Get Out and Explore Chattanooga's Naturehood This Fall
Fall in Chattanooga’s Naturehood – the urban core surrounded by easily accessible mountains, rivers, and scenic beauty – is filled with spectacular color displays, live music and entertainment, Oktoberfest celebrations, neighborhoods bursting with outdoor festivals and events, and even some thrilling Halloween experiences.
Chattanooga is one of the South’s top travel destinations according to recent listings in the“52 Places to Go” in the world in 2018 by the New York Times, “14 Idyllic Fall Family Vacations” in 2019 in the United States by TripAdvisor, and “20 Best Mountain Towns in America” by Men’s Journal. The Scenic City is also the first city voted twice as “Best Town Ever” in Outside magazine.
Park the car and easily navigate the compact, safe, and vibrant Downtown District by foot, free electric shuttle, or the Bike Share System. Many fall events take place downtown, making everything easily accessible. Other popular events and attractions, like the fun on Lookout Mountain, are less than 15 minutes from downtown.
Chattanooga is experienced best when you spend a few days and really take time to enjoy your visit. Many of the accommodations provide special fall, family, or romantic packages that will save you money.
