Back in April, we asked our readers what’s a Chattanooga “life hack” you know of — and of course, y’all delivered. Here are a few pro tips from our readers:

“Submitting public works needs to 311 via the app allows you to track the city’s response to your needs. Potholes, street lights out, missing sidewalk panel... report it and they will fix it!” — @ridgedalecommunity

“Go to baseball games on Thursday. Less parking and [$1] draft night.” — Eliana T. Note: Check out drink specials here.

“The Tennessee Aquarium membership has been so incredible!! My boyfriend + I purchased one basic membership for $120 and because it comes with a guest pass, it gets us both in! We have been so many times and it’s so much cheaper than paying for a ticket every time!” — Hannah M.

Boccacia for free birthday pasta! It’s better than all the other offerings. And if your bday falls on Sunday when they are closed, you can go on Saturday or Monday.” — Kim K.

“When going to downtown (Hwy 27) from the ridge cutright-most, get in the right-most lane after exit 278B. Then you’ll bypass most of the Nashville-bound traffic.” — Jeff J.

“Most parking is free after 6.” — Alexandra F. (Check out our Chattanooga parking guide for more tips.)

“If you live in Northshore or North Chatt, but don’t have enough room to do woodworking or metalworking, join ChattLab Makerspace. Their membership is cheaper than a gym and has woodworking, metalworking, laser cutters, and 3d printers. I love that place. It’s right on Cherokee Blvd.” — Jeff J.

“Using the interstate to get around town is a good idea about 5% of the time. Avoid the interstate.” — Mike C.

Rock City annual pass. Pays for itself after two visits and you get to skip the lines.” — @sarahcatt

“Parking in a garage downtown. Then take the free electric shuttles around all day!” — @plant_hag
