October 26, 2015 – Monday – Chattanooga – No Travel

We found downtown Chattanooga to be an interesting and attractive metropolitan area. Even though we had a rainy day we rode the free electric bus to the home of the Chattanooga Choo Choo to visit. It is a hotel complex with railroad cars converted to hotel rooms in addition to an old high end hotel. This includes all of the normal hotel amenities like gift shops, ball rooms, restaurants, etc.

We decided to have lunch at Cold Stone.  Of course they only serve ice cream!

We walked to The Warehouse shopping center where Vicki window shopped and I waited in a sports bar. When she joined me we both had a very good lunch there. Then it was the electric bus to the main station, a transfer across the river to the north shore where we both got haircuts, went to Walgreens and a Publix.

One neat thing at the Chattanooga Aquarium was this sidewalk.  It had all of the words to the song Chattanooga Choo Choo and it was almost impossible to walk down the sidewalk without singing the song.

It didn't hurt that the words were written on the railroad ties and the whole thing was framed by the tracks.

We waited in the rain for the electric shuttle to come around and shlept our groceries back to the boat to relax for the rest of the afternoon. When dinner time arrived we went to a place called Cheeburger Cheeburger.
