North Georgia: Nature’s Playground and Beyond

August 24, 2023

Many of our home buyers are often from out-of-state and come across Chattanooga when looking for a fresh start for their family, and we don’t blame them! But what most people don’t know until they talk to a local is that North GA also has a LOT to offer when it comes to lifestyle! We wanted to highlight some of these hidden-gem benefits to living in North Georgia that most people don’t know about – so be sure to look out for our second blog post next week that will also highlight the financial benefits to moving to Georgia but staying close to Chattanooga in this two-part series.

One of the natural advantages of living in North Georgia is being surrounded by so many of nature’s playgrounds.

Some of our favorite trails are located on Lookout Mountain, just a stone’s throw away from our Huntley Meadows community. The mountain’s Cloudland Canyon Park and Lula Lake Land Trust offer an array of outdoor activities. Here, you can embark on scenic hiking, biking, and walking trails, or indulge your love for water with fishing and kayaking adventures. For family-oriented fun, explore renowned attractions such as Rock City, Ruby Falls, or even try your hand at Lookout Hang gliding if you’re looking for a thrill above the ridge lines.

But life in North Georgia isn’t just about embracing the outdoors.

The region is also home to a thriving shopping and dining scene that is ever-growing. Fort Oglethorpe, located along Battlefield Parkway, houses everything from convenient stores like Publix and Walmart, to local culinary delights like Farm to Fork and the Big Biscuit Barn. Fun-filled family outings are never far away with Bass Pro Shops and Top Golf just off of I-75.

Amidst this lively atmosphere, North Georgia still retains a charming small-town feel.

Just 15 minutes south from Huntley Meadows, you’ll discover the quaint town of Ringgold. A further 10-mile journey will lead you to Dalton, GA, a hub of more shops and outdoor activities. Or, if you’re looking for a night in the city, a short 15-minute drive will get you to everything that downtown Chattanooga offers too.

North Georgia offers a harmonious blend of natural beauty, recreational activities, and a warm, welcoming community. It promises an enriching lifestyle without the hefty price tag, making it the perfect place to call home.
