moving

by calm741

Hi, I am moving to the Chattanooga, Tennessee, area but don't really want to live RIGHT in the city. Does anyone know of a safe and nice area/neighborhood near there that would be better for me and my husband? I have seen town names like Ooltewah, Hixson, and Collegedale, but it seems impossible to find out where would be safe and nice to move to. I appreciate any info!

RE: moving

by stevepart

All three areas are nice & safe. Property taxes are significantly different depending on city vs. county. You may also want to look at North Georgia - Ringgold, Fort Olgethorpe.

RE: moving

All these areas are nice, as are East Brainerd, North Chattanooga, Missionary Ridge, and the mountains. No don't consider north georgia, they have a state income tax and the schools are not really better than those in Hamilton County. If I were moving here for the first time I would consider what I want to be closest to, such as where I work. This would give you an idea of which part of town would be the best. Many people who work downtown but live way out in Collegedale and Ooltewah have to drive over an hour to work and back every day, which is definitely not something I would want to do. Others want to live near the river or lake, on a mountain, near downtown but not in it, or near the mall. It all depends on what you want to be close to, because there are many different areas with nice, safe neighborhoods across the county.

Travel Tips for Chattanooga

Chattanooga Tip

by kahiwa

Well, there was a 'waitress' at the restaurant we frequented who was quite pretty but had a very low voice. (Can you say 'transvestite'?) He/she made the guys in our group a bit uneasy, but the women had fun. The 'waitress' would call the guys 'sweetie', and one short guy in our group was dubbed 'baby'. Their nicknames will stick for quite a while.

Monkey Trial

by anderschwan

Yes, one of this area's claim to historical fame is located a short way from Chattanooga in Dayton, Tennessee. Here you can visit the Rhea County Courthouse, where the trial actually took place. The courthouse has a small museum in the basement displaying memorabilia. The Courthouse and Museum are open for visitors Monday-Friday from 8AM to 4:30 PM, except holidays.

A lot of folks in the area still don't believe in evolution. Things evolve a little more slowly here in the buckle of the Bible Belt.

Chattanooga Choo-Choo

by V_Minx

In the mid-1900s there was a rather catchy tune written about the Chattanooga Choo-Choo and it seemed to endear the train and the city in the hearts of many people. Although the song talks about the train running all over the USA, a little known fact that I learned is that it only traveled between Cincinnati, OH and Chattanooga, TN.

As a major railroad hub, Chattanooga had an impressive train terminal and volume of tracks. Now, the terminal still stands and is converted into part of a hotel and restaurant. Much of the track has been removed, but some rails still exist. On one section sits the Chattanooga Choo-Choo train for visitors to climb on and explore. The sleeping and dining cars attached to the train are still being used as hotel rooms and dining areas, but the train never moves.

If you do want to ride the rails, an electric trolley sits right beside the train and a most entertaining conductor will give you a 30 minute ride, tour and history lesson on the train, hotel, city and general region for a minimal fee. I recommend you take the time to enjoy this inexpensive adventure.

While the train passenger shelters are still standing, the tracks have been pulled up and gardens with gazebos, fountains, ponds and a variety of flowers now brighten the area. It is all free to explore at your leisure.

For the train aficionados, a model train museum lies in some adjoining buildings along with some souvenir shops.

Most people would be happy spending an hour or two here.

Point Park - Civil war site on Lookout Mountain

by MatthewMetcalfe

Point Park is the location of the "Battle in the Clouds". During the Civil War, Confederate and Union Soldiers battled on top of Lookout Mountain for Control of Chattanooga.

The Park consists of a series of trails that are great for walking as well as a visitior center and outstanding views of Chattanooga from atop Lookout Mountain.

There is a small admission fee that I believe was $2.00 when I was there last.

Rock City is not Hard-to Find

by BruceDunning

At the peak of the mountain is this visitor spot. It was first identified by two missionaries in early 1800's as a citadel of rocks. Huge boulders are prevalent. The Carter family developed the estate in early 1930's. The cost is $15.95, or $30,00 if combined with Ruby Falls, or three way for $43.00 by using Incline railway. Signs along the highways go for hundreds of miles in all directions. They even use barn roofs for signage. An added feature is there is a Starbuck's at the top in the old Cornerstone building, a red limestone structure from the early 1900's.
Garnet Carter and wife Frieda started the business to tour the rock pathway in 1932, and it was then called Fairyland. That concept was to attract children and the imagination of the architect was to have said to run "wild". Before that, people had come to see the large granite rocks and walked the natural paths around those. It is still operated by a relative of Carter. There are 500,00 annual visitors, so off season may be best-not summer days. You really can see 7 seven-states from this vantage point, the farthest being 120 miles distant.
