Chattanooga Outdoor Adventure

Chattanooga has always been known as a premier outdoor destination—Outside magazine dubbed Chattanooga the “Best Town Ever.” With access to some of the nation’s top venues for rock climbing, road and mountain biking, hiking, white-water rafting, hang gliding and more, all within a short drive of downtown, the Chattanooga outdoors offer unique opportunities for even the most hardcore outdoor enthusiasts.

Looking for something a little less adventurous? That’s OK, too. You can take a bike ride or leisurely stroll down Chattanooga’s beautiful 13-mile Riverwalk that runs along the Tennessee River, enjoy a picnic in one of the many parks and so much more.
