$99 per person
Who says you can’t have it all? Gatlinburg offers outdoor adventures, kid-friendly attractions, and laid-back scenic charms that keep families, friends and couples coming back, year after year. No matter your age, you can let loose at a huge selection of Gatlinburg attractions! Gatlinburg is home to America’s best-loved aquarium, which is full of underwater adventures perfect for all ages, and there’s a lot more where that came from. There are over 800 square miles of hiking trails and along the trails are more than 19,000 species of foliage, plants, animals, fungi and insects. What makes the Great Smoky Mountains smoky? Vegetation in the mountains traps and releases moisture giving them their “smoky” appearance.
Check out one of Gatlinburg’s many unique museums, create a one-of-a-kind work of art at an arts & crafts fair, play a quick 18 at a miniature golf course, experience the thrills of a motion simulator and take a spin on a go-cart or bumper car. There are more fish in Ripley’s Aquarium than people who live in Gatlinburg. As crazy as it sounds, the above statement is true! While Gatlinburg receives over 11 million visitors per year, the city only has about 4,000 permanent residents. Meanwhile, Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies is home to over 10,000 sea creatures. Great Smoky Mountains National Park is one of only two locations in the world where you can witness the synchronous fireflies phenomenon where tens-of-thousands of lightning bugs gather in swarms and flash in harmony as the entire forest alternates between light and darkness.
