Chattanooga takes the business/fun relationship seriously

You may have heard of Chattanooga, TN, from the good ol’ song “Chattanooga Choo Choo” by Glenn Miller and his orchestra, or maybe, more recently, for having the fastest internet in the Western Hemisphere.  But did you know that in the last four decades Chattanooga has gone through a transformation – overhauling its environmental impacts, fueling their economy with industry leaders, and establishing a strong infrastructure – all the while revitalizing the downtown and making it easier to navigate?  Chattanooga is nestled between Appalachian mountains and the beautiful Tennessee river – so when we say Chattanooga is connected, we mean on every level.

What to See & Do
Lookout Mountain
Visible from nearly any spot in Chattanooga, Lookout Mountain offers visitors the unique opportunity to explore nature and history. Located deep within the mountain is Ruby Falls, a 145-foot underground waterfall, accessed by a cave filled with stunning geological formations. Above ground, there is Rock City, a 4,100-foot-long walking trail that takes you on a journey through lush gardens and provides breathtaking views of the Chattanooga Valley. Lookout Mountain is also part of Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park, which memorializes one of the most decisive battles of the Civil War.

 

Tennessee Aquarium
When Chattanoogans envisioned a renaissance for their city more than 2 decades ago, they looked no further than the Tennessee River. It was the inspiration for the opening of the world’s largest freshwater aquarium as well as a saltwater aquarium that was added later to reflect the river water’s eventual journey to the sea.

Located right on the banks of the river, the Tennessee Aquarium is Chattanooga’s most popular attraction, providing visitors the opportunity to go eye to eye with sharks, giant spider crabs, river otters and alligators through attractions like its Special Animal Encounter programs and the Tennessee Aquarium Backstage Pass.

Bluff View Art District
As the name indicates, the Bluff View Art District sits high above the Tennessee River. The neighborhood is filled with restaurants, an art gallery and an outdoor sculpture garden. It is also home to one of Chattanooga’s most popular coffee shops, Rembrandt’s. Adjacent to the Art District is the Hunter Museum of American Art and the historic Walnut Street Bridge, which is now a pedestrian-only bridge connecting Chattanooga’s downtown with the North Shore district.

Don’t Forget

The Chattanooga Area Convention Center is right on the Free ELECTRIC Shuttle line.
