30 hours in Chattanooga

By 1:05 PM ,

This past weekend we made a fun little family getaway trip to Chattanooga. I think this town is easily looked over and I am not sure why...it is very close to Atlanta (only 2 hours), offers lots of fun for kids and adults alike, and has great food. I would go as far as to say it is a little hidden gem. 

We drove up Friday night and stayed in a Marriott property that offered complimentary breakfast and an indoor pool (because let's be honest - to a 3 year old you are winning with those two amenities alone).

We started off our day by making the trip to Rock City for their Oktoberfest event. It was SO much fun! Our little guy loved exploring all Rock City has to offer and meeting the characters that were there special for the Oktoberfest event while my husband enjoyed the Oktoberfest beverages. ;)

We stayed at Rock City until a little after lunch time exploring and having fun and then headed to Ruby Falls. Ruby Falls was in the process of renovation and the lines were long but well worth the wait. E thought the caves and "HUGE" waterfall were so awesome. 

After Rock City were drove just about a mile up the road to watch the incline railway come down the mountain and check out the cute country store on the side of the road. After watching that we headed to downtown Chattanooga to enjoy a delicious dinner and live bluegrass music by the river. 

We concluded our trip Sunday morning with a little indoor hotel pool time and drove the two hours back to Atlanta. 

I highly encourage you to consider Chattanooga as a fun family weekend getaway. If you go during the month of October they have a ton of family friendly (and even adult haunted houses) that I think would be a blast to participate in...
