Chattanooga Choo Choo and more..............

A visit to Chattanooga would not be complete without seeing the Chattanooga Choo Choo.  The Choo Choo is more than a train.  It's a museum of trains that are being used as a hotel and restaurant.  Yes, you too can sleep and eat in the historic Choo Choo.

These are the hotel and restaurant grounds.  See the dining and sleeping cars in the distance?

Here's Vicki at the Hunter Museum of American Art.  This horse is not made of driftwood.  It's metal.  Cool!!!

The 10-mile long Tennessee River trail includes this "Glass Bridge".  Norm was a bit uneasy crossing it having some fear of heights.  Funny, he's also a pilot and flying never bothered him.

The Fourth of July Fireworks will be shot off from a park just on the other side of the river.  We're told that Tide Hiker has a great viewing spot.  However, we were invited to join some new friends at that park where the Chattanooga Symphony will also be playing.  Do you think the "1812 Overture" is in our future?
