Located in southeastern Tennessee on Chickamauga Lake and Nickajack Lake and at the junction of four major state highways, Chattanooga is nicknamed the "Scenic City," and known for its beautiful ridges, valleys, mountains and outdoor tourist attractions that have earned the city national recognition for the renaissance of its beautiful downtown and redevelopment of its riverfront.
According to Forbes magazine, Chattanooga is ranked 8th out of the Nation's 100 Largest Metro Areas for the best "Bang For Your Buck." The city's economy is a diversified and growing mix of manufacturing and service industries, and in 2011, the Volkswagen Group of America plans to open a $1 billion production facility plant in the city of Chattanooga that will serve as the group's North American manufacturing headquarters.
With access to the Smoky Mountains, parts of the Appalachian Mountains and the Tennessee River, tourists who love the outdoors can enjoy mountain climbing, hang-gliding, bass fishing and caving expeditions. Also for tourists and residents, the city and county have developed an extensive greenway system which includes five miles of constructed riverwalk through the historic art district and several parks. Other attractions include the Tennessee Aquarium, Lookout Mountain, Civil War battlefield sites, the African American Museum, Appalachian Trail, Riverbend Festival, and the Southern Writers Conference. Chattanooga is also the home of NCAA Division I-AA national football championships and hosts the national softball championships every year.
Chattanooga is a great place to do business, and to work and enjoy.
