“I’m glad you are looking at Chattanooga as a possibility, and would love to share more information with you about this wonderful city! it’s an amazing little city. In the south it is, I believe, the only state to experience all four seasons in full, not just a lot of one and a little of another.
There’s no doubt about it – Chattanooga is an ideal city for retirees. Our community has been highlighted as a top city for retirees by Money Magazine, U.S. News and World Report, Retirement Lifestyles and Where to Retire magazines. With a reputation for cultivating a clean, green environment, Chattanooga is quickly becoming a favorite destination for energetic baby boomers seeking active retirement lifestyles.
Others are drawn to the Scenic City for its friendly atmosphere. Chattanooga offers retirees the ability to enjoy an affordable lifestyle.
