This was a gorgeous walk when we visited Chattanooga. We loved walking around on both sides of the bridge and getting coffee at a local spot. This is a must if you're visiting!

Walking this bridge was the highlight of our trip. It was such a nice walk and fun way to discover the area. We spend about three hours exploring both sides of the bridge. Every angle was perfect. We really enjoyed it here.

This beautiful old rain bridge is all wooden walkway now with great views of both Chattanooga's downtown riverfront, but also the riverboats, rec boats, and kayaks that are on the water. This also connects the Aquarium and Arts District area with the more hipster Northshore...More
