Chattanooga Choo Choo Gardens
The Chattanooga Choo Choo Gardens are part of the Chattanooga Choo Choo Hotel in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The property was once part of a busy railroad terminal. If you go, you can still see parts of the old terminal. It's basically a courtyard surrounded by train cars and formal gardens.
There's a water garden with 400 fish, an herb garden, a rose garden with 500 rose bushes, and a day lily collection featuring 184 varieties. There's also a lovely Victorian-style gazebo which serves as a setting for many weddings.
The gardens are open from dawn to dusk. Admission is free.
