My husband and I are planning a "second honeymoon" trip to Gatlinburg in late August. We went to Gatlinburg for one night during our honeymoon six years ago. We did all the Ripley's museums, Stars Cars, etc that last time around and are looking for some other ideas as to what to do this time. We didn't get to visit the Aquarium last time, so that's definately on the list. I've also been seeing a lot of brochures and such on the Winery in Gatlinburg. Is this worth a trip? How is their wine? From what I've understood, the "tour" isn't much to speak of, but would it be worth going to pick up a few bottles of wine? We also want to do either the Ober Tram or the Sky Lift as we didn't do either of those our last trip. From what I understand, there's nothing at the top of the Sky Lift, but I'd rather have that, then a "bad taste left in my mouth" by the Ober area if it's as run down as the reviews I've read. I'm a little scared of heights though, so I'm worried about how I'm going to handle the chair lift. Which has the better view of the mountains and city at the top?
I'm sure I'll have lots more questions as I continue to plan, so thanks in advance for all your help!
