Chattanooga is a city in Tennessee beside the Tennessee River. Historical museums, thriving art districts and a stunning aquarium are all a part of Chattanooga highlights. In addition, Chattanooga also has a variety of district parks and green spaces.
The Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport is the most suitable landing point for Chattanooga holidays. The airport has flights to U.S. destinations such as Atlanta, Charlotte and Detroit. As Chattanooga is beside the Tennessee River visitors can also arrive there via watercraft along the river. Chattanooga is five hours behind GMT and has a subtropical climate. As such, there is plenty of sunshine for much of the year, but September or October could be a better time for Chattanooga holidays when the city's surrounding hills explode with colourful autumn foliage.
