    A favorite place for southerners to visit - Chattanooga was named the best city in America by Outdoor Magazine.
    Where do beach people go on vacation? Often the mountains in Tennessee. A few pics from a recent visit to the Nooga.

    First a full stomach at one of the best fried chicken spots in the entire nation - lunch at Champy's Chicken - as good as it gets.

    Like the Red Bar, but without the salt air, mermaids, Jabo or Balder.

    Chattanooga has a lot of energy and has grown quite a lot over the last 20 years - it's Tennessee's 4th largest city. It's walkable and friendly. Small pockets of development and redevelopment can be seen everywhere - like these mod apartments near the river.

    Chattanooga Receives World’s Most Prestigious Outdoor Award for the Second Time


    Chattanooga, TN | Friday, June 5, 2015
    – After beating 63 great towns across the nation, Chattanooga proudly claims Outside magazine’s prestigious 2015 Best Town Ever award. In order to be a contender in this bracket tournament, towns needed to have: great access to trails and public lands and thriving restaurants and neighborhoods. Outside magazine is the leading publication for outdoor enthusiasts.

    As the newest Best Town Ever winner, Chattanooga will appear on the cover and have a feature article in the September 2015 issue of Outside magazine.

    Time to get out of town for a hike at nearby South Cumberland State Park. The Fiery Gizzard Trail, as the story goes, got its name from a time Davy Crockett was dining with some native Americans around a fire. He stabbed a piece of meat, popped it in his mouth, and hollered, "that there's one fiery gizzard"!

    We chose a seat at the amazing Mountain Goat Market in Monteagle - amazing sandwiches and souvenirs - "stuff your face with local freshness".
