What to do in Chattanooga?

5 posts in this topic

I'm working in downtown Chattanooga for a month, and I am looking for some advice about how to enjoy your city. I plan on doing some of the typical tourist things (Lookout Mountain and the Hunter museum), but what are some of the cool off-the-beaten path things to do that will really let me get to know your city? What are some good local restaurants (I hate chains) and bars? I'm in my twenties and single, so I'd like to get a taste of the nightlife here.

The Riverbend Festival is great. I highly recommend it. They are expecting 650,000 to attend this year.

Riverbend 2006 ended last night with another huge crowd of nearly 100,000. That was the most successful Riverbend Festival in it's 26 year history. The Allman Brothers Band headlined the final night that was capped off by as awesome fireworks display. Here's some pictures from last year's Riverbend Festival. Enjoy!

Awesome. I think I will hit it up a couple of nights. It looks like the Beale Street Music Fest with lawn chairs and minus the mud. Is it easy to get a cab back home from there? Where would be the best spot to get a cab?

Wow, I remember doing the Bessie Smith strut back in 89 and getting wasted walking down MLK. Bar to bar to bar to bar. Glad those days are over but I had a great time. At least I think I did. :alc:
