Any Season, The Perfect Train Adventure Awaits

Trains aren’t just a mode of transportation; they’re a journey into the heart of experiences, especially in Chattanooga. Regardless of the season, riding the Missionary Ridge Local offers a unique perspective on the city’s heritage. While this weekend’s forecast hints at a few raindrops, inside the comfort of the train, it’s an entirely different world – one that’s dry, cozy, and perfectly poised to showcase the best of classic Chattanooga.

As you traverse the tracks, the train becomes a time machine, transporting you back to a simpler era. But the experience doesn’t stop with just the history. This weekend, the Holiday Lights Trains are also making their rounds. Imagine rolling through festive landscapes, twinkling lights reflecting off the windows, creating a magical atmosphere that’s sure to ignite the holiday spirit in everyone.

And what’s a train ride in the chilly season without a warm treat? At the Depot Deli, you can indulge in a cup of delicious hot chocolate made from Mrs. Claus’s own recipe. It’s the perfect accompaniment to the sights and sounds of your journey.
