Nice old bridge. Thats all I can say. One must be a bridge aficionado to be interested. I am not one.

This bridge is open to pedestrian traffic only and is a very peaceful stroll across the Tennessee River. The bridge itself is over 100 years old and is in the middle of it second restoration. Even though it is currently being repainted, it is still kept open to pedestrians. Make sure to check it out during the "Wine over Water"... More

A really pleasant walk. Cool but not overly cold morning. Beautiful view of the city and the river. Interesting fact posted along the walk.

Great night view over the river. Wonderful time away from hustle and bustle. Nothing like quality time with the one you love. Stroll across to Frazier Ave, share a ice cream cone, ride the merry go round, and take the time to say a silent prayer to God for giving us a beautiful city

We love walking the Walnut Street Bridge. It's good exercise in a beautiful setting. The history that goes with it is important to understanding Chattanooga.

A complete pedestrian bridge crossing the Tennessee River in downtown Chattanooga. When I was a child the river was so dirty that industrial buildings lined the banks and there was no view at all. Things have changed, the river is clean, the banks cleared of old buildings and downtown Chattanooga is vibrant. The bridge is next to the aquarium and... More

It was a nice place, and it has a really cool history! That being said, it is still a bridge; don't expect to spend hours there, although the sunsets are quite nice and there is a nice view of the skyline
