We had a blast creating our own walking tour of Chattanooga, stopping at statues and points of interest. See a map of our 5 mile tour below.

From the Walnut Street Bridge (Art District), we walked up Walnut, passed The Edwin Hotel, and turned onto E 3rd to Cherry St., then we jogged over to Market Street and continued South all the way to City Center at Miller Park (a great spot for a picnic & there are public restrooms there)...

Next we were looking for the butterfly wings, so we zig zagged some through Southside until we found our way to Long (and bought some Girl Scout cookies - yum). Southside has so many great restaurants and has a fun, funky vibe.
