The Walnut Street Bridge was on our "to do" list before we arrived in Chattanooga and it exceeded our expectations. The best option is to park on the opposite side of downtown (public parking was very reasonable) and there is an indoor carousel and outdoor park on that side of the bridge. The views from the bridge are really spectacular... More

A walk across the bridge makes for a lovely experience and is a great way to see both sides of Chattanooga without driving! Taking a walk at sunset is especially rewarding.

Walnut Street Bridge is good for walking or cycling. It offers fantastic views and a cool place to visit. Do not miss Ice Cream Show on the downtown side of the bridge.

I had been to Chattanooga several times, and had never really took the time to view this bridge. It's GORGEOUS! Chattanooga is one of the few cities where you can still get really close to the riverfront and enjoy it. Selfies, and all!! There's a park for the kids nearby, and a few shops. Definitely plan to spend a little... More

You can enjoy nice views from this pedestrian bridge. Our whole family enjoyed walking it and going to the park at the end of it. It was easy to walk to from our downtown hotel.

Loooved this bridge and the trendy, artsy neighborhood it connects to. Enjoy a lovely stroll, take lots of pics and then visit all the shops and museums in the area.

This is one of the must see and walk places of Chattanooga, nice views of the city, downtown and mountains. Plenty to see and a lot of pictures to take. The river is great and you feel at peace here.

This bridge is a nice walking bridge with great views. At night it is lit very nicely with Christmas Tree appearing lights. Great walk for family time, highly recommend it. The Arts museum is close by if you want to go in to Arts museum. Enjoy

We went at night and it was decorated nicely with snowflakes for the holiday season. While I enjoy history and the significance of this structure, it is just an old railroad bridge. I'm glad it is now a nice walking path but I think more signs/plaques explaining some of the history would be helpful.
