The end of the year is drawing near, and as you rush from store to store searching out the perfect gifts for your friends and families, in the back of your mind looms the question of the day: What am I going to do for New Year’s Eve? In previous years you knew exactly where all the hottest events were taking place and probably had it planned out in June where you would be on December 31st, but this year is slightly different. This year, you are exploring a neighborhood that only became yours rather recently. This year you are celebrating in your brand-new Smith Mountain Lake home! And because we at Smith Mountain Lake Properties do not believe in stopping, even after the keys are in your hand and those final papers have been signed, this guide to New Year’s 2022 activities in Smith Mountain Lake has been created to help you navigate your new life in the area.

Enjoy a Special Dinner

The holidays have thus far been about doing for everyone else, but tonight is all about taking care of you! Starting the new year out on the right foot is easy when you enjoy the special meal offered by the Landing Restaurant, located at 1217 Graves Harbor Trail in Huddleston. Serving a special menu, their surf and turf dinner featuring Wagyu Flank Steak and Crispy Shrimp is definitely a conversation ender—no one will want to talk when this delicious dish is in front of them! Also offering a special New Year’s Eve cocktail called the New Year’s Sparkler made with Absolut Mandarin, pomegranate, and Prosecco, The Landing promises to offer the first of many great New Year’s Eve memories. Don’t forget your vaccine card, as Smith Mountain Lake restaurants require them for entry.

Some Quiet Contemplation Time

2021 has been an interesting year, to say the least, filled with uncertainty, relief, and every emotion in between, and you are probably more than ready for the new year to arrive. A quiet walk around Smith Mountain Lake will give you some time to contemplate 2021 and concentrate on what you hope 2022 will bring. The feel of the cool night air kissing your cheeks, the sounds of the lake as it splashes against the shoreline, and the quiet of the night, interrupted occasionally by outbursts of distant laughter. This walk may not be the most exciting thing you have ever done on New Year’s Eve, but it will definitely be the most soul fulfilling.
