Now that winter is truly upon us in Gatlinburg, TN there are plenty of snowy days to enjoy skiing, snow tubing and ice skating. However, if your family is staying in a Gatlinburg Cabin Rental and wants to do something a little warmer they can easily spend an entire day wandering around the Ripley Aquarium of the Smokies. No matter how old your kids are, age 3 to 73, they will love everything that the aquarium has to offer.
With ten different areas for your family to explore the aquarium is the best way to beat the winter blues. Check out the penguins in their own playhouse, safely touch a sting ray, admire the strong beauty of the sharks and take a stroll through the rainforest – all in the same day! You can enjoy the aquarium 365 days of the year for the price of $21.98 per adult, $10.99 for kids age 6-11 and $2.99 for kids age 2-5.
Don’t worry about packing a lunch for everyone because the Feeding Frenzy Eatery has everything you need to fill up hungry bellies with. Even the pickiest eaters can find something they like on the menu that includes cheeseburgers, crispy fries, PB&J sandwiches, tuna salad sandwich and, of course, cookies. Don’t forget to stop in the Cargo Hold Store to pick up some mementos from your day at the aquarium.
The Ripley Aquarium is just a twenty minute drive from your luxury cabin rental at Elk Springs Resort. If you need directions or have any other related questions, don’t hesitate to contact us at the main office.
