Chattanooga TN - One of America's Best Places to Live, Work and Play

Jun 28

The city of Chattanooga TN sits nestled in the river valley between two mountain ranges and is surrounded by the beauty of pristine nature. This charming southeast Tennessee town has made a name for itself as one of America's best places to live, work and play. With a burgeoning tech sector ("Gig City" is the first in the nation with gigabit Internet speeds), outdoor adventure, great state parks, dazzling museums and one of the world's top educational aquariums, Chattanooga has become a magnet for those seeking a high quality of life.

In the early 1960s, when CBS newsman Walter Cronkite named it the "Dynamo of Dixie," the city was a bustling, midsize industrial powerhouse with iron foundries and manufacturing plants. But pollution was a major problem and the town was losing population to urban centers with cleaner air.

Local leaders decided to take action, and they launched a consensus-driven process of civic renewal that is still underway. The result was a remarkable transformation. Pollution was cut, the economy rebounded and the city began to attract retirees and families with children.

Today, the Chattanooga region ranks highly on the nice-place-to-live and -visit meter all year round. Its enticing mix of outdoor activities, vibrant arts and culture, future-focused schools and affordable housing options make it a great place to start or grow a family. And the pristine environment, easy access to parks, mountains and the Tennessee River makes it an ideal place for recreation of every kind.

People come to Chattanooga for the Gig City, the rock climbing and hiking trails, one of the most impressive science museums in the country, one of the finest aquariums in the world, a spectacular riverwalk and so much more. But it's the friendly people, the down-home hospitality and the unmistakable Southern charm that really make this a special place to be.

The Chattanooga area offers plenty of fun ways to experience the outdoors including rock climbing, white-water rafting and hiking along miles of scenic trails. Families can take a spin on the Coolidge antique carousel or head over to the Tennessee Aquarium for an amazing wildlife adventure. And when it's time for a hearty meal, you can chow down on delicious Tennessee originals like fried chicken from Party Fowl or try the tasty fried green tomatoes at The Bitter Alibi.

When it comes to food, Chattanooga has it all. The city is full of savory and sweet delights from renowned restaurants to pubs that serve up cold beers and good conversation. You'll also find a huge selection of kid-friendly eateries and a wide variety of bars that are perfect for hanging out with friends.
