…..In company with a Mr. Dick Joiner, an old citizen of Wilke’s Co.who lived across Fishing Creek from the Colley’s and who had moved to Atlanta, we spent one day in exploring the remarkable cave under the mountain opposite whose mouth the railroad track passes, and another day on top of the mountain enjoying the view.” A portion of Chattanooga’s railroad hub remains and is the site of the Chattanooga Choo-Choo Hotel, where one can see locomotives and cars from the 1800s at the original platforms, and dine in one of the cars, torches illuminating the platform out the window.
A Chattanooga trip can be combined with Atlanta (2 hours by bus), and include:
– Ruby Falls Cave(1,000 feet underground),
– the Tennessee Aquarium, the Incline Railway (world’s steepest railway),
– Lookout Mountain Battle Park,
– Chickamauga Battlefield,
– RockCityhiking trails,
– a riverboat ride on the Tennessee River.
Simply fill out the form on the right and we will send you a trip proposal within 24 hours.
