Beautiful, quick walk connecting two sides of town. Definitely family-friendly. We walked from the side of the aquarium to the other side, where we got dessert before our walk back.

Although this is great to look at, the bridge is 1 mile across the river. one needs to take the shuttle to the north shore and then walk to the south.

This is a sight to see, the downtown area is so beautiful. The river walk , the bridge, and Coolidge park are a must see. My kids and I love to go walk on the bridge and eat ice cream from clumpies

We walked along the bridge with the kids and really enjoyed the time. We watched the kayakers and fisherman. It is a beautiful area.

Wouldn't dream of coming to Chattanooga without walking this bridge. So many points of interest are part of the scenery. Often the site of local events.

The Walnut Street bridge is a public walking bridge that gives you great views of the river. I was there to attend a wedding that took place on the bridge. It was an amazing ceremony and although during the wedding the bridge was not closed and the public could still walk back and forth, it didn't get in the way.... More

We wanted to do one more thing while in Chattanooga before our return to Nashville. The bridge came up as something doable. We did it. It has a cute area at the ends of the bridge, but the bridge itself is not that interesting. We took a few pictures, but I really cannot recommend this as a must see.

This is a pedestrian only bridge and offers beautiful views right across Chattanooga. It's a easy walk, which is well worth it.

This is strictly a walking bridge, no traffic allowed. A great place to have a cup of coffee and watch the sun rise or to watch the sunset in the evening over the Tennessee River.
