If you love the ocean like I do, this is a must see attraction. It's not actually in Pigeon Forge, but rather a short drive over to Gatlinburg. This is one of those places you don't want to rush through! When you make the turn to go to the Aquarium, drive on past a little ways and there's a great parking garage. I believe it was $1.75 an hour, with a maximum fee of $6 , so very reasonable!
I loved how they have the moving sidewalk that goes below the shark tank. You get to see so many types of sharks and other fish while you move along the sidewalk, and it gives an awesome photo op since you are completely surrounded by the tank. It's like walking along the bottom of the ocean, without having to mess with scuba diving equipment! We really enjoyed our tour of Ripley's Aquarium! You can also find them on Facebookand Twitter.
