If you are in the area, I highly recommend planning a stop at the Chattanooga Choo Choo.  This iconic car is actually now a hotel – you can spend the night in one of its cars!

Visit the iconic Chattanooga Choo Choo, made famous by the 1941 song of the same name.

Even if you aren’t staying the night, the Choo Choo is free to visit and take some pictures.  In addition to checking out the train, you can check out the Glenn Miller Gardens and visit Station Street for shopping and dining.
