The Destination
Grab your walking shoes—Chattanooga's leafy pathways and miles of waterfront trails secure the Tennessee city's reputation as one of the country's most pedestrian-friendly towns. There's more than enough Southern charm to go around in this picturesque locale, where you'll find a plethora of activities from family-friendly arts and culture to adult-oriented nightlife to round out your view. Framed by various mountains and ridges and anchored in the heart of downtown, colorful Chattanooga has earned its nickname as "The Scenic City."

The Digs
Hop aboard the Chattanooga Choo Choo—where the "RR" sign announces Rest and Relaxation. This one-of-a-kind historic hotel was once a bona fide railway station; but today, some sleeper cars have transformed into guest rooms, the baggage area has become the The Station House Restaurant, and the terminal dome room now plays host to the main lobby. In addition to two cozy double beds, Standard and Train Car rooms come with free Wi-Fi, a coffee maker, and more.

The Diversions
After checking in, roll full steam ahead to the Model Railroad Museum, home of one of the largest model railways open to the public. If you want to stretch your legs, hike through Rock City past ancient stone formations or climb to the top of Lookout Mountain for a stunning view. Dinnertime calls for a trip to the Silver Diner—a casual '50s-style pizza eatery inside a converted train car. Later, treat yourself to an old-time malt or hand-dipped ice cream cone at the Sweet Stop Ice Cream & Candy Shoppe.

  • "Its lobby showcases what was once the grand entrance to Terminal Station. A former streetcar rides the rails on a journey around the grounds, while nearby there's a massive model railroad display."
