I completely agree with Thor. Saying Chattanooga is one of The Best Towns Ever is totally obsurd! I lived there for at least half of my life so I speak from experience. Sure it has some pretty scenery. And a few cool places. However get to the meat of the city and there lies the bleak, shallow reality. Culture? None. Good melting pot of people? No way. The reality of Chattanooga is it's a very shallow pond of small minded people. Good old boys, conservative, backwoods, Walmart dwellers. It pretends to be impressive but it's just smoke and mirrors. I promise anyone that considers moving there will regret it. Maybe go for a little vacation - you'll see all you need to see in a few days. You can dress a pig up in a dress but it's still a pig.
