Travel Diaries: Chattanooga

Chattanooga was EVERYTHING that I needed. I haven't been to Tennessee since my childhood and the city is absolutely stunning. My mom and I arrived on Friday April 19th and the first thing we did was check in to the beautiful Edwin Hotel Autograph Collection and it's breathtaking definitely one of the BEST hotels I've been to in a while the customer service was exceptional. Listen THE most stylish hotel EVER it's filled with artwork from the local talent and its also conveniently located above the Tennessee River’s iconic Walnut Street Bridge, within walking distance from The Tennessee Aquarium and The Hunter Museum of American Art which I had the pleasure of checking out during my stay as well. The other thing I loved was the restaurant called The Whitebird located inside of the Hotel and we ate breakfast and Dinner there and it was uber delicious. My mom and I only stayed the weekend but I'm so happy to breakdown all the fun we had below.

Day One:
In Front of The Walnut Street Bridge
The Edwin Hotel
Warm Greeting from The Edwin Staff
Our Beautiful room
The artwork in the restroom
The gorgeous lobby

After check in we headed to Ruby Falls -- Ruby Falls is a 145 foot high underground waterfall located within Lookout Mountain. Discovered in 1928, Leo Lambert and a team of excavators found a breathtaking waterfall deep within Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Lambert named the falls after his wife, Ruby, and opened the Chattanooga attraction to the public in 1929.



After Ruby Falls we headed to Warehouse Row to do a little shopping and to eat. It was rainy and COLD so we had Ramen for dinner at Two Ten Jack!

Day Two started out with Breakfast at Whitebird -- My mom and I both had the delicious Chicken and Corn waffle with Jalapeno syrup and Chai Lattes. 

After breakfast we headed to the Hunter Museum of American Art  

Then we were onward to the Tennessee Aquarium and it was super amazing, my mom and I enjoyed an exclusive backstage tour where we were able to get a VIP experience we talked with the divers, an aquarist, we fed some of the fish, visited some of the penguins and was able to get up close and personal with the New Caledonian Giant Gecko.

New Caledonian Giant Gecko is the largest gecko species.

After the aquarium we ate dinner at the Whitebird and then ventured across the street to The Ice Cream Show for some hot chocolate since it was unseasonably cold on Saturday night
 and lastly before we departed we had coffee and bagels from the Provisions
