A nice place to walk with your honey or your family, especially at night. I liked the lights and safe feel at night. It was a nice atmosphere the locals are really nice and willing to show you around to the best local highlights.

Nicely preserved camel back truss bridge that is a cool walk in the summertime. Glad the locals saved this bridge!

I've never walked across a river! Using the bridge to get from North Shore to DT Chattanooga gives you another perspective on what the area has to offer. Scenery was beautiful!

Enjoyed walking across the bridge and reading the historical signs along the way. They allow dogs and provide doggie bags at both ends.

We walked the bridge after dark and it was so cool. There were lots of people out walking and jogging on the bridge. This is a great way to walk off your dinner. There are some bars and eating places on the other side of the bridge.

One might think it odd to have a bridge listed as an attraction (other than the Golden Gate) but the Walnut Street Bridge is a lovely part of the Chattanooga downtown experience. It is wide allowing for a leisurely stroll. There are benches along the way where one can stop to rest or take in the view. People jog, walk... More
