Since we both (Me and my Huz) are high on “travel-adrenaline” – Chattanooga was our next destination on the “travel-goals-checklist!” It took us 4 h 53 min to reach our destination from Memphis, Tennessee (Distance covered – 337.0 mi/542.3 km) via I-40 and I-24 E. With some exaggerated bends and picture-perfect scenic views – the drive gets better by the hour. Aptly called the “Scenic City,” the city has so much to offer and sight-see!
