On Sunday morning we woke up, hopped in the car, and two hours later arrived in Chattanooga. I've lived in Tennessee for 4 years and I've never had a chance to visit the city. I've always wanted to go and the long weekend gave us the perfect opportunity. The major reason for our trip was to visit the Tennessee Aquarium. I was skeptical on what type of sea life a land locked state would have- but I was more than pleasantly surprised- I was totally blown away! The aquarium is laid out nicely, keeping you moving on a path with very few bottlenecks. Plus, they had some amazing creatures (including Otters, my favorite).
Please enjoy this very photo-heavy post!

|They have real penguins, but its really hard to pose with those guys.|

|Coral Reef + SHARK!|
|I volunteered and got to put a snake in the bag!|
