Day 2

AUTUMN “SUMMERVILLE STEAM SPECIAL” • CHATTANOOGA CHOO CHOO • SOUTHERN BELLE RIVERBOAT:

Up & at ‘em early this morning! Today we hop aboard the Summerville Steam Special and experience a travel adventure straight from the “Golden Age of American Railroading.” The vintage train follows a historic route from Grand Junction Station in Chattanooga to Summerville, Georgia; crossing the state line in Rossville, traveling past Chickamauga- Chattanooga National Military Park and through Chickamauga, into Summerville. Lunch is included on the train. We have time to visit the Chattanooga Choo Choo train, once owned and operated by the Southern Railway, and now part of a 30-acre resort complex, located in downtown Chattanooga. This evening we enjoy a delightful dinner cruise on the Southern Belle Riverboat! We cruise on the scenic Tennessee River while enjoying a delicious dinner. (L, D)
Day 3

RUBY FALLS • HOME:

Today we visit one of Chattanooga’s famous attractions, Ruby Falls, a 145 foot high waterfall. The Falls are located at the end of the main passage of Ruby Falls Cave, in a large vertical shaft. The stream, 1120 feet underground, is fed both by rainwater and natural springs. It collects in a pool in the cave floor and continues through the mountain until finally joining the Tennessee River at the base of Lookout Mountain. We’ve learned quite a bit about Chattanooga this weekend. Now we travel home with the memory of the delightful time we’ve had.
