Chattanooga: Come for the aquarium, stay for the swimming holes


A trip up Interstate 75 to Chattanooga can be fun for the whole family.

You likely already know about Lookout Mountain, Ruby Falls and the Tennessee Aquarium, but Chattanooga has a few hidden gems less than half an hour from downtown.

The North Chick Blue Hole in Soddy Daisy, Tennessee, is a great place for swimming, sunbathing and taking envy-inducing photos for your Instagram.“North Chickamauga Creek comes tumbling down the side of Walden’s Ridge, carving out a steep gorge between Signal and Mowbray mountains, and creating a series of deep, welcoming pools along the way,” Visit Chattanooga writes on its website.
