New Year's Eve Dancing With the Sharks

Imagine your New Year’s Eve dancing, partying, and eating…with sharks! Celebrate the arrival of 2013 at the 12th Annual Dance with the Sharks New Year’s Eve Party. Have a good time throughout Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies from 9:00 pm until 1:00 am while enjoying heavy hors d’oeuvres and the music of Kevin McGuire & Friends. Share a champagne toast and step out into the night to enjoy the Gatlinburg midnight fireworks display. Price = $149+tax per couple or $79.99 + tax for a single.

Now is the best time to book your lodging and plan a fantastic getaway in the Smoky Mountains to enjoy shopping, restaurants, and attractions. Start the year off right by treating yourself to one of the privately owned luxury homes nearby. A vacation in someone’s private home can be far superior to staying in a hotel.

With so many weddings taking place throughout Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, there is one type of wedding that often gets overlooked...the in-cabin wedding. Did you know that there are wedding companies in Pigeon Forge that will actually bring the wedding right to your doorstep?

Many couples prefer the privacy of a sweet and simple ceremony in their Smoky Mountain cabin. One phone call to Cabin Weddings of the Smokies, and you can have a minister and a photographer (with the most adorable little wedding cake) show up at your door. The scenes below are from Cabin Weddings of the Smokies. The cabin on the right is named "Goodnight Sweetheart," and is available for rent.

If you cringe at the idea of formal attire and gala wedding celebrations, then consider a casual Smoky Mountain cabin wedding. On a typical weekend, you can see weddings taking place everywhere throughout Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. As you drive the Pigeon Forge Parkway, you can actually witness entire wedding parties decked out in formal regalia and posing for pictures.

Now imagine a different scene...simply holding hands with the one you love and having a wedding officiant perform your ceremony. Done and done! Now you can get on with the business of enjoying your time and experiencing the attractions and theaters in the Smoky Mountains. Relax in your cozy cabin or stroll the streets of Gatlinburg hand in hand. Have a romantic dinner in a great restaurant. The wedding scene below right is from Honeysuckle Hills, which offers brides and grooms many wedding options...everything from a small cabin in the woods to a huge event barn.

So many couples these days would rather not get bogged down in too many wedding planning details. They prefer the thought of gathering by the fireplace and sharing their solemn vows with only the closest family and friends.

The in-cabin wedding is the perfect solution for folks who are shy or reluctant about speaking in front of groups. This is a great way to surround yourself only with people who love and support you on your special day. Sometimes the best weddings come together with very few details: a great location, friends, fellowship...and love.

Laughing until we had tears. I’ve never seen anything like the look on my kids’ faces when we drove down the Parkway past Pigeon Forge attractions. Our hotel was so vibrant and the staff was upbeat and helpful. Pigeon Forge is the brightest spot in the Smoky Mountains. The high energy (and clean language) shows we saw in theaters had everyone in my family clapping their hands…even “sour” Uncle George.
