Took an evening stroll across the bridge and it was beautiful. Interesting to read the historical information. On one end you need to visit the old carousel and on the other go down to the riverwalk area (down by the aquarium).

Great view from the bridge and fun, kid friendly things are available to do on both ends. Definitely get the ice cream at Clumpies and use the coupon they give you at the visitor center.

The walking bridge is a beautiful place to sit and watch the Tennessee river flow by. I enjoy the events that take place here. On the the end of the bridge is a few shops and restaurants. Free except for the events.

The walking was good exercise, learned some history about the city and the bridge. It was very pretty that evening as well. The pictures are taken from the bridge outward across the river.

This is probably my favorite thing in Chattanooga! A beautiful bridge that connects Northshore to downtown. We enjoyed stopping and enjoying the view from benches located along the bridge.

I will never forget the night time stroll my husband and I had the day of our wedding across this lovely bridge. I'm so glad my sister caught this moment on a photo that has become a treasure for us. We decided to move to Chattanooga because of this bridge. It's one of Chattanooga's greatest beauty features to see morning... More

I love this city and this bridge is a great way to get from Northshore to Downtown or to just walk to the middle for some great skyline views.

This was a wonderful bridge to connect us to north shore. We got to Walk from the aquarium area without having to worry about getting hit by cars.
