Some fun things to do in Chattanooga include a visit to the Tennessee Aquarium, playing at Escape Games or taking a hot air balloon ride. A visit to the Creative Discovery Museum is also a good activity for families.
The Tennessee Aquarium features over 1,000 animals and a number of exhibits such as the Appalachian Cove Forest, the Mississippi Delta Country gallery and Discovery Hall. Group paddle boarding excursions to a bat cave also take place in the summer months.
Escape Games locks groups of players in a room for one hour and challenges them to escape before time runs out by solving problems and decoding messages. Each escape scenario has a theme, such as breaking out of prison or escaping from a mansion.
The Creative Discovery Museum is designed for kids and features interactive exhibitions such as unearthing dinosaur bones and face painting. There is also a large indoor playground and a small water activity area.
Fans of cars can visit the Coker Tire Museum to see classic and rare cars. The museum hosts two daily tours that show off an extensive collection of classic and exotic vehicles. On certain dates of the year, it also hosts car and motorcycle shows.
