This unique 3 day Chattanooga itinerary allows your group to explore all the natural wonders of the area and enjoy outdoor recreation options, visit a historic campus in Nashville, and enjoy a full day at a local amusement park!
Raccoon Mountain Caverns and Campground
The Raccoon Mountain Caverns themselves have been rated the #1 'Thing to Do' in Chattanooga by TripAdvisor and is often called the #1 Wild Cave Adventure in the South.The emphasis here is on safety, ecology, and proper caving technique, so your group will be given proper training and safety gear beforehand. We suggest you take the beginner tour, which will last about 2 hours. Back at the campgrounds you can also pan for gemstones, relax by the campfire, visit the swinging bridge, hike the trails, swim, or play games such as basketball and cornhole. The site is only about a mile and a half away from the nearest store and gas station, and 15 minutes from both downtown Chattanooga and Lookout Mountain attractions.
Ruby Falls is undeniably one of the most stunning natural attractions in or around Chattanooga, this 145-foot waterfall located within a limestone cavern in Lookout Mountain. It is considered to be the nation's tallest and deepest underground waterfall open to the public. There are a few different tour options for Ruby Falls, the most popular being the 45-minute Classic Waterfall Tour. While here your group will also be able to see the views from the Lookout Mountain Tower, visit the onsite gift shop, grab a bite to eat at the Cavern Cafe, or for something a bit more adventurous, visit the onsite ZIPStream Aerial Adventure area. Here you will find one-of-a-kind thrills such as a 40-foot climbing tower and 700 total feet of zip lines.
Fisk University Campus Tour and Lunch
This historically black university was first founded in 1866, shortly after the commencement of the Civil War. While here your group is going to take a 1.5-hour tour of the 40-acre campus, with a brief information session by an admissions counselor, followed by the actual tour of the campus by a student ambassador. After your tour, you will have a chance to eat lunch on campus at Spence Dining Hall and visit the campus spirit store and bookstore. If interested, your group can get more specific with your visit and spend time checking out the School of Humanities and Behavioral Social Sciences (history and political science, behavioral science, arts and language) or the School of Natural Sciences, Mathematics, and Business (business administrations, math and computer sciences, life and physical science).
Dinner at Dave and Busters
Dave and Busters is a nationally popular food and gaming chain that provides a ‘sports-style setting’, American foods, and an interactive and video gaming arcade. Try the legendary burgers, delicious wings, juicy New York Strips, or if you’re really hungry, a super stack sandwich.
