Chattanooga Choo Choo
Tennessee, Deep South
A stay at Chattanooga Choo Choo gives the ultimate insight into America’s locomotive heartland. Just a year after savvy locals saved their old train station from demolition in 1973, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. But even they couldn’t have foreseen the incredible revamp to follow. Today, the historic terminal building and resident Victorian train carriages-turned-guestrooms are paired with glorious gardens and fresh new attractions. With 2 music venues and a comedy club attracting big-name acts; indoor and outdoor pools; and a collection of eateries including a 50s styled pizza car, gorgeous garden restaurant, oyster bar, Victorian lounge which transports you to the railroad glory days of the 1880s, and buzzing comedy club bar serving American-inspired comfort food, you might not find reason to use their complimentary downtown shuttle.
