Chattanooga, TN

mistya55July 3, 2007

I want to spend the weekend in Chattanooga. It will be my husband and I and 5 kids, 12, 8, 6, 4, 3. I know I would like to do Ruby falls, The Zoo, and Rock City. I will get there around lunch on Friday and plan to leave no later than 7:00 Sunday Night. Do you think I could do anything else in that time frame? I know I want to go to a few souvenir and candy shops. Maybe a really nice park that is local. Is there any kind of botanical garden that has water lilies and koi? Also if you are familiar with the area what would the best order to visit these places? Thanks for any advice you can help with. Misty

Misty,
No one answered I see. Guess Chattanooga isn't a prime vacation spot, but I think there are a lot of things to do. I don't live in Tennessee anymore, but was born there and think it is one of the most beautiful places in this country.
Your vacation has no doubt come and gone; hope you guys had a good time. I don't think you can get much done in a weekend especially with wrestling five kids around, but the places you mentioned were feasible and hope they were fun. I personally like to visit Civil War sites, but probably not that interesting to young children.
Hope you guys enjoyed your trip.
Mary
