The Lost Sea

Hello all,

Starting to plan trips for next year. Has anyone been to The Lost Sea in Sweetwater Tenn.? How was it? Also any recommendations for things to do between there and Great Smoky Mountains NP?
Thanks!

My wife and I, along with some friends have visited there a couple of times. Just remember, no mater what the temperature outside, it's always significantly cooler down in the depths, so bring a sweater or light jacket. It's quite entertaining and informative, there's a guide that accompanies you the entire tour, and they are quite willing to answer your questions all along the way. Certainly one of the highlights is the boat tours on the underground lake. It is amazing how large it is, how many fish are in it, and the questiosn that arise as to how they got there. Typical souvenir shops looking for your money at the end of the tour.

After that........there's tons to see and do in Sevierville, Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, and I mean tons. The general scenery approaching the Smoky Mountains is breathtaking. If you can't find somehting to see, do, enjoy in this area, you're just the kind of person to enjoy vacationing. Great KOA in Pigeon Forge too. Depending on the time of year, book early.

The Lost Sea was great. Be prepared for some uphill climbing, however. Not too bad, though. Tuckaleechee caverns, and Forbidden Caverns are also worth a look in the Gatlinburg area near Newport, Tenn. You can spend a week in the Smokies, and still not see everything. Dollywood is also a great place to visit- plenty to do and see, even for the adults! Randy
