The Times Free Press today said the worlds largest downtown climbing wall is almost done. This is related to the Iron Man because it's an athletic activity, but also a tourist draw. I think Chattanooga is doing a lot right at the moment. Knoxville leaders need to take a peek at their southern sibling.

I tried to post the link, but Ive reached my monthly viewing limit for that paper. (Rolls eyes)

It has a lot going for it. They really know how to draw tourists into town. Know how to draw businesses too apparently.

I like living in Nashville and having parents/siblings near Chattanooga. I get to experience a little of both cities.
