It is one of the best walking bridges in the country. Can't beat the view, and the North end delivers you into the North shore district of little shops and restaurants. The wood on the bridge is stripped and coated periodically so it is in...More

Never have I once had a bad walk across this bridge. It's a lovely bridge with absolutely beautiful views and it's a good location to go after a filling dinner.

We walked over the bridge to get to the old carousel. It was a nice walk, good view. Not sure what else to say... its a walking bridge lol.

We visited this bridge and it is so nice....Chattanooga has an excellent vision for saving structures like this...You can walk over the Tennessee River on a 19th century bridge with no admission and stunning views. One more point for Chattanooga~

Walk the bridge. Good exercise and great views of both sides of the river and historic sites. Enjoy the restaurants on the north side and downtown area on the south.

I didn't get married there but the bridge is pretty wide. I think you'd just need to find out the dimensions of it and go from there.
