Adventure Day 1 – Friday, April 24, 2009
Board your motorcoach and head to Chattanooga. After a stop for lunch and shopping at Hamilton Place Mall we will visit the world's largest freshwater aquarium, The Tennessee Aquarium, along with the ocean tank. Next door enjoy the butterfly garden on the roof as well as the penguins, jellyfish and seahorses. After checking into our hotel to freshen up and relax, we will head to the Southern Belle for a 2 1/2 hour cruise while we enjoy a wonderful buffet dinner.

Adventure Day 2 – Saturday April 25, 2009
After breakfast, we head for South Pittsburg for the National Cornbread Festival. This festival turns South Pittsburg into an open-air shoppers' mall where the streets are filled with live musical entertainment, juried arts and crafts and great food. This Southern cuisine festival honors cornbread with Cornbread Alley, a taster's delight, with recipes featuring cornmeal cooked in cast iron cookware where you can sample all the cornbread you want. Vendors will sell a variety of other foods. There is also a trolley car historic tour through the residential district and tours of Lodge Factory, the largest U.S. maker of cast iron cookware. After you've sampled all the different types of cornbread it's time to head for home.
