In 1839, the small hamlet of Ross’s Landing incorporated as Chattanooga, a city nestled along the winding Tennessee River. While its location on the waterway and train tracks helped it grow in importance, it was really the Civil War that pushed Chattanooga to the forefront. The Battle of Chickamauga was fought nearby and one can make the drive to Lookout Mountain to take in this slice of American history.

Today Chattanooga has reinvented itself (some say “found”) as an outdoor haven for sportspeople of all persuasions. The gently hilly roads that lope through forests and along the river are perfect for mountain biking, running or even a scenic drive. In true form of southern hospitality, the locals are friendly, the food delicious and the weather usually cooperates with an adventure-packed day.
Historic, scenic and brimming over with southern hospitality–Chattanooga is a must-see for anyone travelling through the South.
