In the past week or so, Chattanooga has gotten several mentions from national media. 

Parade has a piece called "20 Reasons to Love Chattanooga, Tennessee," which includes mentions for several businesses, such as The Flying Squirrel, Easy Bistro & Bar, Niedlov's Breadworks and Main Street Meats—which recently got its own feature in Garden & Gun magazine.

Forbes mentioned Chattanooga's "tech surge," and Branch Technology has gotten at least two articles on its freeform 3-D-printed house. Click here to read about that from Slate and here from Design Boom.
