CHATTANOOGA

And then there's Chattanooga. It's only 30-35 minutes away, and there's so much to do. 

One thing I like to do is to drive across the river and park near Frasier Ave. Walk around the eclectic shops and Coolidge Park and then walk across the Walnut Street walking bridge. Explore the area around the Aquarium - go down the steps to the river. And then walk past the Hunter Museum and around the Bluff Street Art District. Stop at Rembrandts for coffee. :) And, of course, you can go to all the more regularly publicized places like Ruby Falls, Rock City, the Aquarium, Chattanooga Choo Choo, Hunter Museum, etc. - Chattanooga is great! They recently changed the area near the Choo Choo and opened what's becoming a sort of famous guitar museum. It's getting some serious national attention.
