Chattanooga, TN is a beautiful town nestled down in the south near the Georgia state line. It is a great area to vacation with family featuring many attractions and historical areas. This area can get quite cold in the winter, but is pleasant most of the year. There is a wide array of shopping and dining, and something for everyone.

Chattanooga is home to several family attractions. One of my favorite places to visit is the Tennessee Aquarium. The aquarium is home to over 12,000 animals and is beautifully laid out and handicap accessible. The River Journey addition is the largest freshwater aquarium in the world. Some of the animals seen here are jellyfish, tiger sharks, stingrays, octopus, and many more. This aquarium is also the only one to have ever bred sea dragons.
Across from the Aquarium is the I-Max 3D theater. Warner Park is a 13 acre zoo and located near down town. Ruby Falls is the site of an underground 145 foot waterfall. There are several "See Rock City" signs painted all over the southeast and midwest advertising this attraction. Rock City hosts several events throughout the year such as a corn maze in the fall and Christmas lights during the holidays. The Lookout Mountain Incline Railway is about a one mile stretch that you can ride up the mountain.
If you like sports, this is also the home of the Chattanooga Lookouts baseball team. Located downtown at the AT&T field, tickets start at $4. There are also numerous places in the area to hunt, fish, rock climb, hike, or go mountain bike riding.
As you can see there are plenty of things to do in Chattanooga. It's a place your family will make many memories to share for years to come. For more further information on staying in Chattanooga, please visit the city's Visitor Information website.
