"My World and Welcome to It! :~)" happymom8285's Profile

I've lived in Chattanooga now for over half my life! I love living here and the relaxed, laid back pace of every day life. Chattanooga is a wonderful mid-sized town with a lot going for it. Free concerts in the summer, a fresh-water aquarium, (that is having an addition put on to open in spring 2005). A revitalized downtown area and a fun festival (called Riverbend) on the Tennessee River that runs for 10 days in June that features major bands and music from all over the world. We're surrounded by mountains that are part of the Appalachain Mountain range that run from Quebec, Canada all the way down to Alabama. Lookout Mt. was made famous in Martin Luther King, Jrs. "I Have A Dream" speech. There is plenty of Civil War history here as well. Atlanta is only a 1 1/2 hour drive away and Nashville is only a 2 1/2 hour drive.
So come and check us out sometime. We have something for everyone!

Spring comes pretty early in Chattanooga. In February, crocus, forsythia, daffodils and our beautiful flowering bradford pear trees are already blooming. We have many warm days, but we aren't fooled, because winter isn't through with us yet. In fact, we had one of the worst snow storms ever recorded here in March, 1992.

30 years ago, Chattanooga was an industrial city with dirty air quality and many factories along the Tennessee River. Due to some good city planners, the air was cleaned up and a revitalization of downtown began to take shape. We got our new aquarium, Children's Discovery Museum, an Imax theater, new restaurants and a riverwalk several miles long.

    What a spectacular intro photograph. Quite a nice HP. It's obvious that you are positive, enthusiastic, and downright "nice". I really liked Chattanooga when I visited.
