Looking for a last-minute road trip to take over your holiday break? Chattanooga is an easy drive from surrounding states. The New York Times names the city one of the “Top 45 Places To Go in 2012,” and we say it’s going to remain a top tourist destination in 2013.

In addition to checking out classic favorites like nearby Rock City the Tennessee Aquarium, put this neighborhood on your radar: The North Shore.

Located just across the Tennessee River from downtown, the North Shore neighborhood makes for a perfect side trip. It’s easy to find—just stroll across the Walnut Street Bridge to Frazier Avenue and get ready to be charmed by this up-and-coming shopping and dining haven. Some of our top picks:
