    Tucked between the mountains of Southeast Tennessee, along the beautiful Tennessee River, Chattanooga is one of America’s most breathtaking cities.

    There’s a world of outdoor adventure, amazing restaurants, live events, art and world-class attractions waiting for you. One way to get around the city at ease is to rent a bike and follow the recent bicycle transit system.

    Take a cruise on the river or check out the city on a guided tour (choose from duck tours, double decker bus or walking tours). Don't miss the Tennessee Aquarium, Ruby Falls and, of course, Chattanooga Choo Choo. History enthusiasts will love the city's museums dedicated to Civil War, Native American and 20th-century history.

    Experience the great outdoors where options are plentiful including hiking Cloudland Canyon State Park, riding the Signal Mountain-Suck Creek loop, rafting the Ocoee or leaping off Lookout Mountain. The name "Chattanooga" comes from the Creek Indian word for "rock coming to a point." This refers to Lookout Mountain, one of the city's major attractions.

    • Top Tip 1

      Most things in Memphis involve Elvis - even if you're not a fan, a visit to Sun Studios, Graceland Mansion and Elvis' customised jets, Lisa Marie & Hound Dog II, are all worth a visit.

    • Top Tip 2

      Spend a night listening to Blues music at the wide variety of bars on Beale Street, Memphis.

    • Top Tip 3

      Learn how Jack Daniels is produced in Lynchburg, Tennessee, but he warned, there's no tasting as Lynchburg County is dry.

    • Top Tip 4

      Visit the Loveless Café for Nashville's famous biscuits (like our scones) and some great southern food. It's located at the northern terminus of the Natchez Trace Parkway which, in itself, is well worth a drive.
