Fall Colors in Chattanooga
September 28, 2015
Fall has fully descended upon us here in Chattanooga, and we couldn’t be more excited about it. Fall is, perhaps, our favorite season in the Chattanooga area, which has long been a favorite outdoor destination for adventure enthusiasts. With a tremendous variety of things to do in the great outdoors, from hiking, biking, and rockclimbing, to boating, caving, and whitewater rafting, we can’t think of a better place to get out and have a little fun, all while enjoying the specatcular fall color that paints the horizons this time of year. Though there is no exact science to predicting the peak of Chattanooga’s fall foliage, things are definitely well underway, making October the perfect time to visit the scenic city of Chattanooga. Book your room at our luxury Tennessee Bed and Breakfast, so you can get out and experience Chattanooga is all of its fall colored glory.
Whether you choose to experience the vibrant fall color in Chattanooga by bike, boat, train, foot, or car, you can’t go wrong. If you’re up for getting out the city, you can’t go wrong hiking or biking your way along the ridges at Stringers Ridge Park or Enterprise South Nature Park. We can’t talk about fall color without talking about the miles of beautiful trails and stunning viewpoints from the top of Lookout Mountain. Atop Lookout Mountain you’ll find not only one of the most famous views of Chattanooga, but arguably one of the most beautiful, especially during the brightly-hued autumn months. For an easy to do activity in downtown Chattanooga, we recommend borrowing a bike from Chattanooga’s popular bike share system and heading along the scenic and colorful 13 mile riverwalk. Better yet, if you’d rather travel down the river through the beautiful colors of fall, hop on board the Southern Belle Riverboat and enjoy their guided tour of the Tennessee River.
For something a little more unique to enjoy, hop onboard the Tennessee Valley Railroad. Take a ride on the Summerville Steam Special in October and November, you’ll be riding a vintage train through some of the most spectacular areas of fall color in all of Tennessee and Georgia. Of course, you can always just hop in your car and drive the roads in and around Chattanooga and still be rewarded with falls most colorful show. The newly minted Pie-in-the-sky trail is perhaps the perfect scenic byway to choose to maximize your fall color tour. This wonderful tour is the best way to see the the peaks and valleys of beautiful Southeast Tennessee. Take a little extra time to explore the many great attractions along the way, such as state parks, Civil War sites, African American heritage sites, live music venues, farms, and more. No matter what it is you do, we know that the brilliant fall color will delight even the wariest traveler. Book your room at our luxury Lookout Mountain Bed and Breakfast today.
