  1. Shocks definitely had the right idea about Signal Mountain and up Hwy 27 toward Soddy Daisy which would be easy to commute. I24 would be a no go for me either direction from there. Used to work a half mile from Siskin and the best times to commute were before 6am and after 6pm. Anything in between was miserable on I24. Good luck in your search!
  2. I live in Apison. 20 miles east of downtown Chattanooga. Nice, small, growing, unincorporated(lower property taxes), but with all of the benefits of living in Chattanooga. 15 minutes from Hamilton Place mall. 30 minutes from downtown. Closer to the Smoky Mountains and the Ocoee. We take the little ones to Dollywood many times a year. Good mix of old/new homes and neighborhoods/farms/privacy. I live in a neighborhood with 1.5-5 acre lots that is surrounded by cattle/horse farms. There are also neighborhoods that are more front porch living. Low crime. You will want to stay in TN with no state income tax. Sales tax would be cheaper in GA, but your commute would be farther, and gas tends to be $0.20/gallon cheaper in TN than the Ringgold area. Ooltewah and Collegedale are nice areas as well, but property tax is almost double. Not sure where your commute would be daily? That needs to be a consideration as well. Traffic and the never ending road construction on I-24 are terrible for a city the size of Chattanooga. Luckily I do not have to drive into downtown for my job.
