This Beautiful City Is The Perfect Weekend Getaway For Any Nashvillian
Nashville is an absolutely amazing city, but like all places, it’s a good idea to get away from it from time to time, and explore the other wonderful places around. Nashville has plenty of great day trip and weekend trip options, but none of them are quite as perfect for the whole family as Chattanooga. What makes Chattanooga so special? Here are just a few of the things that you simply can’t pass up when you visit this Tennessee gem.
Just a few short hours to the southeast of Nashville, Chattanooga is the perfect escape, and you don't even have to take time off work to get there.
Chattanooga has so many things to do, you certainly won't be able to get them all done in a weekend. Check out the Southern Belle, a riverboat that shows off the stunning scenery of the Tennessee River valley.
Be sure to check out the city's incredible restaurants, including the newer Warehouse Row shopping center with great spots like Public House and St. John's Restaurant.
Renting a bike is a great way to get around downtown. But no matter your mode of transportation, be sure to walk out on the Walnut Street Bridge, which is a great spot to see the sunset over the city and the river.
The Tennessee Aquarium is right downtown on the water front and is home to tens of thousands of animals. It's consistently ranked as one of the best public aquariums in the country, and once you visit, it'll be easy to see why.
During your visit to Chattanooga, you'll want to take the Incline Railway up the summit of Lookout Mountain. The 72.7% grade makes it one of the steepest passenger trains in the world!
Once you get to the top of Lookout Mountain, you'll want to head under it to the famous and stunning Ruby Falls, a nearly 150-foot underground waterfall!
Lastly, head to Point Park at the tip of Lookout Mountain. It's a great place to see stunning views of Chattanooga and the Tennessee River.
