Family Road Trip Guide: Chattanooga, TN – Detroit Metro Parent, Sept 2022 by Courtney Fries

Swincar courtney fries

Fall is the perfect time to visit this southern beauty of a city, especially for outdoor lovers.

Chattanooga, in southeast Tennessee near Georgia, oozes with southern charm and offers ample outdoor attractions and family-friendly activities. Nicknamed “the Scenic City” for its location amidst the Appalachian Mountains and Tennessee River, Chattanooga features a walkable downtown with an educational aquarium, scenic views worthy of a fall colors visit and food my son still raves about.

Here’s a guide on how to make the most of your family road trip to Chattanooga.

Getting to Chattanooga, Tennessee

Chattanooga is about a nine-hour drive south of Detroit. Take I-75 south about 620 miles through Toledo, Cincinnati and Lexington to Chattanooga.

What Families Love About Chattanooga, Tennessee

 

Chattanooga offers a variety of family-friendly attractions to choose from. My crew’s favorite features were the super friendly people, outdoor activities and warmer weather. Locals all had time to ask, “How are you doing, darlin’?”

The natural beauty is abundant, leaving less room for kids to complain when you want to spend time outside. And the weather is warmer than Detroit with more sunny days, almost no snow and al fresco dining aplenty. […]

My family is big on outdoor adventure, so I was super pumped to learn about Adventure Sports Innovation, a Chattanooga company that pioneers outdoor adventure technology. It offers all sorts of thrilling land, water and virtual reality experiences, including walking in hover shoes, surfing on hydrofoil boards and hang gliding simulations. My son and I explored Lookout Mountain via Swincar eSpider which is a four-wheel electric vehicle with pendulum seating and spider-like arms. Even climbing up or down the rugged terrain we stayed upright, which was a wild sensation. The engine was so quiet I could barely tell the Swincar was on. We had a spectacular time laughing and joking as we tackled turns and swayed in the fresh air. […]

10 Outdoor Adventures Kids (and Adults) will go crazy for, The Expedition, Aug 2022 by Courtney Fries

Swincar Tande

It can be strangely difficult to convince children to spend time outside. Actually, not that strange given how absorbing some indoor activities are (cough, cough, *screens*, cough). SWINCAR e-Spider is an electric, all-terrain quadricycle

But when you offer outdoor adventures that are enticing enough, kids will often clamor to get out and get dirty. Here are 10 fun-filled activities that will encourage the whole family to get moving, get learning, and get some fresh air. We’ve got everything from mild to wild—whitewater rafting to swimming with manatees, riding horses on the beach, and more. […]

Drive a SWINCAR eSpider  – Chattanooga Tennesee

The SWINCAR e-Spider is an electric all-terrain quadricycle with spider-like arms and pendulum seating.

Ride and Slide in Sand Dunes – Silver Lake Sand Dunes, Michigan

Towering sand dunes and beachy shorelines beckon families to Silver Lake Sand Dunes, Michigan. Rent an off-road vehicle and hit the hills of the ORV park or leave the driving up to Mac Woods Dune Rides. Their 40-minute tours often include knee-slapping jokes and squealing like you’re on a rollercoaster. You can also rent a pontoon boat and sandboards from Wave Club Water Sports and savor the day sliding down a sand dune and swimming in refreshing lake waters. thinkdunes.comv
