Chattanooga Photo Tour

Recommended Posts

I've promised a photo tour of Chattanooga and it's about time I delivered. So I went out today and took quite a few pictures of my hometown. As I was taking these pictures, all I could think of was how lucky I am to live in such a great town. I hope everyone enjoys. There will be many more pictures to follow later.

Here's a few more. Let's see if they are any bigger. If not, I'll try to correct the pictures at the host site.

Here's some pictures from the Art District located on a bluff overlooking the Tennessee River and within walking distance of the Aquarium and downtown.

Awesome pics Hanster!!!

I so need to go to Chattanooga! Its been...lets see......10-11 years I guess since I was there. Yikes. I've been to East Tennesse many times since then, just not Chattanooga, so I need to do something about that.

Hopefully you will figure out the issue with sizing with your host site. If not check your inbox, there should be a message from me on a different host site, the one I told you about in Nashville at the meet.

Sweet pics...

If you get a chance, see if you can get a shot of the East Gate Town Center with its renovated front... and also see if you can get a shot or two of the urban sprawl known as Hamilton Place...

Chattanooga has done a wonderful job of taking the old and renovating it. No need to tear it down and rebuild when you can just freshen it up!

I'll try to get those for you. As for now here's another round of pictures I took of Chattanooga on Saturday. There's no telling if these will be big or small, but here goes.

Chattanooga has really changed a lot since I lived there in the late 80's early 90's. I still love to go down for the day. I never can get enough of the city. I always go to the Pickle Barrel and get a Reuben and a bowl of chili.

Great Pics. Brings back a lot of memories.

Did you ever figure out your sizing issue? If so I would love to see these in a larger format! :D

Yes I did! I'm posting many of these in my East Tennessee Picture of the Day thread. Over time you will see all of them plus some more.

I've seen the Museum Bluffs condos and they cast an imposing profile. I understand that they're about to build a companion project to that one. Does anyone here know where it will be in relation to the MB's?

Also, the last time I was in Chattanooga, I passed through the south part of DT, and was surprised to see a lot of activity going on there. Are there any plans for residential down there? Also, what was that building across from the Choo Choo on Market? It looks like it was a theater once.

Part of my family is from Chattanooga (I am from Murfreesboro). I've been to Chattanooga a few times and I must say it is a city that's got it's act together. It great to see a TN city preserve its architecture, making it both functional and aesthetic without having to build monster towers to add to its beauty.The streets downtown are spotless. I also admire the way Chattanooga takes advantage of its riverfront, landscaping, attractions, and preserving the environment by using efficient forms of energy.

Thanks so much four kind remarks. That's exactly why I like this city so much!
