Sale Creek is an amazing town that is close to Chattanooga but you feel like your away from all the busyness of the city. I am raising two boys and soon a little girl. We started a small farm and are currently raising chickens and goats. I want my family to know where their food comes from. I love Sale Creek because of the land it offers and the small town feel. Leaving my house you turn one way and drive 30 mins and you will be in downtown Chattanooga where there is anything you could think of. Turn the other way and you are in small town USA. Each person I have met has a rich experience of life they are so willing to share.

I've lived here all my life. I really am not the fan because of things that have happened. It's a pretty boring town with literally nothing to do but drive somewhere else. The school has a lot of two faced people but that's high school. And about 3 out of 100 people actually do something with their life that come out of this strung out town.
Tiny town. Everyone knows one another. Overall, it feels very safe. I live across from a school and there is nearly always a police presence. I love that feeling of safety being a mother of two small children. It’s very quiet here. I will hopefully not be leaving anytime soon.
