The city is a place that suits everyone, and depending on what you’re looking for, you can plan diverse activities.

If you’re into historic music, make sure to add the Georgia Theatre and 40 Watt Club to your to-see list.

And let’s not forget about the historic downtown with over 100 bars, shops, and restaurants. This side of the city is more alive on a Monday morning than most places on a Friday night.

You should also add to your to-do list a visit to Wuxtry Records, the oldest record store in Georgia. The place has been in business for over 40 years and stays strong, even if digital music took over the market.

Chattanooga, Tennessee

If you want to visit the most bizarre museums in the USA and eat a delicious meal after, Chattanooga, Tennessee, is the best vacation destination for you.

When planning the trip, make sure to book parking at Newark airport if you drive by car from home to the airport.

Your little ones will love spending time at the Tennessee Aquarium, which was built to mimic the flow of water from small streams to the ocean. Suppose your children love sea life, make sure to take them to the top of the towering building to see fish swimming in natural habitats.
