1st Day: Ride Tennessee’s Rivers and Rails with Holiday Tours. Join us as we travel to Chattanooga, TN. Located along the beautiful Tennessee River, Chattanooga is one of America’s most breathtaking cities. Upon arrival we’ll check into our home for the next two nights and get ready for the fun to begin. Tonight, enjoy a beautiful, scenic cruise down the Tennessee River on Chattanooga’s Southern Belle Riverboat, along with a delicious one-time-through three-course buffet. The cruise will show off the beauty of both the river and the city, providing you with gorgeous views of Chattanooga that you can only experience from the Southern Belle, all while enjoying a fantastic meal!

This 3 1⁄2 hour trip will take you to the top of the famous “Hiwassee Loop” where the tracks cross over themselves as they corkscrew up the mountain near Farner, Tennessee.
