Things To Do In Chattanooga

Chattanooga, the fourth-largest city in Tennessee, is ditching its industrial background and embracing a new era of bars, eateries, outdoor activities, and southern hospitality. A new generation of young locals and transplants bolsters the fun things to do in Chattanooga and make this vibrant mountain city worth exploring.

Explorers can paddle downriver from downtown Chattanooga to Suck Creek Road. Or, take the weekend off and hike up to 50 miles of the Appalachian Trail, including Roan Mountain, the Smokies, and Grayson Highlands. Kayak on the Tennessee River, paddle the whitewater portion of the Ocoee River, or take a tour of Ruby Falls underneath Lookout Mountain.
