Located in the southeast corner of the state, Chattanooga, TN has a lot to offer families looking for both education and entertainment. Teenagers, especially, are intrigued by the historical displays at the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park, which straddles the Tennessee-Georgia border. The oldest national military park in the U.S., it commemorates two 1863 Civil War battles that occurred on or near the site. Exhibits include a prewar farmhouse and Orchard Knob, Gen. Grant's headquarters during the Battle of Chattanooga.1 Children and teenagers alike enjoy visiting Raccoon Mountain Caverns, an underground cave featuring stunning rock formations. Raccoon Mountain is located just four miles west of Chattanooga. The Tennessee Aquarium is another popular family attraction.
