We also have a mobile Visitor Center at the plaza in front of the Tennessee Aquarium (weather permitting). Both sites are open 7 days/wk from 10am to 5pm EST. The mobile site will not be open during the winter months. A world class rock climbing facility is being constructed at our permanent site. We hope to be back in that location in early 2014. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. « less

I think my experience was completely thrown off because they were in the process of moving from their temporary location. The staff was nice enough and offered good advice. Regardless, it never hurts to check out the local visitor center on day 1.

This is a great place to start your visit to downtown Chattanooga. They really do have a lot to offer. The staff is warm, friendly, and helpful. And all of the info is free!

We went to the visitors center which at the time was just out in the open, not in a building. The people were not helpful at all. We had a couple of questions which they were not able to answer. The only thing they told us to do was to walk across the birdge and go to the arts district.... More

Permanent quarters are being remodeled, but no signs tell visitors where the center is temporarily in operation. Permanent signage on the streets is also very poor, sporadic, and in some cases misleading. Several police were asked and were unaware where the Visitor Center was located. We finally stumbled on a card table, a chair, and some pamphlets in the middle... More

While the Visitor Center is yet to open there were 2 representatives set up just outside the Aquarium who were amazing. Both gentlemen were knowledgeable, friendly and outgoing. Definitely good ambassadors for the Welcome Center.

Visitor Center was located at the terminal point (next to Chattanooga Choo Choo) for the free shuttle bus to the TN river. Staff was very helpful with directions and offered many discount coupons for various attractions. Easy to deal with and aware of all details for attractions.

The two friendly ladies in the visitor center were informative and knowledgeable. Their tips about parking, the free shuttle, and discount tickets saved us a lot of money. They were able to give us first hand information about many of the attractions and what to expect. I recommend this as a first stop for anyone traveling to Chattanooga for the... More
