The Chattanooga Connection

Who says you need to go into the wild to find adventure? Chattanooga is one such place that boasts the very best of outdoor and urban living, and the Walnut Street Bridge does more than just connect the North Shore to the heart of Chattanooga's Downtown via Ross's Landing, it harmoniously marries these two opposing concepts together. Whether you're crossing the span for lunch, or taking an evening stroll, or whether you're using it to commute to work or school, the Walnut Street Bridge is a must-cross in order to fully embrace all that the city has to offer. So next time you're in Chattanooga, do yourself a favor and take the pedestrian route. You'll be glad you did.

Beautiful Bridge

Lovely long old railway trestle bridge across Chattanooga. Great views of the city. Connects some great neighborhoods on both sides.
