Say Farewell to Pests in Scenic City
Named "Best in the U.S." by Lonely Planet, it's not hard to see why nearly 200,000 people choose to call Chattanooga home. With an elevation of 680 feet, Chattanooga sits between the Cumberland Plateau and Appalachian Mountains. Scenic City offers stunning views no matter which direction you turn.
Following decades of strife, the U.S. government took control of Ross' Landing and the area was incorporated in 1839. By 1850, railroads arrived and Chattanooga became a boomtown. The 1867 flood, which crested at 58 feet, led to redevelopment, as well as a reservoir system to prevent future flooding. The 20th and 21st centuries saw steady growth, and now Chattanooga is a city filled with quirk and personality.
Bustling with performing arts, Tivoli Theatre is home to the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera. Open since 1921, Tivoli is known as the "Jewel of the South" and seats more than 1,750 spectators. For plays and musicals, Chattanooga Theatre Centre is the place to be. Offering 15 annual programs, the Centre includes a Youth Theatre program as well.
Chattanooga also hosts many music festivals and events. The well-known Riverbend Festival takes over downtown for a long weekend each summer. For something smaller, Nightfall, which takes place weekly in Miller Plaza, celebrates local music. With events most weekends, Chattanooga honors everything from whiskey and barbecue, to bluegrass and literature.
Downtown is the heart of Chattanooga. Home to the Tennessee Aquarium, you can visit with penguins, tropical fish, river otters, and many others. For something more hands-on, take the kids to the Creative Discovery Museum. While downtown, look around for the street-level windows that resulted from the 1867 flood.
The city is a food lovers paradise. Locals are especially fond of Public House and The FEED Co Table & Tavern. Or for an afternoon treat, try a cone at Clumpies Ice Cream Co. If you head out of downtown, be sure to take a scenic drive across the Walnut Street Bridge, constructed in 1890. If you'd rather explore on foot, the Tennessee Riverwalk offers roughly 16 miles of trails and countless amazing views.
Coolidge Park is a beautiful place to relax with interactive play fountains, a historic carousel, and open spaces. Located in the Northshore District, the park is just steps away from local stores and restaurants.
You can easily spend an entire afternoon enjoying the Northshore. But with hot and humid summers and mild winters, Chattanooga is also a favorite spot for cockroaches, centipedes, and fleas.
