We've put our heads together and created this list of 10 reasons why Chattanooga is such a special place to live. 

1. The Tennessee Aquarium

From electric eels to awesome otters, the Tennessee Aquarium is a place to explore everything under the sea, lakes and rivers. It even has a butterfly garden when you want to see some splashes of color above the water. And the aquarium's location on the Tennessee River is next to perfect.

In fact, you can eat around the globe while dining in Chattanooga. Some of the local favorites include Boathouse, Lupi's PizzaUrban Stack, Boccacia and Tremont Tavern. 

3. Big City Feel in a Smaller Size

Chattanooga offers all of the amenities you need for a comfortable lifestyle without the cumbersome features of a big city--like traffic and frenzied people rushing back and forth. It's friendly and slow-paced yet sophisticated and loaded with cultural activities. And if you really want the "big city" experience, you're less than two hours from Atlanta, Nashville, Birmingham and Knoxville

4. World's Fastest Internet

Chattanooga is notable for being the first city on the globe to offer city-wide 10-gig Internet. This makes it a tech-friendly place to live.

5. Low Cost of Living

The cost of rent for commercial space and the price of Chattanooga homes for sale are significantly lower than other cities in the area. You don't have to have millions to live comfortably in Chattanooga.

6. Breathtaking Scenery

With the exception of central China, Chattanooga has more tree and wildflower varieties than anywhere else. The city's also close to many lakes and rivers, which means the scenery around the city is truly splendid. Take a boat out on the river to get another perspective of just how beautiful Chattanooga really is.

7. Up and Coming City

Outside Magazine named Chattanooga one of the Best Towns in America. Chattanooga was also the first mid-sized city to create its own district specifically dedicated to advancing innovative workplaces. The Innovation District is bringing many new companies and jobs to Chattanooga. It truly is an "up and coming" community.

8. Kind, Welcoming People

Chattanooga embraces southern hospitality. Everywhere you look, you'll be greeted with a smile and a friendly handshake. The people here are simply pleasant to be around, and you'll find them to be great neighbors.

9. Ideal Weather

Sure, it will rain from time to time, but the climate in Chattanooga is mild. You will have four distinct seasons, but the weather is rarely too cold or too hot.

10. Easy Access

Chattanooga offers easy access to the city and its amenities, which you can reach from I-75. Once in the city, take the CARTA Downtown Electric Shuttle for free or take advantage of the Bike Chattanooga bike share program to get around town without spending a fortune or messing with your car.
