This is a very calm, welcoming town and it’s small, but expanding. There is a new outlet “mall” that includes a Buffalo Wild Wings, Kay store, Rue 21, Petco, Hobby Lobby, Marshall’s, Ross, and many more! Fort Oglethorpe is the kind of place to go for a Sunday drive.

I've lived here most of my life, and it has always been a safe and constructive community. The education system is growing better and better, and the city is always growing closer. This is the place parents dream of for their kids. It's always been a safe haven around here, and I'm proud to call this my hometown of 14 years. Everything is cheaper around here and the city work always gets finished. It's a beautiful place with many things to do nearby. It's also only minutes away from downtown Chattanooga where they always have a lot of attractive things to do there. With all of these establishments around the job opportunities are endless.
It is so diverse, you can find anything there. There are so many shopping and food opportunities. The jobs are incredible, Little Caesars specifically.
