Cook dinner…together!
Every woman dreams of her man cooking dinner for her, but the experience can be extra special when you combine your efforts and prepare a meal together. Pick something not terribly time consuming that can be put in the oven so you have time to relax before your meal is ready.

Take a winter hike in the Smokies.
An exhilarating hike to the top of a mountain will clear your head, and studies show that the endorphins released while exercising will bring you closer to your mate. Plan a 3-4 hour excursion, pack a lunch, and enjoy a meal while you rest your legs and take in your view.

Take a hot air balloon ride.
While you may be too close to the date to plan an actual hot air balloon ride, head over to WonderWorks to discover the magic of the ride at only a fraction of the cost! The giant, tethered helium filled balloon will take you and other passengers 400 feet in the air before settling back down on the ground. (

A romantic dinner.
Head over to Cherokee Grill and Steakhouse for a romantic, up-scale dining experience. The outstanding food is complemented by an intimate mountain lodge atmosphere. Enjoy a glass of wine and a steak on Valentine’s Day!

Renew your vows.
There are dozens of wedding chapels in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, so take this opportunity to renew your bond with your partner. Many chapels offer renewal ceremonies that are less formal for a fraction of the price of a regular ceremony, and your special someone will appreciate this extra romantic effort.

Watch the sunrise.
Pick out a gourmet coffee or coffee creamer before you get to your cabin and set your coffee maker in your cabin to automatically brew in the morning. Awaken early to a fresh pot of coffee, grab a blanket, and have a seat on the rocking chairs with your partner. Watch the sun peek up over the mountains in beautiful colors of pink, orange, purple and blue…it is a romantic and peaceful experience that everyone in the Smoky Mountains should have at least once!
