Imagine that you're rocketing down a 400-foot snow-covered slope, lying flat on your back in a canvas-covered tube. It's called snow tubing, Smoky Mountains style, and it's the newest reason to make the trip to Ober Gatlinburg for an unforgettable adventure this winter. Ober Gatlinburg has opened its new ten-lane snow tubing park and is drawing crowds of snow tubing enthusiasts.

Even better than you remember when you were a kid and on a much bigger hill with its own Magic Carpet lift back to the top of the hill, this $1.5 million dollar facility is one of the finest in the south, with the capacity to host several hundred visitors per session and 100 percent snowmaking coverage adding to the experience. The park is lit for nighttime fun and just one more reason to visit the Smokies this winter.

When one thinks of Gatlinburg, one usually thinks of mountains. So when Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies was voted as the best aquarium in the U.S. by visitors to TripAdvisor.com, it came as a surprise to some.
Officials from Gatlinburg, TripAdvisor, Ripley's and Commissioner Susan Whitaker of the Tennessee Department of Tourist Development attended a luncheon at the aquarium this week, where Ripley's was awarded a silver trophy. The Gatlinburg aquarium beat out aquariums in cities such as Chicago, Atlanta and Baltimore for the title. Jim Pattison Jr., president of Ripley Entertainment, said winning the award was great, not only for Ripley's, but for Gatlinburg and Sevier County, as well.

Laughing until we had tears. I’ve never seen anything like the look on my kids’ faces when we drove down the Parkway past Pigeon Forge attractions. Our hotel was so vibrant and the staff was upbeat and helpful. Pigeon Forge is the brightest spot in the Smoky Mountains. The high energy (and clean language) shows we saw in theaters had everyone in my family clapping their hands…even “sour” Uncle George.
