Did you know Ripley’s Aquarium regularly changes up their exhibition room for new interactive attractions? You probably would if you only visit once a year or so and saw different exhibits there, but it’s officially designed to change up every so often, and this Spring there is a new Pearl Harbor exhibit waiting for potential visitors to come see.
The Pearl Harbor exhibit is a three-gallery changeable exhibit featuring models of ships and planes, an interactive map, a life-sized figure of President FDR, a USS Arizona BB-39 Forward Magazine, and, the reason it connects to the Ripley’s Aquarium in the first place, plenty to see and learn about marine life in and around Hawaii, as well as invasive species that were introduced at about that time. See more on this at www.ripleys.com/gatlinburg.
Just one of many new reasons to come stay out in Gatlinburg this season! Reserve with us to enjoy these reasons and many more!

One of the big things we look forward to in the Winter time, and one of the few things you can only find one place for miles and miles around in the Smokies, is Ober Gatlinburg’s Winter Sports season – featuring full-service winter sports hangout for ski, snowboard, snowtube and ice-skating enthusiasts. The Winter Sports season for 2016 is open from now until early Spring (usually the second or third week of March).
For decades, Ober Gatlinburg has been a consistent provider for seasonal entertainment on top of the mountain in the city and the Winter Sports season is no exception. Whether you’ve been skiing the slopes for 20 years or have never had the chance to try, Ober Gatlinburg is a perfect stop for the quieter winter season to look for action and excitement on top of everything else Ober Gatlinburg offers throughout the year.
Winter activities include:
* Snow Tubing
* Ice Skating
* Aerial Tramway
* Alpine Slide
* Scenic Chairlift
* Snowsports lessons
The tramway to Ober Gatlinburg (a recommended visit by itself, much less as a means to get there) is about 30 minutes away from Cosby Hollow Cabin and would make the perfect day-trip style outing – and then you get a quality home deep in the serene Smoky Mountains to come home to after a full day out in the snow! Check availability on this page so you can be able to plan for the right time to come to the Smokies. We hope to see you soon!
