Home of the famous Chattanooga Choo Choo, Chattanooga, TN is located in southeast Tennessee, on two lakes that form part of the Tennessee River. Teenagers and children will find lots to do in Chattanooga, which offers a wealth of family-oriented facilities. The city's Creative Discovery Museum offers a variety of hands-on exhibits to intrigue children from tots to 13. Families with older children and teenagers can spend an hour exploring the city in a land and water tour on an authentic WWII amphibious landing craft built specifically for the D-Day invasion. The tour is offered by the Chattanooga Ducks. Adults nostalgic for the Chattanooga Choo Choo, made famous by a 1941 song, can visit the restored terminal with their families to introduce their children to the song, take a train ride or ride the carousel. Train buffs of all ages will also enjoy taking a ride on a vintage train from the East Chattanooga Station of the Tennessee Valley Railroad, which offers a six-mile sightseeing tour that includes passage through a Civil War tunnel.1
