Road schooling isn’t alway about school related activities . Sometimes life learning is with your eyes, nose and tummies. We love following our nose and tummy to kids friendly Chattanooga restaurants that taste good, are fun to eat at and are local favorites.
We started our week of in Chattanooga at Taco Mamacita who offer indoor and outdoor seating and amazing mouth-watering soft tacos. They had variety of unique combinations, healthy choices and my favorite, Gyro Taco. Dessert is right next door at Milk and Honey which has the most amazing gelato. The made from scratch daily and are packed with huge amounts of flavor. The girls said “yummy, yummy, yummy in my tummy and when can we go back?” We went three times because it was soooooo good.
Did you know moon pies are made in Chattanooga? They are a small family owned plant that make all the moon pies distributed throughout the USA. They no longer do tours but we did get visit the Moon Pie general store where we enjoyed an RC cola and every single Moon pie flavor made (50 cents each). Next door at the Rocket Fizz Soda Pop and Candy store you can buy over 100 kinds of soda. They offer everything from BBQ soda to chocolate pudding pie soda that are from all over the world. We of course got a huge bag of hard candy for the truck. Our last stop, after visiting the Harley Store, was Cupcake Kitchen with scrum-deli-umptious cupcakes that have huge mounds of silky frosting topping them. They have a vast amount of flavors anything from chocolate to fruit flavors, cookies, even cake truffles.
We actually did find some great places to visit here in Chattanooga but they were either closed or way to expensive (for our wallets). The first place we found was the Chattanooga Zoo at Warner Park but it was closed. We didn’t know if they were updating the park or just closed for the winter but with the Boonshoft Museum it would have been free to visit. You can’t visit Chattanooga with out seeing the Chattanooga Choo Choo. Although we did visit the park, we were not impressed at all. I don’t know if we even would give it one popcorn out of ten popcorns. You can sleep in one of the trains overnight (which I think is pricey) but there was no information on the train and no one to ask. We did get to play on the huge Checkers set and visit the long gift shop but really not worth the visit. Hint: Park in the back to free parking.
