Once saddled with the reputation of being one of the country's dirtiest cities, Chattanooga now boasts a pedestrian-friendly downtown with a network of leafy waterfront trails and free electric shuttles.
Kick off your visit on the 5th (Wed): Head underground at Ruby Falls, then explore the wealth of natural beauty at Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park, and then hike along Tennessee Riverpark. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: see the interesting displays at Coker Museum, meet the residents at Tennessee Aquarium, get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, then head outdoors with High Point Climbing, and finally brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Chattanooga Whiskey Experimental Distillery.

A small resort town located in Georgia's "Historic High Country," Blue Ridge sits right on the national scenic trail that follows the Appalachian mountain range for over 3,300 km (2,100 mi).
Discover out-of-the-way places like Long Creek Falls and Dukes Creek Falls Trail. Take a break from the city and head to Ocoee River Basin Canopy Tour and High Shoals Falls Trail. Get out of town with these interesting Blue Ridge side-trips: Benton Falls Hike (in Benton), Jackrabbit Mountain Bike & Hiking Trails (in Hayesville) and Chattahoochee River (in Helen). There's lots more to do: let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, look for all kinds of wild species at Morganton Point Recreation Area, take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback, and admire the sheer force of Falls Branch Falls.
