Romantic Getaway

Smoky Mountain Romance

Whether you are honeymooning, celebrating an anniversary, Valentine's Day, or just simply need some time away with that special someone in your life, the Smoky Mountains is a beautiful place to really fire up or rekindle that romance.  With breathtaking views of the Smoky Mountains, the Pigeon River, majestic waterfalls, and the unmistakable sweet southern charm and hospitality of Tennessee, it sets the backdrop for romance, relaxation, and excitement! 

This is THE perfect romantic getaway during all four seasons of the year!  Autumn is the Smoky Mountains peak season because people love to see the vivid array of colors of the changing leaves, along with breathing in that cool, crisp mountain air…ahhhh!  Doesn't get much better!  In the winter months, the views of snow-capped mountains, and activities such as winter hikes, fun on the ski slopes, and ice-skating at Ober Gatlinburg makes for a perfect fun-filled day.  Even better, you can look forward to cuddling by the cozy fireplace in your private cabin at the end of your exciting day.  In spring and summer, the flowers are blooming, and countless warm weather activities make ALL times of the year enjoyable at this romantic destination. 

  For the guys out there who want to sweep that special lady off of her feet, I have some amazing tips that are sure to please!  And ladies…this can work for you too!  If you want to romance your lover and make his jaw drop, I can help you.  Please, listen up!  There are services available in the Smokies that you must know about!  These ideas will make your lover’s heart skip a beat, and the best part is that it is affordable.  There are local businesses that will go into your cabin before your arrival and adorn it with rose petals, candles, love poems, chilled champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, and even “fun baskets” for the bedroom!  My husband and I honeymooned in the Smokies and he shocked me by having the entire cabin decked out upon our arrival!  I melted!  As we entered the cabin, I gazed around to find the cabin lit up with candles, and soft romantic music was playing in the background.  We walked into the bedroom, and there were rose petals on the bed in the shape of a heart, and inside of the heart, rose petals spelled out the words “I love you.”  We walked towards the heart-shaped jacuzzi and there were luxurious, pampering bath salts, bubble baths, lotions, potions, and massage oils awaiting us.  There was a chilled bottle of sparkling champagne and chocolate covered strawberries for us to share!  Talk about romance?!  I was blown away!  I literally felt like I had just stepped into the scene of romance novel!  We relaxed in the hot tub on the deck overlooking the mountains…and then we enjoyed every other room of the cabin!  It was pure blss!                                                                                 

One of the BEST parts about escaping to the Smokies for your romantic getaway is that once the two of you have enjoyed some romantic one-on-one time, and you are ready to venture back out into the world again, there are endless activities for you to enjoy as a couple.  There are fantastic dinner shows, wineries, outlet malls, fabulous eateries, candy shops, scenic helicopter rides, white water rafting, skiing, hiking, fishing, horseback riding, and the famous Dollywood, of course!  There really is something for everyone here.  You need to try the Smokies for your romantic getaway!!  Please, enjoy your time!  And remember, it is all about the romance…xoxo! 

*The excitement about going on romantic getaways is bringing back all those warm and fuzzy feelings you experienced when you very first fell in love!  Fall in love ALL over again!!  Bring back the fairy tale...or start a new fairy tale... I want to hear what you think of the Smokies!  Let me know how YOUR romantic getaway goes.  I can’t wait to hear from you!  :)  Post your comments below.  And if you have ANY questions, I am more than happy to assist you.  Email me at iheartdixiexoxo@gmail.com.  Thank you for visiting my website!  :D
