History of Honeymoons

Centuries ago, when the Israelites captured a bride, he would spend the night or moon, with her in seclusion. They would drink mead called bride ale, which was made from fermented honey. Thus came the name Honeymoon.

According to tradition, the groom should plan the honeymoon, since the bride has done the majority of the planning for the wedding. Where to go should definitely be a joint decision, but the groom should handle all of the arrangements.

(Of course, this is only according to tradition. Today's couple's will probably share in the planning their honeymoon.)

Why Take a Honeymoon?

The best reason for a honeymoon is for the rest and relaxation. The rigors of wedding planning are one of the most stressful events in your life. The peace of mind that you will enjoy is worth every penny. A honeymoon is an important part of your wedding. Even if your are living together, you will need to rest and relax after all the planning that has gone into your wedding day.

Do not treat your honeymoon like a vacation; it is a time unlike any other. You are starting life as husband and wife, not merely living together. This is your time to bond, set out in a new direction, and renew your romance.

“Happiness consists of living each day as if it were the first day of your honeymoon and the last day of your vacation” —Anonymous


Chattanooga Choo Choo Victorian Train Cars

accommo_trains_photoSleep aboard an authentic train car! Traveling across the nation by private railroad car was the height of luxury in the early 1900's. The railroading excitement of a bygone era is still present onboard one of our 48 Victorian train cars at the Chattanooga Choo Choo complex. Where else can you overnight in a beautifully restored Victorian train car? Only the very rich could afford a private car in 1900, but today the train cars are tastefully decorated. Although you may be reminded of a past era while staying aboard our rail cars, you will have all of today's conveniences. Each car includes a queen size bed, and some cars also have a daybed with a pull out trundle bed. The only thing missing from your night in a Victorian Train Car is the "clickety-clack" of the rails!
