Chattanooga, Tennessee is a city full of exciting attractions and natural wonder. Chattanooga is surrounded by beautiful mountain ranges and sits along the Tennessee River. There is much to see and do during a visit to this magnificent city.

EscapeWizard.com invites you to book your next trip to Chattanooga, Tennessee.  The city can be accessed by Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport (CHA). Book your flight today with EscapeWizard.com: To do so, please follow the link to make flight arrangements (www.escapewizard.com/flight.php). And, when booking your hotel with EscapeWizard.com, please refer to our top selections of hotels in the Chattanooga area for assistance with finding accommodations.  Our top selection is the Holiday Inn Express which always provides outstanding service. Then vacationers can follow this link (www.escapewizard.com/hotels.php?flag=htl) to book through EscapeWizard.com.

With so much to see, EscapeWizard.com suggests you start your tour on the riverfront. Over the past couple decades Chattanooga has become a hot tourist spot and much of that is owed to the attractions that have been built up along the riverfront. Chattanooga experienced a surge in economic growth after the Civil War, but it got too big too fast, and by the 1970's it was seen as a city in decline. Chattanooga has had a large resurgence in tourism over the last few decades. The city's prime location along the riverfront, combined with the stunning mountain ranges surrounding the city, helped to bring people back to Chattanooga.

EscapeWizard.com suggests checking out the Tennessee Aquarium along the riverfront. It is said to house the largest freshwater aquarium in the world! Children and adults will marvel at the wide display of underwater creatures.

Today there is much of Chattanooga's past woven into its present. The old railroad terminal station has been renovated into a hotel. The building still displays the beaux art style of the original station and is decorated to re-create the feel of a terminal. Exposed brick, chandeliers and an impressive dome will take you back in time. Escapewizard.com recommends taking a trip to the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum if you like trains! This museum opens visitor's eyes to the history of locomotives. In fact the collection is so complete, that some of the museum's materials have been used in popular movies!

If you like exploring, EscapeWizard.com suggests spending a day at Raccoon Mountain Caverns. If you visit in the summer, you'll enjoy the cool air underground. It's usually around 60 degrees year round in the caverns. They span over 5 miles underground, so there is much to explore! You're invited to take a walking tour on well maintained paths, or if you want to get a little messy you can take a more strenuous tour, as you climb and crawl your way to new discoveries.

For vacationers who enjoy the water, EscapeWizard.com recommends getting out on the Ocoee River. This river was the same body of water where many Olympic events took place in 1996, when the games were in Atlanta. Row like a champion along the rapids, or relax as you float along the river in a boat, canoe or tube! There are so many places to ride, check with your host to see where they recommend getting into the water.
