Chattanooga has access to navigable rivers in the form of the Tennessee River, and also has airfield access by way of Chattanooga's Lovell Field. Chattooga County is surrounded to the east and west by Interstate 75 & Interstate 59 with prime highway & rail infrastructure internally.

Approximately a two hour trip east, Birmingham is one of Alabama's most important cultural, education, and economic centers. Birmingham's Shuttlesworth International Airport, the largest airfield in the state, also provides leading corporate and commercial flight access.

Less than a two hour drive south, Atlanta, Georgia stands as the epicenter of education, athletics, transportation, and commerce in the Southeastern United States. With cultural venues second-to-none in the South, and an endless array of athletic and educational opportunities, Atlanta is the go-to place for a variety of important fields. Atlanta is also home to Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, the world's largest airport. Handling over 700,000 tons of goods and millions upon millions of passengers each year, Hartsfield-Jackson makes Atlanta the hub of the East Coast.
