Chattanooga, TN

A $120 million renovation of the city’s waterfront has put this formerly sleepy river town on the traveler’s map. Take time to explore the recently built Main Terrain Art Park, with sculptures by contemporary artist Thomas Sayre, and the Southside neighborhood’s galleries and music venues. Despite these upgrades, the food here remains decidedly down-home. Don’t miss the buttermilk fried chicken at TerraMáe Appalachian Bistro ($$), the buzzy new restaurant inside Stone Fort Inn ($). You can work off the meal with a leisurely bike ride around the city. —Anna Watson
