Sea Turtles

I've always been fascinated by sea turtles.  They're such cool creatures.  My family often vacations down to Fort Morgan, Alabama, and oftentimes during turtle nesting season, you'll see markers all over the beach where they've marked off sea turtle nests.  It's one of my favorite things about that area. They are just genuinely such incredible creatures.  Now you have the opportunity to get up close and personal with a sea turtle in Tennessee.

Get Up Close and Personal With a Sea Turtle

Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies is located in Gatlinburg and it's truly an awesome place to visit.  If you've never visited the aquarium, you definitely need to add it to your to-do list for your next Smoky Mountain vacation. And now on Tuesdays and Thursdays Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies will be offering a special experience with a sea turtle, that sounds like a truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
