Chattanooga
October 2000

In the October issue of TRAVELER, we feature 22 superb weekend getaways. One of our selections is Chattanooga, Tennessee, which writer Maryellen Duckett describes as “a walker’s city, packed with enough museums, funky shops, and kid-friendly activities to keep everyone in the family busy.” We think you’ll be inspired to visit after reading Duckett’s tale. So here, we offer the very best links on traveling to Chattanooga.
