  • If you are in the downtown area, make sure you walk across the Walnut Street Bridge and explore the North side of the river. Fun to walk across a pedestrian-only bridge!

  • Your daily quintessential Chattanooga thing to do! Beautiful views and such a community place to be. Love it!
  • Walnut Street bridge has some great views of the river. Best time to go is early or late in the day to watch the sunrise, sunset, or the moonrise and sunset east and west at the same time. The area is under construction.
