Are your children fond of Thomas the Train? Do they want to go on a magical train ride just like Harry Potter on the Hogwarts Express? If they do, get all aboard Chattanooga Choo Choo.
Chattanooga is the railroad capital of the South and lots of train enthusiasts come here for a fun-filled vacation. Chattanooga has lots of exciting and fun places to go to just like its Incline Railway and Chattanooga Zoo. At the Incline Railway, tourists are told numerous facts about Chattanooga’s role in the Civil War. Midway, it would even stop to let another railway car pass.
The Chattanooga Zoo is appropriately railroad-themed. Families will hear the familiar locomotives’ whistles and onboard the Cougar Express, mountain lions can be safely viewed. Another main attraction in the zoo is the hand-crafted carousel as well as numerous animal sculptures. Jaguars, hyenas, red pandas, camels, baboons, and bobcats can be viewed in the Chattanooga Zoo. For those who want to pet animals, a barnyard petting zoo allows kids to interact with pot-bellied pigs, woolly sheep, and farm dogs.
There is plenty to do during the day aside from the above-mentioned– visit a model railroad museum, eat ice cream and pizza in a converted train car, ride horse-drawn carriages, and dollar garden trolley rides.
