the Smoky’s is time-consuming and exhausting, which is not exactly suited for a romantic trip. However, you can go for a morning hike to one of the many waterfalls in the Smokys. The Rainbow Falls trail leads to a waterfall straight out of a fairytale, while the Mingo Falls look like one of Picasso’s paintings. Beauty is of no shortage in and around Gatlinburg and the Smoky waterfalls are no exception. Each has its unique qualities, no less than the others. Look them up, pick the one that best suits your trip schedule, and go on a hike with your partner. The adventure and experience will be one you will remember for years.

Final Words

We often put our relationships and partners in the backseat because of work or daily routine, which is the number one reason most relationships go south.

However, to make them see just how much you love and cherish them, follow the above tips and give them the ultimate romantic experience!
