a weekend in chattanooga

June 12, 2013


In some ways, traveling to Tennessee feels like going home. After spending four years there during college, we have some incredible memories and several best friends who still live in the area (and, thankfully, don’t mind if we crash their homes for a weekend).

For this visit, we stayed with our friends in Chattanooga so we spent most of our time there. When we lived in southeast Tennessee over seven years ago, Chattanooga was slowly trying to clean up its act – it had a couple of cool restaurants, a fun ice cream shop we all loved, and a fun walking bridge to take pictures on.

Since then, the city has taken big steps forward in its re-branding with strong efforts to emphasize its artistic and entrepreneurial spirit. Did you know Chattanooga was the first U.S. city to design its own typeface? It was fun to catch of glimpse of the city’s successful efforts.

Here are links to some of the places we visited:

WAREHOUSE ROW: artisanal goods and boutique brands

PUBLIC HOUSE: comfort food done right

FOOD WORKS: dining in an old knitting mill


For my Tennessee friends – what are your favorite spots in Chattanooga? What would you recommend for our next visit? I’d love to hear!

    You have to see the Aquarium, Ruby Falls, and Rock City! We used to drive up from Atlanta all the time!
