Travel Around The World During Chattanooga Spring Break Safari

Thursday, February 14, 2013 - by Amanda Stravinsky

Spring break is just around the corner and Chattanooga’s Spring Break Safari is a great way to get out of the house, recharge and spend some quality family time.

Families can enter to win a Spring Break Safari Getaway. The grand prize includes a two-night stay at the downtown DoubleTree Hotel and four tickets to up to six of the Spring Break Safari adventures. The drawing will be held March 11.

During the Spring Break Safari, Chattanooga is transformed into a place where kids rule and adventure is everywhere. Kids can’t resist exploring the world with lots of hands-on activities designed just for them.

Activities include feeding and mingling with sharks and sea turtles; spelunking deep in a cavern; navigating the Tennessee River; exploring and uncovering hidden treasures; conducting aboard a train car; encountering chimpanzees, jaguars, reptiles and camels; exploring the age of dinosaurs; or whipping up sweets as a culinary creator.

New for 2013 is a Chattanooga Scavenger Hunt. The 13-site scavenger hunt includes exciting ways to learn more about each attraction and different parts of the city. Visitors will have to answer a series of clues and document the answers by taking pictures.
