Lots of people mentioned the bridge, but without an event at the bridge there is not much to it, just a walk across the river.

This was a nice walk over the Tennessee River at night. Great views of the city skyline at night. Fireworks from the baseball stadium added to the experience. Gentle breeze and many people enjoying the walk!

As you might expect, the river view from the bridge at night is a pleasure, and there are enough park benches that you can stop and rest as you wish. This is clearly a place that both "locals" and tourists enjoy.

The Walnut street bridge is a Great way to get some exercise in downtown Chattanooga, TN. There is plenty of room whether you are riding a bike/Segway or just taking a stroll. Also there are great views of the aquarium and Hunter museum of Art. Go right before sunset for a nice breeze and great pictures!

Just like the rest of the city. The bridge is a nice place to ride. We rode around the area to catch the sunset. Plenty of room for riders & walkers.

The Walnut Street bridge is a walking bridge crossing the Tennessee River in downtown Chattanooga. It great for exercise, walking the dog, scheduled activities like street musicians, art displays and even one tasting. It's beautifully restored and a gem for the downtown River district.

This is a unique attractions for any city. Great place to walk and get some exercise. The views are spectacular and there are places to have an ice cream or beer on either side. Cool place to walk or run.
