Once saddled with the reputation of being one of the country's dirtiest cities, Chattanooga now boasts a pedestrian-friendly downtown with a network of leafy waterfront trails and free electric shuttles.
Bring the kids along to Tennessee Aquarium and Ruby Falls. Venture out of the city with trips to Ocoee (Ocoee Outdoors, Inc., River Rafting & Tubing, &more). There's more to do: partake in some friendly competition at Escape Experience - Chattanooga Escape Room Games.

To find maps, traveler tips, reviews, and other tourist information, use the Chattanooga online trip itinerary planner.

Washington DC to Chattanooga is an approximately 4-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of bus and subway. Expect a daytime high around 90°F in July, and nighttime lows around 71°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 6th (Mon) early enough to go by car to Gatlinburg.

Gatlinburg

Nestled in the lush, wooded forests of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg is Tennessee’s premier mountain resort destination.
Kids will enjoy Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies and The Island in Pigeon Forge. Explore Gatlinburg's surroundings by going to Hartford (Zipline & River Rafting & Tubing). There's much more to do: cool off at Dollywood, take in nature's colorful creations at Parrot Mountain & Gardens, stroll around Chimneys Picnic Area, and take in the awesome beauty at Mount LeConte.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Gatlinburg trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.
