Two readers will each win 2 passes to travel on the River Gorge Explorer!

We went to the Tennessee Aquarium for the first time last month and were blown away!

Living in Nashville, Chattanooga is only two hours away, so it’s a great day-trip destination. One of my best friends lives in Atlanta, so it’s become a fun place for us to meet up with our families and experience great attractions like the Aquarium!

In my Staycation post, I promised a few more insider tips on the River Gorge Explorer, so here it is:

Even if you’re not an early bird, you might choose to get an extra hour of cruising for FREE. The Aquarium offers the three-hour, “Sunset Special” which is an hour longer excursion aboard the Explorer for the price of a two-hour cruise.
(Full details: Sunset Special Go on the 4:00, 4:30, 5:00, 5:30 or 6 PM Sunset Special and get an extra hour of FREE cruising. Beer, wine and snacks are available for purchase on the three-hour sunset cruises.)
