Chattanooga’s Best Attractions

Though the great outdoors are the main draw for many visitors, there are plenty of other wonderful attractions in and around Chattanooga. Chattanooga’s top attractions range from the beauty of the Tennessee River and the rugged landscapes of Lookout Mountain to the historical battles of the Civil War, an extensive collection of American Art, and plenty of fun along the way.  Though you probably won’t have enough time to explore every facet of Chattanooga’s personality, these top attractions are a great place to start this spring.

Downtown Chattanooga

Within the downtown core of Chattanooga are a fun and interesting variety of the scenic city’s best attractions. Discover the reason behind the Scenic City nickname as you walk along the scenic Chattanooga Riverwalk, then hop onboard one of the many scenic river cruises along the Tennessee River.  Afterwards, explore the best aquarium in America, the Tennessee Aquarium.  A river cruise and admission into the aquarium can be combined together for one unforgettable afternoon.  History lovers won’t want to miss the iconic Chattanooga Choo Choo train station that was built in 1909, the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum, and Ross’s Landing, which is the location of The Passage, a memorial to the Cherokee Indian removal and the beginning of the Trail of Tears.  Art lovers will want to stroll through the stunning Bluff View Arts District along the shores of the Tennessee River, and should not miss the exhibitions at both the Houston Museum of Decorative Arts and the Hunter Museum of American Art.
