Tennessee River

Chattanooga, Tennessee

With a world-class aquarium and solid art museum, there’s plenty to please culture-hounds in Chattanooga, TN. But the city’s heart lies in the Tennessee River, where outdoorsy types take to the tides on river boats, kayaks and paddleboards. A trip downstream serves up splendid views of the shops, eateries and pedestrian paths that line the waterway, not to mention the Walnut Street Bridge, which was built in 1890 and holds a place on the National Register of Historic Places.
