Snaking along the southern banks of the Tennessee River you will find one of the most popular outdoor recreation and sightseeing spots in the entire city, the Chattanooga Riverwalk.
This 13-mile long path is paved and immerses you 'into nature, culture, and cuisine', with several local attraction hotspots to stop at along the way. Most people begin their journey on the Riverwalk at the Tennessee Aquarium and follow it to the Chickamauga Dam. What exactly can you see and do along the way? Check out these fun options:
- Rent bikes
- Rent watercraft
- Run or walk
- Play in the fountains at Ross's Landing Park
- Visit art institutions at Bluff View Arts District
- Walk iconic Walnut Street Bridge
- Visit Historic Battery Place
You will undoubtedly need a stop for food or drinks along the way, so consider a coffee from Rembrandts, a quick lunch at Tony's Pasta Shop or the Boathouse Rotisserie and Raw Bar, or enjoy a drink at Scotties on the River. You can also grab an ice cream cone at Clumpies or sit down for a good dinner at Beast and Barrel Gastro Smokehouse.
