Aerial view of Gatlinburg

Aerial view of Gatlinburg

In Gatlinburg, this is a view from the space needle. Christus Gardens in the bottom left corner and the sky lift up the side of the mountain. Storm clouds are starting to set in. (I can't remember for sure, but Christus Gardens may have gone out of business and then back in business since this was taken.)

If you are looking for a value-priced attraction in Gatlinburg, this might be your best bet. Not only is it one of the better priced attractions in town (the sky lift costs twice as much), but you can stay as long as you want, and then come back later in the day with your ticket (so you might want to see what everything looks like at night!)

It can be rather scary, especially if you're as afraid of heights as I am. I couldn't get within 5 feet of the railing. It's also high up so it can be quite windy and the metal sounds very creaky, so you wonder when the whole thing will snap in half.
