The Chattanooga Tourism Co. has opened a new Chattanooga Information Center, located on the Tennessee Aquarium Plaza.
The Information Center, open daily, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., serves as a welcoming hub in the heart of downtown’s Riverfront District and provides local and regional information to visitors and residents.
“As the health of our visitor economy has bounced back, we needed a place where we could fully engage and connect with our visitors and residents again,” says Barry White, president and CEO of the Chattanooga Tourism Co. “Our team has consistently provided quality visitor services, but we are excited to be back in a dedicated, welcoming environment where we absolutely refuse to let anyone feel like a tourist.”
The Chattanooga Tourism Co. operated a brick-and-mortar Visitors Center from 2011-2013, a semi-permanent location from 2014-2020 that closed due to the pandemic and, most recently, a temporary mobile Information Center. The mobile Information Center will continue to provide local and regional information through activation and event participation throughout the city.
The Information Center features an open-air concept with photo opportunities and digital kiosks accessible 24/7. The interactive kiosks showcase things to do, places to eat, and events and allow people to build their own itineraries.
