The City

Downtown Chattanooga

A revitalization effort began in the late 20th century-early 21st century along the waterfront with the restoration of the Walnut Street Bridge, the construction of the Tennessee Aquarium, the Riverwalk trail, and an influx of businesses and residential housing. Revitalization has continued to span throughout downtown, the Chattanooga MSA, and Hamilton County.

Chattanooga is advantageously positioned within 150 miles from Knoxville, TN; Nashville, TN; Atlanta, GA; Birmingham, AL; and Huntsville, AL. The city offers affordable, high-speed internet through EPB, an urban university, and public-private partnerships that work to support innovative startups and entrepreneurs — attributes which make the city an ideal location for new businesses and regional commuting.
