I kicked off September with a long weekend trip to Chattanooga, TN! We took advantage of some mileage we’ve accrued and a family member’s summer house for this trip.
Places we went:
- Ruby Falls
Ruby Falls is a really cool underground waterfall. You walk through a cave to get to it, about a half mile to get to it. Despite the terrible parking and slow pace of the tour, it was very cool to see.
- Rock City
A beautiful garden laden with gnomes and fairytales. It also has a point where you can overlook 7 states at once. We counted 72 gnomes on the trails but apparently missed a few!
- The Tennessee Aquarium
This aquarium is split up into a freshwater building and ocean building which is pretty cool! My favorite part were the lemurs and the butterfly garden.
- Chattanooga Choo choo
Make sure to check out the train cart that’s also a bar!
- Chattanooga Whiskey Distiller
I don’t like whiskey…but I love a good distillery tour.
Notable Places we ate:
1. Adelle’s Creperie
2. Tupelo Honey Cafe
3. Velo Coffee
I think Chattanooga is definitely up and coming. Looks like they’re introducing pedal tours and they even have a free bus to shuttle you around. My favorite part was all of the old brick factory buildings – I’m a sucker for old buildings! It was a quick, easy going trip and I definitely didn’t expect to see some of the gems I did!
