Welcome to our new home: Chattanooga
“It’s not just geography, it’s a part of me, the air I breathe.”
– “Tennessee” by Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors
We’re lucky that our beautiful state is criss-crossed with natural river ways. Starting west with the Mississippi River, then the Cumberland River, & here in Chattanooga, the Tennessee River. Being by the water makes us feel at home, but beyond the riverbanks there is a city rippling with art, music, food, & people who quickly feel like family.
Dubbed “The Scenic City” and ranked #2 in Lonely Planet’s “Top 10 U.S Destinations To See in 2018”, Chattanooga boasts acres of natural beauty alongside top-notch eateries, museums, breweries, venues, & outdoor recreation.
And then there is Coolidge Park, we knew it was our home when we first laid eyes on it.
Coolidge Park, 13-acres located on the city’s northern shore, is nestled between the Tennessee River & Chattanooga’s NorthShore district, a walkable borough sprinkled with local shops, restaurants, & breweries. Above rests one of the world’s largest pedestrian bridges: The Walnut Street Bridge. Originally erected in 1890, Walnut Street Bridge was rejuvenated in May of 2010 & is now home to several community events throughout the year. Coolidge Park also boasts access to the Tennessee Riverwalk Greenway, interactive play fountains, the Outdoor Chattanooga Center, and a 100-year old antique carousel with 52 hand-carved animals. Restored by a local master wood carver, the 1894 Dentzel carousel is a one of several rarities within the bends of Coolidge Park. Even though this place felt like home right away, we knew something was missing: you.
We hope that you, our friends, will join us in meeting our new neighbors from September 8-9, 2018 & getting to know yet another part of our favorite state–our home, Tennessee.
