Things to Do in Chattanooga

Sightseeing
For a very “Chattanooga” like experience, go for a walk across the Walnut Street Bridge (the world’s longest pedestrian bridge), which connects downtown to the North Shore where you’ll find tons of local and unique shopping. While you’re here head down to Coolidge Park for a picnic, l et the kids play i n the water fountains, rent bikes/kayaks/paddleboards, ride the carousel, and don’t forget to grab a famous shaved ice from Bill’s. You can also take a short walk from here to Renaissance Park also known as Cardboard Hill where you’ll find kids of all ages (seriously, this is my dad’s favorite thing to do) sliding down the big hill. The possibilities are endless here!

Great for kids and adults. Lots of fun animals and they offer giraffe feedings and camel rides on certain days. Restaurant at the zoo has good burgers and the Warner Park Playground is next to it (walking distance) so you can really burn some kid energy here!

Lookout Mountain is home to some great attractions like Ruby Falls and Rock City, as well as the Chattanooga Incline - the world’s steepest passenger railway. All fun activities for kids and adults. If you like hiking I would recommend checking out the Glen Falls Trail (short hike to a pretty waterfall and shallow swimming area) or for a longer adventure try hiking up to the beautiful Sunset Rock via Craven’s House Trail. You can also drive to the Sunset Rock parking area and it's just a short walk to the overlook.

Beginning in the spring and running through the fall, the Chattanooga Market i s every Sunday from 11 to 2 and i s the largest producer-only farmer’s market in the region. Fresh flowers, local beer, food trucks, etc. - definitely one of my favorite things to do.
