A Fun City With Plenty To Do
Sometimes all it takes is a weekend away from home to reconnect, recharge, and reset. For my family, Chattanooga, TN is a fantastic place to do just that. Chattanooga has no shortage of things to do for kids AND adults. Because of its proximity to our home town, we’ve spent many weekends in this fun and entertaining city.
This is one of the few cities you can visit where you can climb in one of the largest climbing gyms in the country, walk across one of the longest pedestrian bridges in the world, visit Civil War battlefields, admire a jellyfish exhibition, and squeeze through rock boulders alongside tiny gnomes statues--all in one weekend!
"Best Outdoor Town" Distinction
In addition to a fun downtown with its variety of good local restaurants and breweries, Chattanooga's many outdoor opportunities earned it Outside Magazine’s “Best Town” twice. So, as you can see, there’s plenty to entertain the whole family.
Ditch the Car and Walk Everywhere
I love to visit a city where I can park the car at my lodging and keep it there for the weekend. Chattanooga has a compact and walkable downtown with good sidewalks, bike lanes, and a really nice Riverwalk along the river. Many sites and activities are within walking distance of most downtown hotels. If the kids are tired of walking, the entertainment continues with a ride on a free downtown electric trolley that will shuttle you from point to point.
Labor Day weekend is coming up, and this would be a terrific destination. Check out our simply awesome free Chattanooga itinerary!
