If you are looking for a place to take the bride-to-be and her friends on a fun bachelorette party in Tennessee, Gatlinburg is an excellent choice. The area is home to a wide range of bars, attractions, shops, restaurants, and opportunities for outdoor fun in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Dozens of distilleries and wineries in the area make moonshine and whiskey tasting an excellent choice for a bachelorette party. For example, you can visit Ole Smoky Moonshine Gatlinburg bachelorette party and Barrelhouse to sample their spirits in a rustic, mountain cabin setting. Or you can head to Rocky Top Wine Trail where you can sample wine at five locations in the Smokies.
There is also an impressive arts and crafts community in the region. The Art Studio of the Smokies is a popular venue that offers customized paint parties. Your group can sip on their favorite wines or other beverages while painting their own masterpieces. Another option is to book a cooking class with a local chef. This is a great idea for the foodie bachelorette or one who loves to cook!
A murder mystery dinner is a great way to break the ice with your group. You and your guests will play the part of sleuths as you try to solve the murder case. Then, you can enjoy a delicious meal together!
For something a little more unique, consider doing a bachelorette scavenger hunt. You can tailor the hunt to be specific to your group’s interests and keep it PG or a bit more bawdy. It is a great way to see the city and bond with your friends in a new way.
The Smokies is also home to a burgeoning craft beer scene. Several local breweries offer tours and tastings for visitors. You can even create your own customized brews. The best part is you can enjoy your craft brews in a beautiful view of the mountains.
In addition to booze, there are plenty of places to hear live music in the region. You can find local talent at venues like Ole Red in downtown Gatlinburg or The Listening Room Cafe in Pigeon Forge. There are also a variety of other venues that offer live music.
After a long night of drinking and dancing, a massage is a wonderful way to relax. You can find a number of spas in the region including massage at Oak Haven Resort in Sevierville, or you can pamper the bride to be with in-cabin massages.
If you prefer a more laid back bachelorette party, you can always stay in and enjoy your cabin rental. Many cabins like Morning Glory or Gatehouse 503 have fully equipped kitchens that allow you to cook a home-cooked meal or throw a movie and snack party. You can also find cabins that sleep up to 14 people so you have ample space for the entire group. You can even reserve a game-room or hot tub to make your time at the cabin extra special.
