Hixson

Why you'd want to live in Hixson

Hixson is a large suburb north of Downtown Chattanooga and emerged around sixty years ago, resulting in midcentury modern construction, ranchers, and split levels dotting the area’s rolling hills. Like other suburbs here, Hixson consists of many other smaller neighborhoods. However, this community is packed with amenities and shopping along Highway 153 and includes plenty of conveniently located waterfront property (link). The sheer convenience and variety of quick routes to Downtown make this location a popular choice for families, students, and young professionals who want more living space for their money without sacrificing a long commute time. Bordered by Red Bank to the West, North Chattanooga to the south, and the Tennessee River and Lake Chickamauga to the east, Hixson is very centrally located within the larger metropolitan area. Many neighborhoods are excellent for families with their sidewalks, cul-de-sacs, and winding lightly trafficked streets. Even with this characteristic, Hixson is far from a cookie-cutter suburban image. It has a unique demographic makeup, ranging from baby boomers to college students. Recreational activities include the Greenway Farms an easy hiking trail bordering North Chickamauga Creek and a large dog park. DuPont Park is another recreational complex that includes soccer fields, a playground, picnic pavilions, and drinking fountains. This park also features Chattanooga’s first Disc Golf Course, which is free and open to the public. Other nearby parks include Chester Frost and the Tennessee River walk extends to the Chickamauga Dam south of Hixson.
