Chattanooga has trains to ride. Day trips, dinner trips and trips for kids at Christmas with Santa showing up. When you ride it takes you back to an earlier time. The seats are red and even some of the engines are as well. What a wonderful family day we had.
Smith Perry Berry sunflower farm is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon with family. If you don’t loose them between the huge sunflower stalks, that is! The sunflowers I picked lasted over two weeks too. Now I need to look up recipes using sunflower seeds.
I can’t wait until fall when the fields are full of pumpkins.
The setting is perfect for these restaurants and shops. They were built right beside the Little Pigeon River and we can hear the water running over the tops of big rocks there. There are trees and birds all over the property. The big country store has anything you can imagine with apples on it or in it and even apples themselves to buy. A new fun store has hard cider with many different flavors to try. After eating your meal you can find the candy and ice cream stores very satisfying too. Have fun and make it an evening not just a meal.
I enjoyed our afternoon in Chestnut Hill eating country food, shopping the General Store and eating pinto bean pie that tasted like pecan pie. It’s so easy to make. You should try it.
