All enjoyed the walk and delicious tacos at the north end of the bridge. Champie’s ice cream was also a hit.

This was an old vehicle bridge that has been repurposed into a pedestrian bridge. There are always bikers, walkers and runners on the bridge to get a great view of the city!

Nothing special. Just a fine 5 min walk across the river. better suited for exercise than tourists. Best feature is the view from either end of the metal griddle - something akin to race scene in Ronin.

This bridge is one of Chattanooga's best attractions for me. I get a nice walk across the river and it is free.

I think it's so cool that Chattanooga has this bridge - we rode bikes and walked over it. Great views on both sides of the bridge.

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.
