I really enjoy getting down to Chattanooga because Chattanooga is a great town. I especially love getting to the area when the Lookouts are playing!
I was able to make it to AT & T Field at the end of the season this year and I was able to catch a game that could only occur in Tennessee as the Lookouts played the Smokies (another favorite team of mine).
Chattanooga is the perfect town for catching a minor league game. You are in a major city, with a lot to do, but you know that you are still in Tennessee. The town is hopin' but I never feel overwhelmed here. You get all of the big city sites but none of the big city attitude. Its almost like Chattanooga doesn't realize how big it is!
The park is an easy walk from any of the downtown attractions.
If you live within a 6 hour drive from this area, take a 3 or 4 day weekend and make it down, especially when the Lookouts are playing at home.
OR, take a few days and drive to the area when the Smokies are also playing at home! Catch the Smokies one night, and the Lookouts the next, AND you can spend time in Chattanooga, Gatlinburg, AND enjoy some time in the National Park!
