Weather didn’t allow us to stay long but the bridge is pedestrian friendly so you can walk to the other side of the Tennessee River. Cool experience!

It was a nice walk. It was chilly and overcast the day we went. Parking is convenient, though you do have to pay the meter. It's right off the main road which has restaurants, coffee shops, and lovely stores.

A great place for a leisurely stroll across the Tennessee River and back. It is peaceful, with no cars, and the views of the city are great.

Easy walk, beautiful views, and free!!! We love walking and are always looking for cost-conscious ways to explore new cities. This was perfect. Not too long, and there’s great things on both sides: parks on one end, aquarium and downtown area on the other.

This was a neat stroll. You can see the winding sidewalk which is really cool. The views of Chattanooga from the bridge are good. We enjoyed a leisurely stroll.

Run, walk or stroll. No matter. The bridge itself is old and rustic but the views of the Chattanooga riverfront are awe-inspiring. Pedestrians only except for the occasional bicyclist or skateboarder.

Our family really enjoys the outings which include the bridge. It connects downtown with the trendy North shore area and connects to the Riverwalk as well. One can get a fantastic photo op on the bridge.

May have been the coldest day of the year with snow the day before, but the Bridge still provided beautiful vistas for the proposal. Walking over the river at sunset with the scenic aquarium buildings and museums in the background is spectacular. Always worth the...More

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.
