This past weekend, my family and I piled into our van and drove about 4 hours to spend a mini weekend getaway in the mountains of Chattanooga Tennessee. It was very much needed and I am really glad we got to get away.
Sites to See:
While we were there, we packed two wonderful days into sight seeing. I am going to be covering each one separately, but I really just wanted to take a moment to show you all the gorgeousness that was provided to us through this tourist town!
In the area where we stayed, we were just minutes from Ruby Falls, The Incline Railway, Rock City, the Tennessee Aquarium and Imax Theater, the Riverwalk, and more. We took the shuttle to most of these things, which really saved a ton on driving and gas and allowed us time to meet other tourists and some of the locals who helped us pick out places to eat!
We ate at places you can only eat in that area. I wanted to experience the food of the city so we tried Urban Stack — a burger joint known for it’s fresh and locally grown ingredients. The food and atmosphere both were SO amazing! Lupi’s Pizza Pies — this one Kayla discovered online and since they boasted about their fresh mozzarella, she wanted to go and try it. The pizza was fresh and all ingredients were grown locally. Sticky Fingers — this one had to be my most favorite of places to try! The food was amazingly delicious and left me wanting more! Cheeburger, Cheeburger — I have never been to a “build your own burger and fries” joint, but I will be going back! I have never tasted a more juicer burger than the one I had, and Robert got to participate in his very first eating challenge and WON! He ate the one pounder and got his name and photo on the wall of fame.
The Downtown sites:
We stayed at the Chattanooga Marriott which I totally recommend if you go and visit ChattanoogaTennessee. It is located right in the downtown heart of all the attractions. In fact, it was such a gorgeous night on Saturday night that we decided to walk so I could take some photos of the nightlife.
I was sad when our weekend ended and it was time to go home. There were SO many other things that we did not get to do, that I want to go back and try sometime!
