Chattanooga's Summer PLAYlist

Create Memories You'll Want to Put on Repeat

This summer, experience the city like a local and create memories you will want to put on repeat. All summer long, the Scenic City will be filled with sounds of soulful beats at the Nightfall Concert Series, leaves crushing under your feet on a hike at Signal Point, laughter over dinner with friends, and children playing in the Coolidge Park water fountains. With so many ways to explore, Chattanooga’s Summer PLAYlist has made it easy for you to plan your summer adventure. 

Chattanooga's Summer PLAYlist lets visitors handpick their activities and curate personalized experiences. Visitors will build their PLAYlists with outdoor adventures, organized or self-guided tours, the best eats in the city, summer events, and more. 

To make your travel planning even easier, check out the PLAYlist Shuffle. The shuffle generates two options per category for those wanting recommendations on building out their PLAYlist and getting the most out of their visit. 

Start building your perfect PLAYlist, get ready to discover what it’s like to be a local, and make sure you are “Reelin’ in the Years.”
