9 Reasons Chattanooga Is the Adventure Capital of the South
In 10 years of traveling, I’ve always thought that I had to trek to places like Patagonia and New Zealand to seek outdoor adventure. I didn’t realize I could find it close to home in places like Chattanooga.
Chattanooga (or ‘Nooga’ as locals call it) is located in the rugged mountains of southeast Tennessee and is the state’s fourth largest city. Its downtown along the Tennessee River is continually being revitalized, but I visited for the nearby hiking, rock climbing, and whitewater rafting, among other exciting outdoor sports.
