I know there are folks from Upstate SC and Knoxville floating around out there, so what are your thoughts on Chattanooga? Anyone else that's been there is welcome to comment too.
From all that I've read about it and my brief first visit there last weekend, it seems like a place I could like. It's Southern, yet talks a lot about sustainability, bike lanes, outdoor recreation and other things that aren't always associated with mid-size Southern cities. I'd love to move out West for outdoors, funky art/coffee culture, bike-culture, etc., but Portland and other places like it seem pretty much full-up on progressive planner types. Chattanooga or Asheville, NC (if I could get a job and afford to live there!) seem like decent compromises. I'm curious for people's thoughts though!
