GATLINBURG, Tenn. (WATE)- A popular East Tennessee attraction is in contention for a national award and needs some help to win it.
Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies has been nominated for Best Aquarium in North America by USA Today 10Best Readers’ Choice. The winner will now be selected via polling.
“These awards are very meaningful to us because a panel of judges does not decide them – they are voted on by the public, our guests who visit our aquarium and come back year after year.” – Ryan DeSear, Regional Manager, Ripley Aquariums.
To vote, visit Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies website at www.ripleyaquariums.com/gatlinburg or their Facebook page for a link to the USA TODAY 10Best Readers’ Choice 2019 voting poll. People can vote once per day, and voting ends on Monday, April 22 at noon ET.
In 2018, USA TODAY 10Best.com named Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies the #2 Best Aquarium in North America, and in 2017 they named Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies the #1 Best U.S. Aquarium.
