After dinner we walked across the bridge as the sun was setting. It was wonderful. A great cross section of America was on the bridge, each one enjoying a late Spring evening. The views of the city of Chattanooga are unbeatable. So get out of...More

Walnut Street Bridge and the riverside areas are a nice place to visit in Chattanooga. There is a lot to see and do, we enjoyed just wandering around and taking it easy if you wish you can hire bikes to get a bit further afield.

We enjoyed our visit to downtown Chattanopga and enjoyed the stroll across the river. The bridge is lit up at night.

I am looking at getting married in October on the Walnut Street Bridge and was just look for advice from others who have gotten married on the bridge. The Parks & Recreation Department is telling me that we can only use one lane of the bridge, which doesn't seem like it will leave a lot of room for chairs and things for our guests. I have seen pictures of weddings on the bridge and it looks like they are using the whole center part of the bridge but that is not what they are telling me I can do so just looking for advice from others who have gotten married there. Thanks.

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.
Do they have Christmas lights on this bridge this time of year?
