Chattanooga is a great off the beaten path Spring Break destination. In 2015 the city was also named the best place to live in by Outside Magazine. Tech startups are moving to the town of about 175,000 people, creating more jobs. Located by the rocky Tennessee River Gorge, you can count on Chattanooga offering a lot of adventure opportunities. Climbers love it for the sandstone cliffs; bikers like it for the 120 miles of tracks; and thrill seekers enjoy rafting in the Class IV–V rapids on the nearby Ocoee.
