We’re located in Chattanooga, Tennessee, a family-friendly city boasting a variety of outdoor activities, vibrant downtown riverfront, and award-winning livability.


Chattanooga is the fourth largest city in the state of Tennessee, known as the Scenic City for the stunning views of mountains, rivers, and lakes easily accessible by residents and visitors alike. Chattanooga is found alongside the Tennessee River and is surrounded by mountains, making it a prime location for those who enjoy the convenience of city life but also want to take advantage of the numerous outdoor activities offered within minutes of downtown.  Chattanooga was twice named as the “Best Town Ever” by Outdoor Magazine. An abundance of local restaurants and coffee shops make for an attractive food scene, and entertainment is never in short supply as Chattanooga hosts many outdoor musical festivals throughout the year, including River Bend Music Festival, Three Sisters Bluegrass Festival, and the Moon River Music Festival.  Short weekend getaways are possible and convenient as Chattanooga is centrally located between Nashville, Knoxville, Birmingham, and Atlanta. Chattanooga is also known for a robust business innovation district, and boasts the fastest city-owned fiber internet service in the country.
