There are a lot of restaurants, festivals and events throughout the year. Has all the amenities of a larger city but with out all the hassles.

Downtown by the river is always a happening place.

I was in Chattanooga for the eclipse last year and it was a really great experience. We watched the eclipse by the side of the river and it was a once in a lifetime experience.

The Mellow Mushroom has amazing pizza and calzones. The aquarium is wonderful. My favorite is the River Walk. We sat on the steps next to the river at night under a full moon, with a cool fall breeze in the air. Incredible.

I love Chattanooga Tennessee. It's such a amazing City. There's so much to do and great places to eat. We love the Tennessee Aquarium. The city has a small-town feel. We enjoyed riding the transportation system in downtown. One of my favorite places to eat was sticky fingers barbecue. Unbelievably good food. When we go to Chattanooga I we stay in the Sheridan Hotel. It is a great place to stay.

Chattanooga is just a beautiful city. It is so close to the mountains. Awesome river bear by. A lot of attractions in the city. Lookout mountain is not too far off. Rock city is near by. Lots of hiking and camping nearby. It's a great place to visit.

Chattanooga is a big town / small city, but it is growing. The natural surroundings are beautiful, with the Tennessee River flowing right through town and the surrounding hills and mountains. Everyone there seems friendly and there are plenty of things to do. There are many great restaurants and coffee shops. There are live music venues and bars for nightlife. The riverfront area is great for walking or biking outdoors. The aquarium is a very enjoyable attraction and it is affordable and rarely too crowded. The Chattanooga Choo Choo is a neat experience where you can actually book a room to stay in an old railroad sleeping car. Chattanooga is also an easy car trip from several cities like Nashville, Knoxville, Huntsville, and Atlanta.

The Tennessee Aquarium. Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum. Riverboat rides. Antique shopping. Good restaurants. Lookout Mountain. Ruby Falls.
