For those of you who cannot link your memory to Gatlinburg, it is an artistic (both fabricated and naturally built) city in the state of Tennessee. Gatlinburg swallows a broad bite of The Great Smoky Mountains, by virtue of which it is known. As one of the most commercialized cities in and around, it fails not to attract tourists like a flower attracting bees, in this Great Smokies National Park.
STROLL THE STREETS
Neighbouring the cities of Pigeon Forge and Sevierville, ample tourist attractions are readied in Gatlinburg for appraisals. Monster trucks showing off their ruggedness and helicopters hovering taller than the gargantuan ‘King Kong’ towering the Wax Museum is what you’ll lay your eyes on, the earliest as you drive/walk past the main streets.
RIPLEY’S BELIEVE IT OR NOT
To go into this building with your companions after dusk will make your journey through the unearthly path only spookier and will leave you some heebie-jeebies. It’ll more or less delight you with an amazing range of inscrutable and kinky collection of awfully unbelievable (duh!) facts, records, videos, paintings, and replicas.
A family-favoured attraction as the Ripley’s Aquarium is sure to keep you gasping with a lot of slimy sea creatures. You’ll be fancied to believe it as a portal into the sea world of ray bays, jellyfish, giant sharks, moray eels and many others. Give your love by stroking doctor fishes and ray bays in a pool and feel closer to nature.
MONSTER TRUCK RIDES AND ATV RIDES
For those of you who are looking for adventure in the city limits, 12000 pounds, 12 feet tall and 5.5-foot tyres shaping a monster will you give you a ride of five laps for just $10. A recommendable place to roar the tracks with these monsters is at ‘Outdoor Adventures of The Smokies’ that also includes ATV rides in its attraction list.
If you’re looking to get your adrenaline pumped, a helicopter ride is a must that will let you lay stretch your sight as far as the scenery of the park screeches. Plus, it’ll leave you to suffice to converse with your friends and family back at home.
SPACE NEEDLE OBSERVATION TOWER AND CABLE CAR JOURNEYS
A 407 feet tall space needle gives you 360 degrees sweeping view of Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountains. The aerial tramways that are regularly departed from downtown chairlifts you for 2.1miles all the way to Amusement Park and Ski area at Ober Gatlinburg.
Gatlinburg is an eye opener to have housed many adventurous attractions that make it ideal for a city that is located closest to the mountains.
Pointer: An authentic Mexican restaurant ‘Loco-Burro’ that comes with a rooftop patio is to look out for in this commercialized city in the park.
