A list of upcoming events in the Smoky Mountains for February
February is a peaceful time to visit the Smoky Mountains. Romance is in the air. Holiday crowds are long gone. And spring break crowds have yet to arrive. It can also be a great time for a romantic getaway with your sweetheart.
Our recommendation, if you’re visiting with your Valentine, would be to rent a cabin for the weekend and plan a special dinner at one of Gatlinburg’s most romantic restaurants. A few of our favorite romantic spots include The Peddler Steakhouse, The Greenbrier Restaurant and Chesapeake’s. Feeling extra romantic? Consider a vow renewal at one of the many local chapels.
If you’re looking for something a bit more family-friendly consider skiing, snowboarding or snow tubing on the slopes at Ober Mountain (formerly Ober Gatlinburg). Indoor ice skating is also available). You may also enjoy a walk on the world-famous SkyBridge at SkyLift Park, a ride in a heated Pink Jeep or some live bluegrass and country music at Ole Red, Puckett’s or Hard Rock Cafe. The Titanic Museum (including the not-to-be-missed grand staircase replica) and Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies are also nice, warm indoor activities.
