We are moving in January 2010 to Tennessee

We are almost positive that we are going to be going to Chattanooga....job is a little flexible as far as location.

Does anyone live there, or have knowledge or experience on the area?

Please give me any information that you may have.

If it is too much to type, and you would rather talk on the phone, send me a message on here and we can arrange phone number swap some how.

Please, we are very excited but want more info than we are just finding online.

Thank you so very much for your time.

Mont Eagle is between Chatt. and where she lived its a neat place too. Sorry I dont have any info to share with you on schools and stuff like that but good luck with your move.

I live in Tennessee about an hour and twenty minutes from Chattanooga. Its great here. Small town no hassle. The only thing I dont like about it is the weather. It is either freezing or boiling it cant seem to make up its mind. The people here are great though. Schools are great. Good Luck.

If you are looking for a place to live you may be happier in Cleveland. It is about 20-30 minutes out from Chattanooga. It is alot cheaper there. Your connected to Chattanooga by the interstate, less crime, but still in a decent size city.

Yay!!! Me me me!!! I was raised there (Born in Cleveland about 15 mins away) now I live in Rossville Ga , which is literally 10 mins from East Ridge.

Like any other city there are good & bad parts of Chattanooga. If you move to East Ridge , it's really nice. Downtown is a little too bad for my taste , alot of drug dealing & gang activity. But like I said , I was raised there & I'm fine. My parents now live in East Ridge , they have a great school that my little sister went to. Spring Creek Elementary is the best , she now goes to the middle school & high school I went to which is East Ridge Middle & High. They're pretty good schools , they have to wear uniforms.

There are ALOT of attractions in Chattanooga. The Aquarium , The Creative Discovery Museam , Lots of outside concerts & shows (That I have to recommend because my step father does sound for those concerts).

I hope that you & I can maybe become friends if you move here. I don't do anything except sit at home with my 3 kids (Besides work every now & then. I'm a dancer). This can be a fun town !!! You should PM me so we can keep in touch & you can ask ?'s if you want!!

Hey cool! I see you on here all the time. I didn't know you were raised in Cleveland! I live in Ocoee, but in Cleveland all the time. I know what you mean, I sit at home with my 3 kids all the time too. lol
