We visited the city of Chattanooga, TN for the day and we had a lovely experience, our first visit was the famous Lookout Mountain located along the Southern border of Tennessee. We were able to have breathtaking views of the natural beauty of the mountain. Other attractions included the Ruby Falls which is one of the world’s most fascinating cave waterfalls. Something that you should note is before visiting the site ensure that you check the schedule of their special events as there is always something special going on.
We also had rock climbing on our to-do list and contacted the Chattanooga best-equipped climbing facility. We first got the basic training from professional climbers before trying out. The climbers are very patient and happy to help you get to the next level, they offer classes for all experience levels. The climbing facility also offered aerobic classes, weight lifting, and yoga rooms.
Tennessee Aquarium is one of the top Chattanooga attractions, we were so delighted by the creatures found here. The Aquarium is above and underwater life in Tennessee that has the richest freshwater in the country. We got to see amazing and strange animals from remote parts of the earth, the exhibits are also realistic and show animals in their native habitats. Some of the animals thrive while others face the danger of extinction.

We got to see the largest indoor red Panda and the Snow Leopard in the exhibit. Seeing the Chimpanzees was also a lovely experience for us, we went to the Gome Forest that hosts the Chimpanzees. The forests are an indoor and outdoor facility with an interpretive centre known as Donovan Interpretive Center.
