June 19, 2017

Nightfall Summer concerts in ChattanoogaIt’s not often that people need help planning activities when they are visiting Chattanooga, especially during the summer months. There’s so much to do in the scenic city, that it’s nearly impossible to do it all, at least in one trip.  The adventurous among you will want to hit the trails for a little hiking, biking, or rock climbing.  Or, cool off on the rivers and do a little paddling or white water rafting.  If that’s not your cup of tea, then head into downtown Chattanooga, where you can explore the Hunter Museum of American Art and shop in the trendy Northshore District.  For something a little different, hop aboard the Pints and Pedals beer tour, or enjoy the tastes of Chattanooga on a Southside food tour.  There really is something for everyone.  No matter how you spend your days, know that Friday nights are reserved for the popular Nightfall Concert Series throughout the summer months. Chattanooga is a great place to be this summer.  Book your room at our luxury Bed and Breakfast on Lookout Mountain today!
