Here are five great things to do while in Chattanooga.

1. See Rock City. With its breathtaking view of seven states from the legendary Lover's Leap, beautiful gardens and waterfall, Rock City is an experience your whole family will enjoy.

2. Spend an afternoon exploring the Tennessee Aquarium. Two buildings are needed to house all of the wildlife on display at this aquarium. Along with freshwater and saltwater fish, the aquarium also features a butterfly sanctuary.

3. Visit Ruby Falls. Located deep inside Lookout Mountain, Ruby Falls as well as the many interesting rock formations you will see on your walk to the falls make for an interesting and memorable cave tour.

4. Ride the Incline Railway. Once the only way for people travel up and down Lookout Mountain, this railway is now generally only used as a tourist attraction. Touted as the steepest passenger railway in the world, a one way ride on the incline will take you about 45 minutes.
