How’s it going, Chattanooga? 👋 Intern Cassidy here, and we may be in the midst of a pandemic, but summertime and warm weather are still upon us, and I know all you Chattanoogans are itching to participate in some more outdoor activities before fall arrives.

This could be fun for a while, but there are more options, promise. | Gif via GIPHY

I rounded up something for everyone, so take a look, then get outside and enjoy these last glorious days of summer. ☀️
