Chattanooga is a BEAUTIFUL city, surrounded by incredible views! Kids will just LOVE it!

Love that imagery of those old riverboat cruises down the beautiful southern rivers? Yes? Kids - it’s Southern Belle Riverboat time with Chattanooga Riverboat Company. A great way to see the Tennessee River!

Or for something a big more unique, try the Chattanooga Ducks - an adventure on an authentic WWII amphibious landing craft! In Chattanooga? YEP!

From the water to well, water inland - the Tennessee Aquarium not only has amazing creatures to explore, but amazing views! (What did we tell you!)

And those views keep on coming with Ruby Falls - an impressive feat of nature where kids can get lost in the mist, splashing water and deep underground!
