The Lights Over Gatlinburg event at Gatlinburg SkyLift Park features festive Christmas decorations and thousands of twinkling lights to brighten up the night! After enjoying your ride to the top of Crockett Mountain aboard the SkyLift, take a stroll around to soak up the holiday spirit! Whether you are spending a romantic evening as a couple or visiting with the entire family, everyone will love the magical atmosphere! If you get chilly, head on over to the fire pit to warm up with a cup of hot chocolate or cider!

2. SkyBridge Tunnel of Lights

One of the most incredible Smoky Mountain attractions is the Gatlinburg SkyBridge, which is the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in North America! This bridge literally crosses the sky as it stretches 680 feet across a deep valley in a single span. The midpoint of the bridge sits 140 feet above the valley, and there are even glass floor panels to see straight down! The SkyBridge has been changed into a tunnel of lights for the holiday season! There is nothing quite like the sight of the vibrant lights stretching out across the mountain, so you won’t want to miss this unique experience!

3. Incredible Gatlinburg Views

If you happen to be in the Smokies on New Years Eve, be sure to check out the New Year’s Eve Ball Drop Viewing Party!
