Locals rave about Firebirds Wood Fired Grill, which serves up tasty food and on-point service. The wood-fired grilled salmon, one of the restuarant's signature dishes, comes accented with a flavorful vegetable medley and mashed potatoes. The mixed greens and praline pecan salad makes an appetizing precursor to any meal. For a complete dining experience, try something decadent from the dessert menu -- such as the creme brulee cheesecake. The restaurant even makes flourless chocolate cake for those following gluten-free diets.

For a relaxed, diner-style experience, locals go to City Cafe Diner. Regulars keep coming back for the plentiful portions and highly recommend the cafe's breakfast items, particularly the quesadilla and burrito omelettes. All omelettes include a side of home fries or grits. The diner also tempts customers' tastebuds with a display of towering, frosted cakes. Locals say the hummingbird cake (a banana pineapple spice cake common in the South) is to-die-for and so large that three people can split a slice of it. Not only does City Cafe's food earn great reviews for its flavor, but the prices are also reasonable.

For a social night out that involves live music, locals go to Sky Zoo, a lively venue with stellar entertainment. Known for its friendly atmosphere and diverse crowd, the establishment houses pool tables, darts, karaoke, and three full bars. Hosting an array of musical acts, Sky Zoo exudes more of a club vibe at night. Open seven days a week, this place has plenty of televisions for customers looking to catch the big game.


First inhabited by Native Americans, the land that Collegedale now occupies once formed a central battleground during the American Civil War. Incorporated in 1968, Collegedale receives recognition as the home of a respected private university, Southern Adventist University, which was established in 1916.

The Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum, one of the most popular attractions in the area, provides visitors with a one-of-a-kind experience. Literally a moving exhibit, the train takes visitors for a ride while they absorb the historical knowledge their guide has to offer. The museum hosts a number of events throughout the year. Pricing varies based on the type of event and number of people.


The Chattanooga Area Regional Transportation Authority (CARTA), provides residents with various means of transportation. CARTA consists of 16 bus routes, Care-A-Van services for the physically or mentally impaired, trolley-style rail cars that carry riders to and from Lookout Mountain, and free shuttle services for students.

Though many residents do choose to drive their own vehicles, cab services such as Uber and Lyft also serve the area. Considered a very safe neighborhood, Collegedale accommodates cyclists and encourages a green lifestyle for locals. In fact, the area features a number of scenic biking trails, and many individuals choose to walk to neighborhood destinations.

For those who drive their own vehicles, most establishments provide free parking for customers. However, when drivers need to find parking, structures are located on Manufacturers Road and Riverfront Parkway. The city has installed parking meters along North Shore and Riverfront Parkway, which cost $0.75 per hour. Residents easily access major highways, including I-75, I-24, and I-59, from the Collegedale neighborhood.

It costs just over $2 for an individual to travel to the city center via public transportation, and the price of gas runs six percent lower than the national average. Rent for a one-bedroom apartment in Collegedale costs about $995 per month.

The average price for a beer at a local pub ranges between $2 and $4 depending on whether you order a domestic or craft beer. However, keep in mind that many surrounding bars and restaurants host great happy hour specials, which also include food items.


Locals love Hamilton Place Mall, which houses over 100 stores. With both casual and designer brand shops, visitors get the best of both worlds. When shoppers need a food or snack break, they can choose from over 20 dining options, from frozen yogurt to Bonefish Grill.

A local gem, Encore Consignment Boutique carries name-brand items at discounted prices, including popular labels like Michael Kors, Ann Taylor, and Banana Republic. When you shop here, you can wear designer clothing without the designer price tag. Fit for a Queen Boutique, another local favorite, carries fashionable women's clothing in a variety of sizes.

For basic grocery needs, residents go to Village Market. The market carries natural products -- including fresh meats, produce, and baked goods -- and has been serving locals for more than 50 years. For farm-fresh produce sourced from regional vendors, visit Main Street Farmers Market all year round, open every Wednesday from 4 to 6 p.m. or 4 to 5 p.m. in the winter months.


Perhaps the most popular park in the neighborhood, Veteran's Memorial Park honors veterans and works to serve the United States Military. Filled with pathways winding through beautiful greenery and memorial statues and plaques, visitors can walk, run, or ride their bikes here. There is no admission fee.

Those with furry friends enjoy visiting the Collegedale Dog Park, which features plenty of open space for dogs to roam. Every year, the park hosts a Christmas Parade and Dog Party, where dog owners have the opportunity to ask veterinary professionals questions about their pets.

Coolidge Park also hosts a number of events every year. Overlooking the Tennessee River, the park houses open green spaces, an antique carousel, picnic areas, and rock-climbing facilities. The park sits in an entertainment hub, just a walk away from great dining options and concert venues.
