Overlooking the city, Ober Gatlinburg is open all year with amusements galore. It’s popular for the Aerial Tramway, which soars at 1,500 feet for 2.1 miles, giving you an amazing scenic view of the city and the Great Smoky Mountains.
Another iconic landmark in Gatlinburg is the 407-foot Space Needle. The observation deck gives you a 360-degree view of the city and surrounding mountains.
The scenic Chondola is the only fixed-grip Chondola in the world where you can ride in an open-air chair or an enclosed gondola cabin. Or, you can ride the Ridge Rambler passenger trucks on a guided tour through the forest. Both options take you 600 feet up to the top of Anakeesta Mountain.
One of the best things for couples to do in the Smoky Mountains, whitewater rafting is invigorating. Several rafting companies have outposts in Hartford and offer Lower and Upper Pigeon River adventures.
