Under $100 / North America

Chattanooga is located in southeastern Tennessee, not far from the border of Georgia. Situated at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, the city holds the perfect mix of outdoor activities and cultural offerings. See the city for less than $100 a day.


Start your day with breakfast at Rembrandt’s Coffee House. Located in the Bluff View Art District neighborhood, the coffee shop is known for its indulgent pastries. If a savory breakfast is more your speed, there are various egg and sandwich options, too. Spend about $10. Go for a stroll along the Tennessee Riverwalk. The 10-mile riverside path runs alongside the Tennessee River from downtown Chattanooga to the Chickamauga Dam. There are dozens of access points throughout the trail, so you can choose how long or short to make your walk.


Have lunch at Public House. The restaurant has a fine-dining feel in a relaxed atmosphere. The menu utilizes ingredients from local purveyors. Expect to see southern cuisine highlighted. Lunch entrées start around $9. Explore the Hunter Museum of American Art. The museum features a collection of modern American art, including pieces by local artists. General admission costs $20. Spend time exploring the many shops, boutiques and cafés of the Bluff Art District.
