Explore the East Brainerd and East Ridge Neighborhoods

Hugging the Tennessee-Georgia border just east of Chattanooga is the growing East Brainerd and East Ridge suburbs.


This thriving suburb gives residents the perks of city life (with a short 15-minute drive into downtown) with the added bonus of more space, more schools, and family-oriented activities. Located in the heart of the scenic south and serving as the gateway to Tennessee, these communities offer distinct and unique benefits and a range of activities – from outlet shopping, to golfing, to downtown excursions. And much to the excitement of residents and businesses alike, construction is underway in East Ridge to be the new home of the Chattanooga Red Wolves, complete with a $150 million renovated soccer stadium.
