Traditions bring up fond memories of time spent with family and friends. They remind us that we need to a break from the hectic schedules and get together to really enjoy those little things in life such as eating roasted turkey (or maybe tofurkey!) and dressing; baking pumpkin pie; reading The Night Before Christmas; giving & receiving presents; baking cookies just for Santa and the elves, decorating the tree with that ornament made in first grade or dusting off the box that holds the magical Christmas village.

It’s important to spend that quality time together creating memories. This year, make some new family traditions by exploring some of Chattanooga’s top holiday experiences.

Make planning easier by booking a special holiday hotel package that includes accommodations and attraction tickets, and maybe even an elf tuck-in service!
