Time to start planning this year’s lovey-dovey date night for you and your partner! If you’re visiting the Smokies for Valentine’s Day, you can cook a romantic meal, or leave the wining and dining to the professionals. If you’d rather go out for your romantic dinner, you should consider visiting an area restaurant for a unique mountain dining experience. With so many delicious options, the most difficult part of your Valentine’s Day in Gatlinburg should be deciding what to get for dessert!
Take out the guesswork by reserving your table for two at one of these intimate eateries:
