I second the walk across the walnut street bridge over to coolage park, there is a carousel there the kids can ride on.
Also there is the river gorge explorer if you want to go on a bad *ss boat ride. I would stay downtown that way there are alot of things within walking distance. (Hilton Garden is nice). I would also look into the chattanooga nature center, I dont know if they still have the red wolfs there or not. March is a gread time to come as long as the weathers good. I hope you enjoy it as to me Chattanooga is a great city with lots to do and see.

Don't go south of Hwy 27 or I-24 after dark.

My family of 4 (kids are 5 and 2) are planning on going to Chattanooga for roughly one week in March. I'd love recommendations on places to stay and eat.

As far as activities, we're planning on hitting the aquarium, choo choo, Lookout Mtn, and Children's Museum. What else should we plan on doing (with the understanding that the kids will be with us 100% of the time with no childcare)?

Thanks!

Eat at Famous Dave's BBQ. That place is pretty dang good and the inside is pretty neat as well. Dedicated to outdoorsmen. It's in the middle of theajor shopping area, Hamilton Place right off of I-24.

Aquarium, Rock City, Incline, Ruby Falls & Coolidge Park. I never cared for the Fiscovery Muesum.

I'll second Champy's on MLK unless you don't want chicken cause that's all they've got. I never knew that there could be so much meat on a drum stick.

Also try CheBurgerCheBurger, good burgers and awesome milkshakes and Sticky Fingers, my favorite dry rub ribs. Both are near the aquarium.

They got way more than just chicken. They have crawfish, and tamales, which I never had until I went there. They are pretty good.

If you'll be going near Athens on the way home, you could take them to the Mayfield's Dairy Farm for a tour. Best ice cream on the planet.

This is a fact! Buck J is an awesome fella to meet, and has a dandy cottage/cabin on a pretty piece of creek. Family would have as much fun there as anywhere, and it's only short drive to end up downtown for the day.
