Nashville and Memphis might be the most popular and most musical cities in the Volunteer State, but they don’t call Chattanooga the Scenic City for nothing. Surrounded by the natural beauty of the Tennessee River and the mountain ridges of the Appalachian foothills, it’s no wonder this outdoorsy town is replete with fun things to do for locals and travelers of all stripes.
Once in town, you’ll be overwhelmed by a desire to spend a whole lot of time outside of your hotel, strolling through some of the small but mighty museums, shopping at some popular boutiques and, of course, eating your heart out at the best restaurants in town. But remember, Chattanoogans are all about taking it easy, keeping it local and making sure to partake in activities with an eye towards all things sustainable.
As usual, we're here to help. In no particular order (how could you ever choose just one thing to do in such a wonderful city?) here is a list of some incredibly fun sights and attractions to tackle in town. Get ready to explore…
