Memorial Day weekend tends to run a full three days, leaving plenty of time for some memory-making adventures and activities. There’s plenty to do in the Chattanooga area, ranging from historical areas to getting in touch with nature. Here are some can’t-miss Memorial Day weekend activities in Chattanooga recommended by us at Capital Toyota!
Chattanooga in the American Civil Wa
Chattanooga served as a major railway hub throughout the mid-1800s. As a result, it was a primary target for both Union and Confederate forces. The area saw the deaths of thousands of soldiers on both sides. Today, artillery demonstrations roar throughout Point Park. The Chickamauga Battlefield serves to honor the victims of the battle.
A picnic at the park is a great way to spend Memorial Day weekend and there are few better places than at Coolidge Park. Cool fountains offer a way to sit back and relax in the summer heat. Those feeling more adventurous will find that jumping across the river and into the cascading waterfalls might be more their style.
