Don’t Forget Your Honey this Holiday

Don’t get so wrapped up on the hustle and bustle of the holiday that you forget your honey. You’re trying to make sure you have the right gifts for the kids, making travel plans, trying to stick to a budget… and just like that the most wonderful time of the year has become a bit hectic for you and your significant other.

To put the joy back into the season, what about escaping from the holiday crush for a while and heading out for a special date night or afternoon with your honey in Kingsport?

There’s any number of incredible restaurants where you can enjoy lunch or dinner, starting with local favorite Giuseppe’s, one of the region’s premier dining experiences where you’ll find delicious, authentic Italian cuisine. Craving Asian Cuisine? You can’t go wrong with Stir Fry Cafe, in downtown Kingsport, and if it’s a great steak you’re in the mood for, Chop House never disappoints.

Get your mind off of the holiday madness by catching a movie.  The Kingsport NCG Cinema has all of the latest releases, not to mention yummy popcorn and plenty of other snacks. And if you’re looking for a last-minute present, a movie gift certificate is something everyone can enjoy!

One of the best things about this time of the year is the return of classics like The Nutcracker and Scrooge. Fortunately, Kingsport is blessed to have an annual presentation of The Nutcracker from the Kingsport Ballet, which will definitely get you into the spirit of the holiday, as will the Kingsport Theater’s production of Scrooge The Musical.

If you enjoy being outside, there’s no better place to get into the outdoors than Kingsport. One of the most beautiful spots in the region is Bays Mountain, where you can go ziplining or even take a romantic barge ride around the lake. If hiking gets your blood flowing, the two of you can trek around the lake or venture up to the Fire Tower and bring along a picnic lunch to enjoy.

After a day of dining, enjoying a holiday classic or a movie, and hiking around Bays Mountain, you might want to settle in for drinks at MeadowView Conference Resort and Convention Center’s Horse Creek Lounge, or grab a craft beer at Bays Mountain Brewing, Model City Tap House, or some cider at Gypsy Circus Cidery.

And what if all you really want to do is relax? Agota Springs, our full-service day spa that sits on 120 acres of gorgeous and serene woodlands, has couples massages, facials, body wraps, and much more to help drop your stress level.

No matter what you choose to do, there’s no shortage of fun in Kingsport – especially during this time of the year so recharge those holiday batteries and enjoy your time together!
