My wife and I are looking to move if at all possible during 2009. I would prefer to be in Northern GA, and Ringgold or the immediate area looks to be a real possibility.

What can anyone tell me about the area? I hope to be visiting GA and TN (Chattanooga) in the early Spring. We will be retiring and have no children.

Good, bad, indifferent, tax info, crime, etc. All would be helpful.

Any links for more info would also be a real help.

Ringgold has a small town feel yet is only 20 minutes from downtown Chattanooga,TN. Plus your only 15 minutes from Hamilton Place Mall and tons of shopping. I live in Windstone which is a gated golf community. Its a beautiful area and you should drive through the neighborhood on your visit. In addition to the #1 ranked golf course there is a pool,tennis, restaurant and well organized neighborhood association. The homes in the back of the neighborhood sit at the top of the mountain with great views of White Oak mountain. Most homes are in the $300's but with the economy there are three or four homes between $199-$269. These are a steal for this neighborhood! Hope this helps.

We moved to Ringgold from Chicago and all I can tell you is that we made the right choice. The scenery is beautiful and there is just so much to do.
I'm a Civil War buff so for me,I'm in heaven.

My husband and I are considering retirement in Ringgold. We have both lived in the County of Los Angeles for the better part of 60 years so this would be a big change. All of the comments regarding Ringgold are reassuring, especially those remarks about the beautiful scenery.

I would appreciate any comments about the effects of the 2011 tornado and how it affected the economy in Ringgold. That aside, from all the different threads I've read, it sure sounds like a lovely place and a much welcome change from S. California.
