Nashville is 132-miles from Chattanooga, TN. With this distance from Nashville, you can get to your destination in just 2-hours and 5-minutes.

It’s always good to be aware of the roads you’ll be traveling on before you embark on your road trip.

One of the first places you’ll pass by is the city of Murfreesboro, TN. This area played a significant role in the Civil War, and has many historical sites such as battlegrounds, graveyards, and plantations you can tour. Spend a couple of hours here to take a trip back in time and learn more about the history of the nation.

After you get back on the road, when you pass the Tennessee River, you’re only 20-miles from Chattanooga, TN. This is one of the most scenic parts of the ride, as the glistening water seems to appear out of nowhere. You’ll spend about 8-minutes suspended over the waters where you can take in the beautiful view.
