Chattanooga, TN – Downtown and Walnut Street Pedestrian Bridge (Part 4)

During Spring Break 2019, we traveled down to Chattanooga. While there, we enjoyed the scenic views of Lookout Mountain. We also visited Ruby Falls, the Tennessee Aquarium, and the Chattanooga Zoo. We also looked for ghosts and ghouls on a ghost tour. Enjoy our spring break/ 20th wedding anniversary trip.

Way Down
Rivers Journey – Tennessee Aquarium
Ocean Journey – Tennessee Aquarium

When we got done with the Aquarium, we decided to explore the downtown area.

We crossed Market Street to check out 1st Street. The road had a steep grade to it. They either had stairs or a ramp for the pedestrians. Once you got up the hill, you ended up walking between two condo or apartment buildings. We continued on to a pedestrian bridge.

Here are photos of our walk over to the bridge.

We didn’t realize they had a pedestrian bridge. Walnut Street Pedestrian Bridge is suppose to be the longest pedestrian bridge in the world. It is 2,376 feet long.
The bridge connects downtown to the North Shore.
It was originally a bridge for vehicles but was closed down in 1978. It was reopened in 1990.

After we were done walking on the Walnut Street Pedestrian Bridge, we explored the Hunter Museum of Art’s courtyard. They had interesting statues in their courtyard.

We then decided to walk back to where the car was parked. Here are some photos of our walk.

Before we left the downtown area, we got dinner at Mellow Mushroom and dessert at Ben and Jerry’s. We actually met someone who knew our hometown while we were waiting in line at Ben and Jerry’s.

After dinner, we headed to our hotel and then Wal-Mart before calling it a night.

Join me next time for our visit to Ruby Falls.

Have a magical day,
Traci
