Great romantic stroll

It was raining while we were there but that didn't take away from the beautiful scene with the river and the city.

One day in Chattanooga so tried to fit in as much as possible. Fun walk across pedestrian bridge. Lots of locals out plus tourists. Good views of Tennessee River.

If you stay home n Chattanooga make sure you enjoy this along with the rest of downtown. Get up early and enjoy the sunrise over the Tennessee river.

While on my visit I was able to rent a bike and ride across this bridge. It was a great get-away very quite and serene. Wonderful view of the river. I went close to sunset and the sun hit the river just right.

You can walk over the river here and get a really nice view. For more athletic visitors, that is probably pretty neat. There was a bit of construction on the bridge when we were there too. Bicyclists were super rude and ready to run you over.

You can get some good scenery pictures in the evening and at night around this bridge in Chattanooga. It's just behind the aquariums. Lots of great places to eat on both sides of the bridge.

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