What Bert Has To Say About Cleveland Metro Area

Cherokee, commerce, and Chattanooga – these might be the “three C’s” best associated with this small town in southeast Tennessee. Cleveland is a fairly nondescript, small Southern town located along I-81 at the base of the Appalachian and Great Smoky mountains within long commute range of Chattanooga. The Cherokee heritage adds some historic interest, and nearby mountains and the Cherokee National Forest offer plenty of outdoor recreation. Chattanooga helps fill the gaps in amenities, cultural and recreational assets.
