Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies - Gatlinburg

Friday, May 18, 2012

I think I enjoy most anything we decide to do on vacation. I am very excited to be taking the kids to Ripley's Aquarium in Gatlinburg! I can only remember visiting another aquarium once in my life and that was on my honeymoon. That was also a Ripley's Aquarium.

The amazing view of so many different types of animals that inhabit our oceans is simply breathtaking.

Although Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies is hundreds of miles from the ocean, the scenic beauty and the abundance of water all around makes the town of Gatlinburg a “natural” location for a world-class aquarium, voted America’s #1 aquarium by TripAdvisor!

ALL NEW at the Aquarium for a LIMITED TIME!

Have an up close view of shark skin. Have “shark vision.” Guess what unusual man-made objects have been found in a shark’s stomach. Experience the force of shark bite!
