Default Chattanooga

Chattanooga is one of the worst places to relocate to. You asked about how the locals feel about mixed realtions, well they will look at you like you are from another planet. chattanooga and Tennessee in general come in at the bottom of any list you can find about good things. They rank nearly last in education, health, money almost anything. There are jobs but they are low paying. The schools are very bad exept over the border in Georgia. The income is higher in Georgia as well. There is no income tax in Tennessee but Chattanooga has nearly a 10% sales tax. The property tax in the area is also on the rise. You don't see a murder every night but compared to its population crime is very high, one of the worst in the country. There are very few places open late, many places closed from 2pm-5pm. There are lots of mountains but no lakes. There are several rivers in the area. It is a nice place to visit and there is very little traffic. There is always open parking spaces downtown. Despite the little traffic the drivers are bad. No turn signals, lots of accidents, DUI, and sometimes there is a mile of space in between you and the next car but people will always cut directly in front of you with no warning. I hope this info helps. I moved here a few years ago and I can't wait to leave.
