Chattanooga is home to the Chattanooga Choo Choo train. The train is now actually a hotel and you can sleep in its carriages. Sadly we did not stay the night but we did go to see the train made famous by the song with the same name.

The Chattanooga Choo Choo’s first journey was in March 1880 from Cincinnati to Ohio. At this time in history pretty much all trains going through the south of north america came through Chattanooga, but this train was the first to provide non-stop service.
