Living in Chattanooga
Chattanooga, Tennessee welcomes you to live, work and play in the 4th largest city in the state, after Memphis, Nashville and Knoxville. Situated in Southern Tennessee near the border of Georgia, its scenic beauty, sound economy, and first-class attractions gleaned three national awards for outstanding "livability" and nationwide recognition for its striking downtown revitalization.
This metropolis became immortalized from the 1941 recording of "Chattanooga Choo Choo" by Glen Miller and his big-band orchestra. Many of its attractions share the famous song's namesake, such as the Chattanooga Choo Choo Hotel and the Chattanooga Choo Choo Diner. Along with these well-known attractions, visitors also enjoy the Chattanooga Zoo, Chattanooga Nature Center, Tennessee Aquarium, Lookout Mountain, Ruby Falls and Rock City.
Another important note regarding Chattanooga's iconic signature song is its legacy with trains. Tourists from all over the world come to see railroad exhibits at the Terminal Station, Union Station and the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum which showcase passenger rail trains that once climbed their way through the Smoky Mountains and along the Tennessee River.
Historic charm runs deep in neighborhoods such as the Bluff View Arts District. The community sits high atop stone cliffs tumbling into the river below. Residents known as "Cliff Dwellers" enjoy one-of-a-kind artisan boutiques, eateries and art galleries amidst beautiful gardens surrounded by breathtaking views of the Tennessee River.
Come explore a city with such captivating scenic beauty which inspires outdoor enthusiasts to venture to the mountain tops for hang-gliding and to its active riverfront for uncommon shopping, dining and entertainment in a setting that offers southern nuances in an urban paradise.
