About Chattanooga

Situated at the bottom of the Appalachian Mountains, the Southern city of Chattanooga, Tennessee, has a character all its own. It's a bustling city that still maintains some Southern charm and is almost completely surrounded by gorgeous landscapes created by the mountains, the Tennessee River and sandstone formations.

Adventurous and outdoorsy cruisers should definitely plan to explore the Rock City trails, take in the view of seven different states from Lookout Mountain and visit Ruby Falls -- a 145-foot underground waterfall. Families might enjoy visits to the Chattanooga Zoo or Tennessee Aquarium and history buffs can head out to sights like The Passage to learn about the Cherokee Indians and the Trail of Tears or Orchard Knob, a sight that played an important role in the Civil War.

Of course, excellent dining options offering traditional Southern fare abound and a stop for barbecue or authentic Southern fried chicken is a must.
