Ah, Spring in Chattanooga! That glorious time when the sun is shining, the flowers and trees are blooming and the weather is the perfect temperature of mid 70's. In my humble opinion, there is nowhere as wonderful as the south in the spring. Chattanooga is one of the prettiest places in Tennessee. Living here this time of year is like living a charmed life. Head out for a run in the morning and it is still cool. Meet friends for lunch and sit in the sunshine on a patio. Head out for an afternoon stroll along the Riverwalk and the buzz of the bees amid the blooming trees is truly idyllic. Chattanooga weekends also get more fun during the spring months. Chattanooga has a thriving social, food and arts scene and here is something to do almost every single day and the weekends get busy very quickly. Here are your best bets for this weekend!
Baseball is huge in the United States and Chattanooga is home to a farm team,the Chattanooga Lookouts, which enjoys a huge following and is located in the heart of downtown.
