Finally had the chance to post our pictures from our trip in September (it's about time right?). I have been to Chattanooga numerous times, it's a funky eclectic town with local shops, museums, and plenty of architectual interest. Even though parking is always a pain, just like any other city, I would suggest parking in the city center and walking everywhere else.
Here are some of our must see places:
-Rembrandt's Coffee House
-Glass bridge (located near art museums)
-Hunter Museum of American Art (the colonial structure you see was originally a house, then they latter build the modern structure for the more abstract pieces - admission is free the first Sunday of every month between the hours of 12-5pm).
-Bluff View Art District - here you'll find plenty of bakeries, coffee shops, antique stores, and even a statue garden.
-Warehouse Row - Warehouses turned into upscale shops, even though we couldn't afford anything here, it was really neat to walk around and see the decor, be warned this place is so fancy you have to PAY to park there so either walk from downtown or leach off of someones meter.
-Lookout Mountain/Incline Railway
