Chattanooga With Littles
We love Chattanooga as a family; the walkability and endless activities, and good food keep us going back every year. From newlyweds to parents of three year olds Chattanooga keeps pulling us back in and we hope you'll find the magic there also!

As someone coming from Atlanta, this is my favorite aquarium. It drives direction and focus for little ones and has endless wonder.

Other tips! 

Chattanooga is incredibly walkable, it's nice to stay right in the middle of it all. Parking can be pricey and hard to find depending on the season, and it's typically easy to find a deal. 

Just a reminder that if you have toddlers, it can be warm and they will wear down quicker so pack water bottles and snacks and take plenty of breaks. They can also get overstimulated so something similar like a playground or hotel pool can be a good break. 

And if you can get away for a date night this is fun: 

Southern Belle Riverboat

My husband booked this for our 1 year anniversary and it was a major win!

My favorite place on earth is the Grand Canyon. I'm passionate about running through new spots and taking my kids to them. I have two three year olds but they are not twins. In the past year we've been to Vancouver, Seattle, Walt Disney World, London, and several spots in the southeastern U.S.
