I wrote about Chattanooga back in October 2014 when we first announced that we would be opening a Puckett’s there. We’ve been driving to Chattanooga for mini vacations since I was a kid. In high school, we went down annually for soccer and track state championships. When my younger brother Cliff enrolled at University of Tennessee-Chattanooga, the trip became more of a regular thing. Now that we’re anxiously awaiting the opening of Puckett’s Chattanooga, I started thinking: what are my favorite things to do in the River City? It’s full of hidden gems that I’m continuously picking up on, but what I really wanted to do here was put together a list of things I do nearly every time I have more than a few hours in Chatt-town.
Claire’s Five Chattanooga Favorites:
1. Walk Walnut Street Pedestrian Bridge. I love that Chattanooga is such a connected and walkable city. It just makes it feel more inviting. For something free and fun (and active) to do, I always try to take a walk across the Tennessee River on the Walnut Street Pedestrian Bridge. Fun fact: it’s one of the longest pedestrian bridges in the world! P.S. there’s some great shopping on the other side.
2. Sip at Rembrandt’s Coffee House. Rembrandt’s is a French-inspired coffee shop located in the Bluff View Art District. You feel like you’ve transported to a little slice of Europe as you sip on your coffee and enjoy their delicious and beautiful house-made chocolates and pastries.
