• Chattanooga Choo-Choo - Chattanooga, Tennessee

      Roadtrip Attraction
      Almost everyone has heard the catchy old song 'Chattanooga Choo-Choo'. These days that name is attached to an elegant hotel that was originally the train station. And the name also appears on a wood-burning steam engine, vintage circa 1880, kept on display in the train yard behind the hotel. It was a train of this type (and perhaps this very train) that probably inspired the song. Beside it sits a New Orleans trolley car that still carries passengers downtown.

      If you go:
      Take time to admire the exquisite domed ceiling in the lobby. If you're staying overnight at the hotel, you have the option of staying in a lavishly restored Victorian train car.
