    OMG that train with transparent rooftop is absolutely cool! My 4yo son would have enjoyed it a lot!

      He might like the cave with 145ft waterfall inside as well! They shut all the lights off and then start the music and illuminate the falls. It’s really cool.

    Oooh nice! Chattanooga looks fantastic to explore in the Fall! I love the waterfalls, the sound of Rocktoberfest and the amazing views from the incline railway!

    p.s. I totally agree about autumn being the best season. If you can, you should go to japan during that time of year. Their fall colours will blow you away!!

      Thank you!

      Japan is definitely on my list! I wanted to go for the Olympics this year, but I won’t be able to make it. Maybe I’ll try to visit sometime in the fall instead. Do you have pictures?

    Chattanooga looks like a great place to visit! Glen Falls would definitely be on my bucket list of things to do in the area.

      We hiked a new place this weekend called Sunset Rock, the hike is a little longer, but the views are incredible! Add it to your list if you get a chance!

    Chattanooga is a great place. We did many of the same things when we visited Chattanooga a few years ago. In addition to what you did, we also went to Ruby Falls, which is a 145ft underground waterfall located within Lookout Mountain. They illuminate it beautifully which makes for real nice photos.

      We did Ruby Falls on our first trip. I expected it to be really touristy and lame, but when the lights turned on I was so impressed!

    I love Tennesee fall! I haven’t spent much time in Chattanooga (besides driving through) but would love to spend a weekend there (:

    Definitely didn’t realize that Chattanooga had so much going on. So many beautiful vistas! I know Nashville is pretty hot right now. Do you recommend Chattanooga over Nashville?

      Thank you!
      I very much recommend Chattanooga over Nashville. We also visited Nashville in the fall and it was incredibly overcrowded. We were able to find a few places on the outskirts that seemed to be more for the locals. I like Chattanooga because you still get the feel of a city, but with fewer people. There also seems to be more outdoor activities in Chattanooga.

      We’re also not really people who like to spend time at loud bars. Nashville has a ton of “honky-tonks.” It’s worth at least walking down Broadway if you’re there just to see all the people.

    I would love to attend the Rocktoberfest! The whole time looks like fun! You have a bit of everything, festive to hiking to museums to ice cream!

      Haha! We like to bounce around quite a bit and get the real feel of a place. It’s taken a few trips to see all of it, but each time we fall in love with Chattanooga a little more.

    Looks like a stunning place, I especially love the hikes. Autumn is a great season, however it’s way too wet in England!

      I bet all of that rain is annoying. I hope someday you get a chance to make it over here to experience the season. I actually grew up in Maine. As far as I’m concerned Northern New England has the best “leaf peeping” in the United States. 🙂

    Fall is definitely one of my favorite times of the year too and those views at Lover’s Leap are just stunning! (I’m assuming that picture is of Lover’s Leap hahaa.) A fall foliage cruise is totally up my alley and I’m going to have to look into booking myself one for this year. Thanks for adding Chattanooga on my radar!

      Yes! That is from Lover’s leap! There are some incredible views from Lookout Mountain. There’s another place called Sunset Rock. Check it out if you get a chance!

      The cruise sounded wonderful. The only reason we haven’t done it is that we discovered it too late. Keep me updated if you end up going!

      I love Chattanooga. It’s got the feel of a city without being so crowded. I hope you make it there soon 🙂
