Chattanooga
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.
Escape the urban bustle at Little River Canyon National Preserve and Fall Creek Falls. Step off the beaten path and head to Rock City Gardens and Ocoee HorseRide. Step out of Chattanooga with an excursion to Cloudland Canyon State Park in Rising Fawn--about 40 minutes away. There's lots more to do: cruise along Cherohala Skyway, see what you can catch with a fishing tour, take in the views from Walnut Street Bridge, and explore the striking landscape of Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park.
