"Best Town Ever!"
Outside Magazine Names Chattanooga "Best Town Ever"
Chattanooga is a two-time winner of Outside magazine's Best Town title, confirming what Baylor students have known for decades. If you love the great outdoors, there’s no better place than the "scenic city!" 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 cool shops and restaurants in the NorthShore neighborhood to cultural gems in the Bluff View Arts District. From weekly trips to Whole Foods or sipping lattes at local coffee shops, our Student Activities Director is always planning excursions and outings to all of the popular spots in town, so our boarding students can enjoy all the area has to offer.

family, a visiting parent, or faculty new to Baylor, there's
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
