Outside Magazine Names Chattanooga "Best Town Ever"
Recently, Outside magazine readers discovered what Baylor students have known for decades. If you love the great outdoors, there’s no better place than Chattanooga. Within minutes of our campus lie some of the nation’s most beautiful settings for kayaking, rafting, hiking, biking (road and mountain), rock climbing, paddle boarding, hang gliding, and more.
Nearby Shops and Restaurants
For those interested in a more laid back experience, a stroll across the Walnut Street pedestrian bridge takes you from hip shops and restaurants in the NorthShore neighborhood to cultural gems in the Bluff View Arts District. The Hunter Museum of American Art has one of the nation’s largest collections of American art and a few blocks farther downtown, you can meet more than 10,000 animals at the Tennessee Aquarium.

Chattanooga Area Convention and Visitor's Bureau website

plenty of wonderful things to discover about Chattanooga.
NOTE: Baylor is located minutes from the downtown area,
so downtown hotels and the bed and breakfast spots in the
Bluff View Arts District will be the most convenient in
