Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies in Gatlinburg, TN, is literally teeming with life - over 10,000 exotic sea creatures in 350 individual species. There are more fish in this aquarium than there are people living in the entire town of Gatlinburg!

My boyfriend and I came to get a weekend away, and first thing we did was the aquarium. It is so beautiful. There is so much to see and do on the inside, we have. Done the shark lagoon twice and went thru Ripleys twice...More
