After a day of chasing thrills at all of the top attractions around town and being blown away by your incredible experience at The Greenbrier, spend a day in our dearly loved Great Smoky Mountains National Park. You can continue your flow of adrenaline by hiking up to a stunning mountain peak or switch gears and relax with a scenic drive and a streamside picnic. Explore the stunning cascades and waterfalls that lie tucked away in every corner of the hills or if it’s a hot summer day, find a swimming pool and get lost for a while in tranquility of the park. Watch sunrise together over coffee or wrap up the day with a sunset and reminisce about the adventures of the day. Take a trip to Cades Cove, into Cataloochee Valley, or see all that the Roaring Fork Motor Trail in Gatlinburg has to offer. Every year countless couples fall in love, get engaged, and get married in the national park and well, there’s no reason that we can't put your name on that list too!
