Great place to spend the afternoon with friends or family. Amazing animals and there is a lift that gives fantastic experience of what it is like to be underneath the water with sharks! Definitely worth visiting!

One of the best days out in the area. Educational , warm and friendly staff. Good clean restaurant with a variety of food. You have to pay to park, so take change. Yearly family passes available well worth the money.

Best cabin / park stopover Savannah - Great Smoky Mountains (4 Replies)
Good afternoon all, I'm planning a road trip across the Deep South during June/July 2018. Early on our itinerary are Savannah and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Having stayed at state park camping cabins in Florida, I hear that GA has many parks with fantastic facilities. Would anyone be able to suggest state parks with small(er) camping cabins or similar lodgings (linens supplied, with a BBQ/fire pit etc.) which could make a good stopover for two adults our way to NC/TN? ...More
