Tennessee is known for a whole lot of wonderful things, like whiskey and barbecue and heaps of fried chicken and catfish, but most folks don’t know that the state boasts the
longest suspension bridge in the nation. It’s true. You can walk high above the mountains on the Gatlinburg SkyBridge in east Tennessee. It’s a neat experience in itself, but the holiday season just ups the ante on this neat local experience. Come with a coat and take in the view this season, Tennessee. This is one holiday event you won’t want to miss.
Gatlinburg has long been considered one of the most beautiful and festive small towns in Tennessee. It's where you go to cuddle up in cabins and indulge in mugs of hot cocoa, held close to the chest with loved ones by your side. Of course, the cozy element is best balanced with a bit of outdoor adventure...
...which the Lights Over Gatlinburg event at Skylift Park provides in spades. From November 25th to January 31st, the incredible SkyLift Park lights up with holiday fun and cheer. The famed SkyBridge goes from the classic view above...
...To a holiday winter wonderland! The SkyLift and SkyDeck are completely decorated with thousands of twinkling lights and decorations perfect for the season.
It's a true sight to see. One of the best views in Gatlinburg gets a total refresh with the infusion of a bit of holiday cheer.
The SkyBridge itself is transformed into a true tunnel of cheer, boasting lights all the way across the mountain.
You can even cozy up inside with hot cocoa or a steaming cup of cider if it gets a bit too chilly. Keep in mind that through Sunday, December 15th, visitors can save $4 on admission tickets by bringing new toys to donate to the Boys & Girls Club of the Smoky Mountains.
Will you be joining in the festivities this year? There's nothing more beautiful than an evening spent amongst twinkling lights and Tennessee's natural, mountainous beauty. Tickets can be bought online by way of the link we've included below, and begin at $20 for adults.
If you’re looking for more information, you can find it on the
official Tennessee Skybridge website.
Indulge in a bit more wintery beauty with a visit to a chilly Fall Creek Falls this season.
