Sit back, and relax as trolley-style railcars slowly carry you up historic Lookout Mountain, and Chattanooga's surrounding peaks and valleys come alive through the clouds. The railway achieves an incline of 72.7% at one point along the way, making The Incline Railway one of the steepest railways in the world, and it is also designated as a National Historic Site and a National Historic Mechanical Engineering Landmark. Following our train ride, we continue on to downtown Chattanooga, where we will spend the next two nights at the Chattanooga Choo Choo Hotel. As one of the top Tennessee resorts, the Chattanooga Choo Choo Historic Hotel was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974, is considered one of the city's first historic preservation projects.
