A little Chattanooga Sight Seeing....

We did a little sight seeing in Chattanooga...starting right here at the Trav-l-park.  It seems this park was built right on top of a civil war battlefield...located on the campground is a monument marker to the 84th Indiana Infantry.  You can click on the above links for more information and history.
Here is the marker....pretty neat since I am originally from Indiana....born and raised
Here is a photo of our site....nice level pull through, full hook ups
 Photo of our is a popular place.  We didn't make a reservation and got lucky.  Got the last "big rig" friendly site.
Of course, we had to go downtown and check out the Chattanooga Choo Choo hotel.  You can read all about what it has to offer by clicking on the link.  Here is a plaque that explains the history of the train above
The hotel was interesting, but don't waste your money on the miniature train display....that was pretty sad
Next we decided to take the free trolley down to  the art district.
Got to walk across this awesome glass bridge.....don't look down!
And checked out some interesting sculptures on the river walk....
This was my absolute favorite.
We had a nice BBQ meal at a place called "Sticky Fingers" and ended our day with a little ice cream from "Clumpies".  They make all their flavors on site....fresh...and oh so good!!  All in all we found Chattanooga an interesting and diverse place.  Will have to stop by again when we have a little more time to explore and a little warmer weather would be can do a lot of walking in this city!
