Chattanooga is in Tennessee in the United States of America

Aug 27, 2007
Chattanooga is the fourth largest city in Tennessee in the United States of America. It is located in southeast Tennessee on Chickamauga and Nickajack Lake, which are both part of the Tennessee River, near the border of Georgia. The city lies at the transition between the ridge and valley portion of the Appalachian Mountains.

Some historians believe that Hernando de Soto visited the area of present day Chattanooga in 1540 1541.

During the early nineteenth centuries, the Cherokee were the most powerful Indian tribe in the tristate region of Tennessee. They forged close links with white pioneers, adopting white methods in schooling and agriculture, intermarrying and owning African slaves.

The city has received national recognition for the renaissance of its beautiful downtown and redevelopment of its riverfront.

Some of the attractions include the Tennessee Aquarium, Lookout Mountain, Civil War battlefield sites, the African American Museum, and the Appalachian Trail bring thousands of people to the area. Some of the events include the Riverbend Festival, Bessie Smith Strut, Fall Colour Cruise, the Creative Discovery Museum for children, and the Southern Writers Conference.

The Chattanooga Zoo features animals and information from all over the world, including Latin America, North America, Africa, and Asia. The Warner Park Ranch Exhibit invites visitors to directly interact with the ranch animals. Those are just a few of the many exhibits you will see during your journey through our wonderful zoo. Visit the Snow Leopards exhibit in the Himalayan Passage.

Today, although railroads have lost much of their economic importance, evidence of their influence remains. Even in towns where trains no longer run, buildings, tracks, train beds, and place names attest to the enduring legacy of Americas rail history.

Chattanooga is a headquarters for the Tennessee Valley Authority power system, which since the 1930s has been an important element in its economic growth.

The climate is moderate, so the outdoors can be experienced year round. Whether your interest is hiking, biking, walking, sky diving, rafting, or just strolling through a local park, it is a base for unique adventures throughout the region. While higher temperatures might at first be welcomed because they would extend the growing season, they would bring new plant and insect pests like the corn earworm that could ravage crops.

It has scenic beauty, moderate climate, proximity to a host of attractions and sites and proximity to major Interstate highways, Chattanooga is a city that should be on every travellers itinerary.
