Spring is in full swing, and before we know it, summer will be right around the corner. It’s about time to start planning summer travel—long weekends, day trips, and weeklong ventures. If you’re looking for a fun and easy long weekend trip—or even a quick overnight stop on a longer journey—you’ll love a visit to Chattanooga, Tennessee.
I may be a little biased, but Chattanooga is one of the prettiest cities I’ve ever lived in. We don’t call it the Scenic City for nothing. With a name like that, you can probably imagine how many beautiful and perfectly Instagrammable photo spots there are in Chattanooga. Just browse through all the #chattanooga hashtags on Instagram, and you’ll see what I mean.
Ah, Valentine’s Day. The holiday we all love to hate. For some, it’s just another day on the calendar. For others, it’s a day to show someone just how special they are to you—whether that person is a significant other, spouse, or just a dear friend. But there’s one other person you should never forget to take time for on Valentine’s Day—and that’s yourself!
One of the things I love about Chattanooga’s food scene is that new places pop up pretty often. Last year, the West Village opened with some new restaurants, boutiques and other fun businesses. One of those restaurants is Citron Et Sel, a tequila and provisions bar. I finally got to check it out a couple weeks ago, just in time to try some of their new menu items.
‘Tis the season for all the shopping! I went to the big mall in Chattanooga last weekend, and y’all, I got out of there as soon as I could. It was so crowded and just not fun to be there. That’s a huge part of why I’m making an effort to shop local this holiday season. That, and my love for supporting local brands and establishments.
Who doesn’t love a good biscuit? If you ask me, breakfast and/or brunch should always include a biscuit. Or sometimes, breakfast or brunch should just be a biscuit. Fortunately for biscuit enthusiasts like myself, Chattanooga has plenty of places to enjoy a tasty biscuit, almost any time of day.
