We visited all the regular tourist places that people see when they come to Chattanooga. Rock City…a MUST see! This place is a great thing of beauty. At the top you can see 7 states! This is a self-guided tour. Special thanks to the Carters who started Rock City on private property back in the 30’s.
Then on to Ruby Falls…WOW! This was quite a hike and I think the only thing we didn’t like about Ruby Falls was that it was a group tour. Other than that…WOW! 145-foot underground waterfall that they have never found the source to.
Of course we had to catch the famous Tennessee Aquarium. Those sea horses are a thing of wonder! It is a great aquarium and takes several hours to go through…so leave your self plenty of time to take in this adventure. And who would want to miss the IMAX Theater…A Rainforest Adventure…GREAT PRODUCTION!
We don’t want to leave out the incline-railway. At the top you have a view of the entire downtown Chattanooga.
There is one other stop that I just loved! It was one of those accidental things that make trips worthwhile! 2601 Broad Street! I noticed this beautiful mosaic on the building. So I just had to stop and find out about it! We ended up going into several great shops! One was a little shop called the GRAPEVINE of Chattanooga that had clothing, and outdoor equipment; another was an art studio that had unique art! And of course we met the artist Steve Terlizzese of Collage Mosaics that did the mosaic on the building. He does Grandfather Clocks, Wall Mirrors and lots of other things. He also does custom work.
Chattanooga is great for the whole family or a romantic weekend of two. My best advise when visiting Chattanooga is to look for package deals, you will save quite a bit of money.
