Chattanooga honors and celebrates every military reunion – and would be delighted to host yours! Nestled along the banks of the Tennessee River and surrounded by the scenic Appalachian Mountains and the Cumberland Plateau, Chattanooga provides something for everyone.
Offering the perfect mix of accommodations, dining, scenic beauty and attractions for any reunion, Chattanooga is within a 3-hour drive of 10 million people and centrally located in the Southeast. Interstates 75, 59 and 24 feed directly into the city. Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport is just a 15-minute drive from downtown and is serviced by carriers offering non-stop and one-stop flights to over 1,000 cities.
History buffs will appreciate our Civil War heritage and appreciate a tour of the Chickamauga-Chattanooga National Military Park and Chattanooga’s National Cemetery, as well as the Battles for Chattanooga and Point Park.
The 21st Century Waterfront project has transformed the city’s riverfront and enriched the community with pedestrian piers, unique retail shops, waterfront parks, and expansions of the Tenneessee Aquarium, the Hunter Museum of American Art, and The Creative Discovery Museum. All are linked from one end of downtown to the other by free electric shuttles that transports guests from the hotel to attractions without the worry of driving.
Our new waterfront is only a part of what makes us such a great destination. On the southern bluffs of the Tennessee River, the Bluff View Art District offers fine dining overlooking the river, museums, galleries, quaint bed and breakfast accommodations, and an outdoor sculpture garden. Riverboat cruises and railroad tours are available for interested planners. Just six miles from downtown and high-top Lookout Mountain are the timeless attractions of Rock City, Ruby Falls, and the Incline Railway.
We know planning a reunion isn’t always easy, so the first step to success is to contact the Chattanooga CVB’s reunion specialist, Christina Petro. She will get you started so you can take advantage of our extensive complimentary CVB support.
