What are you thankful for this year? You’re sure to hear this question a lot soon, so start working on your answer. Thankfully, there’s plenty to be grateful for in Chattanooga, from hidden gem businesses you found this year, to the work our local organizations are doing, to your favorite hiking views.

We’ll go first. City Editor Kristen is grateful for the new restaurants that have opened in town to satisfy her foodie heart. Attack of the Tatsu, Elsie’s Daughter, and Little Coyote have already left her with a happy and full stomach more times than she can count.

City Editor Haley is grateful for the moments she’s been able to connect + share with the community. From wheel-throwing with Scenic City Clay Arts to getting a tour of Reflection Riding’s campus, it’s hard not to love working in the Scenic City.

Keep the thanks train rolling — share yours to be featured in an upcoming newsletter.
