Last week we asked if Chattanooga could have its own Hallmark movie, and if so, what would it look like?

We listed a few reasons why we believed the Scenic City would be the perfect backdrop for a Hallmark movie + included a survey for our readers to provide their thoughts as well. Spoiler alert: you all had a lot of thoughts — 81 of you, to be exact.

Here are a few responses we received that we believe would give the Hallmark executives some inspiration for when they choose Chattanooga as their next filming location:
