We love it when magazines notice the beauty and charm Chattanooga has to offer, as well as the great taste its residents have. Southern Living in particular has highlighted Chattanooga many times, even inspiring one writer to gush, “It’s one of those places that you come back from and you immediately want to start writing. I fell in love with it. It has a really great energy. It is obviously moving forward in a tasteful, sophisticated and cool way.”

If you want to read more about what Southern Living has to say about Chattanooga, just check out these links and excerpts below!

"Unveiled in May 2005, Chattanooga's Riverfront has been heralded as a model of urban renewal. Its scenic network of parks and pathways links restaurants, shops, and family attractions along the river. Where slabs of concrete once lined the bank, grassy terraces cascade toward the water, a soft and scenic gathering spot for sunsets and special events." -Splashy River Town

"George Krauth has always loved bungalows. So when he, by chance, drove by this 1920s bungalow in Chattanooga, Tennessee’s St. Elmo neighborhood, “I stopped, called, and pretty much made an offer on the spot,” says George." -Chattanooga Bungalow with Vintage Style

"Jo Beth Kavanaugh loves restoring older houses. Her 1925 Arts and Crafts residence in the heart of downtown Chattanooga is a shining example of the past and present coming together in a fusion of rich history. When it's old, it doesn't have to be perfect. If the character is good, it's fine. You have to be flexible and open to the personal touch each element brings." -The Beauty of Indoor Brick

"In 1993, the reopening of the Walnut Street Bridge as a walkway to the NorthShore provided the catalyst for even more people to rediscover the neighborhood." -Best Neighborhoods: North Chattanooga in Chattanooga, TN

"Chattanooga’s Warehouse Row has refashioned itself since the 19th century as a Civil War fort, later as a textile warehouse district, and still later as an outlet mall. But we think its latest iteration, an industrial-chic cluster of boutiques, is a keeper." -Shop Chattanooga's Warehouse Row

"Fresh breads, steak to die for, clever menus, and fabulous wines await in this city." -Charming Chattanooga

"The couple opened this spot in the restored 1868 Southern Railway Freight Depot and came up with a menu of burgers made from locally sourced, all-natural ingredients, as well as the city's largest selections of bourbons." -Tennessee's Best Burgers
