CHATTANOOGA, TN -- (Marketwired) -- 08/27/14 -- Cooler climates offer the perfect opportunity to explore the outdoors or a museum, and the TownePlace Suites Chattanooga Near Hamilton Place is inviting visitors to experience the city's best sights with two Chattanooga hotel packages.
The Lookout Mountain Trip Package includes two tickets to Rock City, Ruby Falls and the Incline Railway. Georgia's Lookout Mountain, 6 miles from downtown Chattanooga, offers three unique outdoor experiences.
At Rock City, located atop the mountain, a 4,100-foot walking trail takes visitors through an enchanted world of caves, lush gardens and soaring rock formations. Special events are held throughout the year, including October's Rocktoberfest, held every weekend throughout the month. Now in its 9th year, the celebration includes live German music, German food, specialty beer, polka lessons and costumed characters. From November 21st to January 3rd, the holidays take over with the Enchanted Garden of Lights, featuring more than 30 decorated scenes, nightly entertainment and special events including dinner with Santa.
Located more than 1,120 feet below the surface of Lookout Mountain is Ruby Falls, the nation's largest and deepest waterfall that's open to the public. Those looking for a scenic ride up the mountain can catch a ride on the Incline Railway. Considered a technical marvel, the passenger railway is one of the steepest in the world, reaching an incline of 72.7% at its most extreme.
Visitors who want a taste of the outdoors but prefer the coziness of an indoor setting can explore the magnificent creatures of the underwater world with the Tennessee Aquarium Package. Offering two adult admission tickets, the Chattanooga, TN hotel package allows visitors to get up-close to mammals, reptiles, fish, invertebrates, butterflies and other creatures. Divided between the River and Ocean journeys, the aquarium also features special exhibits, including River Otter Falls.
The two packages at this extended-stay Chattanooga, TN hotel are the perfect complement to visitors getting their kids settled into college at University of Tennessee Chattanooga or Chattanooga State, or sports fans attending one of the season's early football games at UTC. With spacious suites and amenities including free Wi-Fi and breakfast, guests will feel at home whether they're staying for the night or the entire week.
