The New York Times has once again visited Chattanooga, this time offering an overview of how you might spend 36 hours in the city. 

The article, published Thursday, was written Colleen Creamer for the recurring series.

In it, Creamer visits tourist attractions like the Hunter Museum of American Art, the Bluff View Art District, Ruby Falls, Tennessee Aquarium and Songbirds Guitar Museum. She dined at Uncle Larry’s, The Bluegrass Grill, Tony’s Pasta Shop & Trattoria and drank cocktails at the Boathouse and Flying Squirrel.


She slept at The Dwell Hotel and The DoubleTree by Hilton.

From her introduction:

Nestled against the Tennessee River in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Chattanooga, Tenn., has transformed itself in recent decades from an unassuming town to a hyper clean, high-tech (“Gig City” was the first in the United States to offer gigabit internet speeds), outdoorsy family destination that offers hiking trails, rock climbing, museums, one of the finest educational aquariums in the world, and innumerable food and entertainment venues.

In Feb., The New York Times’ travel writer Jada Yuan visited Chattanooga as a part of her ongoing “52 Places Traveler” series.
