Dynamo of Dixie

Once saddled with the reputation of being one of the country's dirtiest cities, Chattanooga now boasts a pedestrian-friendly downtown with a network of leafy waterfront trails and free electric shuttles. Recognized for the renaissance of its long-dilapidated central area (which contains the world's longest pedestrian bridge), the town draws not only visitors from around the world looking for a relaxed holiday, but also young entrepreneurs eager to establish homes and businesses right on the banks of the Tennessee River. Most of Chattanooga's major attractions lie within easy walking distance of one another, though you can also get to them using the convenient bike share system, which offers 300 rental bikes at 30 locations spread throughout the city. Use our United States tour planner to plan your trip to Chattanooga and other destinations in United States.

Where to stay

Centrally located Chattanooga hotels offer comfortable rooms just a walk from the city's best shops, restaurants, and museums. Staying in the middle of everything can cost a bundle, so if you're traveling on a budget or simply prefer a bed and breakfast atmosphere, consider staying farther away from the central part of townwhile on holiday. Most budget-friendly inns located along the free electric shuttle route servicing the downtown area offer all the comforts of home at the fraction of the price charged by the big chains.
