Chattanooga Walking Bridge
When I lived in Chattanooga back in the early 90’s, the walking bridge was one of our go-to destinations. It was beautiful and didn’t cost anything to enjoy. When we visited Hunter Museum recently, we definitely wanted to take a few minutes and walk the bridge again.
Erected in 1891, the Walnut St. Bridge is one of the world’s longest pedestrian bridges. It connects downtown Chattanooga to the north shore.
The Walnut Street Bridge is easily accessible from the Hunter Museum of American Art. Just come out of the Museum and walk across the connector bridge.
The bridge is 2,376-feet-long and offers amazing views of Chattanooga from all sides and angles. Take your time and get your steps outside where the views are perfect.
On one side of the bridge, you can see the Tennessee Aquarium and on the other, you get a great view of the Hunter Museum.
Want more adventure when you finish walking across the bridge? Zig-Zag your way up the winding sidewalk and enjoy the outdoor sculptures outside the museum.
