Chattanooga on Lonely Planet’s “Best In The U.S.”

We placed #3 on Lonely Planet’s “Best in The U.S.”

3. Chattanooga, Tennessee

Once little more than a pit stop between Atlanta and Nashville, the nature-centric ‘Noog has transformed itself into a bastion of elevated Southern living. Outdoor enthusiasts flock to Chattanooga for some of the best rock climbing in the country, myriad hiking and mountain biking trails and wild rides on the Ocoee River – one of America’s top spots for whitewater rafting.

Foodies, hopheads and techies aren’t far behind, either. Chattanooga’s revitalized downtown – centered on the $20-million makeover of the city’s signature train station into a multi-purpose nightlife and entertainment destination (including a world-class guitar museum) – is rife with pilgrimage-worthy New Southern cuisine, thirst-quenching breweries and techie-pleasing internet speeds. Meet the New South!
