Chattanooga enjoys an abundance of natural beauty; located where several Mountain ranges converge bringing the states of Tennessee, northern Georgia, North Carolina together at the base of the Great Smoky Mountains. The Tennessee River, which winds through much of Hamilton County, feeds into Lake Chickamauga providing an endless array of water sports. Other unique outdoor activities range from hang-gliding off Lookout Mountain to inner tubing/canoeing down the Sequatchie River to White Water Rafting the Great Ocoee River (third white water river in the US, host to the Summer Olympics) to biking, golfing or horseback riding amidst the scenic backdrop of the mountains.
