Episode 38 – Ripley’s Aquarium, Tanger Outlets, and the Crib Gap Trail

Episode 38 of Smoky Mountains Radio takes a look at Ripley’s Aquarium in Gatlinburg, Tanger Outlets in Sevierville, and our Spotlight Hike of the Week, the Crib Gap Trail.


Ripley’s Aquarium

Containing more than one million gallons of water, you know you are bound to find plenty of aquatic life under the two story roof of this building.  This aquarium delivers.  There is plenty to keep you busy and justify the 26.99/15.99 price tag for admission.  There are ten areas to explore and thousands of living things to see, and in some cases, touch.  Check out the episode for more information.


Tanger Outlets

The Tanger Outlets are the largest single shopping experience around the Smokies.  If there is a name brand you are looking for, your will find it at this Sevierville location off of traffic light #13.  You will want to bring a comfortable pair of shoes and get a store map before heading out.  Listen to this week’s show to find out more.


Spotlight Hike of the Week 

The Spotlight Hike of the Week this week takes us to the perpetually busy Cades Cove area of the park, but offers solitude and an easy going hiking experience.  An Easy, 1.6 mile one-way trip gives you the chance to get in touch with nature without venturing too far off the beaten path to do it.  Want more about this hike?  Check out this week’s episode.
