Gatlinburg is home to an abundance of urban and rural attractions. Ride a sky lift to places where your feet reach far above the clouds, walk the floor of oceans as sharks swim over your head – all in the same day. From Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, to the Ober Gatlinburg Aerial Tramway, to countless other unusual museums, mirror mazes, haunted houses and miniature golf courses, there’s an adventure for every age and an attraction for every interest.
Space Needle – Right in the middle of downtown Gatlinburg, the Space Needle gives you a 360° view from 407 feet up. This is a great place to start your day and plan your route. Bring your map and take a visual tour of what you want to do and where you’ll want to go. As a bonus, the Space Needle offers great pizza and fun arcade games at the bottom floor.
