Travel Theme: Bridges

A blog I follow has a weekly travel theme and this week happens to be “bridges”.  I wanted to show off my favorite bridge, Walnut Street Bridge, which is one of the world’s longest pedestrian bridges here in Chattanooga, TN.

Early morning view of Walnut St. Bridge from Coolidge Park.

Check out for inspiration.

Italian for Lunch Please!

The Mr. and I were lucky to get a rare lunch date together and decided on one of our favorite Chattanooga restaurants. Tony’s Pasta is located in the Bluff View Art district and serves incredible Italian food. They start you with homemade bread studded with whole garlic cloves and dipping oil with cheese. Our go to appetizer is the calamari. Hubs always gets the traditional lasagna and he was not disappointed. I tend to try different entrees and this time had the roasted vegetable lasagna. It was filled with zucchini, squash, eggplant and lots of cheese!
Tony’s is fit for a special occasion or a casual meal. We had no wait for a table for our lunch but it can get fairly busy on a weekend for dinner. Unless you arrive early you will have a wait, but its worth it!

Hunter Museum

S and I took advantage of the Hunter Museum of American Art’s free first Sunday in January. As long as I have lived here I have never been to the museum located in the Bluff View district of Chattanooga. The museum is housed in two buildings, an historic mansion and a contemporary building.

There is a wide variety of art to explore and an exhibit area that changes periodically. The glass art of Paul Stankard is here until April 21, 2013. These are beautiful and amazing glass paperweights.

Take a little stroll down the street to Rembrandt’s for some incredible chocolates and coffee. S loves the colossal chocolate chip cookies!

I was a great first visit and it is something we will do again. And you can’t go wrong with free admission!
