What to do this weekend in Chatanooga

We'll be arriving in Chattanooga this Friday night and will have three full days to spend in the area. We would appreciate any itinerary advise! We want to explore the city by foot - what routes do you recommend? We enjoy the out of doors, hiking and kayaking, the arts, good food, and music. Thank you for your help.

You can also visit the Tennessee Aquarium, ride the Chattanooga Ducks, walk the Tenn. Riverwalk and Bluffview Arts District.

There is a beautiful long walk along the Riverwalk, for several miles in both directions from downtown. Chattanooga Ghost Tours are fun along with the Chattanooga Railroad Museum.

Visit Rock City on Lookout Mountain.

It's going to start pouring rain on Saturday afternoon/evening, so get in your outdoor activities before that; potential hurricane coming right through the area.

Don’t count out the day yet. The storm is down near Mexico. It can slow up, it can change directions. If it’s cloudy, go forth and have a good time. Save the Aquarium for Sunday!

Yes it is a wonderful event! This will be the first year I have missed in a while but the crappie are calling at Dale Hollow lake- assuming the weather cooperates it sounds like you have picked the perfect weekend to experience Chattanooga!!

now we're on the fence.... hate to drive all the way there and be rained out. What to do?

My husband tells me stories of fishing at Dale Hollow with his father a long time ago! Good luck!

20% chance Saturday evening- Sunday looks like it will definitely rain some- great day for the aquarium or a visit to the hunter museum! But we learned long ago that they don't know much about weather around here- the mountains seem to deflect a lot of the storms? How cool that your husband fished at Dale Hollow - it can be epic- but regardless- a day on the water beats a day in the office- catching fish is a bonus!
