We rode the trolley into Gatlinburg. The strip is loaded with shops and eating places and people everywhere.
We committed to do only one paid attraction. Since there is plenty to see and do and walk and shop.
The Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies made it to the top of our list. And it did not disappoint.
My favorite was the under water tunnel
thru the shark tank.
I could have stayed in that section for a longer time. But we stood on a conveyor belt type thing that slowly carried you thru the tunnel then on to all the exhibits in the Aquarium.
We walked the complete strip, up one side and down the other, ate lunch, and rode the trolley back to the trolley station and then back to the RV Resort, walked the Poochie Dog, and called it a day.
