The Hunter Museum of American Art is a must-visit for any resident or visitor of Chattanooga. In their permanent collection, you'll find art in every medium that tells the story of America from the 1700s to today.

2. Renaissance Park – 100 Manufacturers Rd., Chattanooga, TN 37405

Get to know the natural side of Chattanooga with a visit to Renaissance Park. Encompassing 23 acres of wetlands, this park shines a spotlight on the ecology and history of the area. Once a polluted area, it was cleaned up and reclaimed by nature. It now boasts a return of native species that can be seen as you stroll the park. There are also markers around the area that highlight the history and culture of Chattanooga yesterday.

3. First Street Sculpture Garden – 129 Walnut St., Chattanooga, TN 37403

If you're searching for an open-air gallery to appreciate local art, head over to the First Street Sculpture Garden. A great place to visit day or night, the First Street Sculpture Garden is one of the many sculpture fields adorning the riverside. Rotated bi-annually, many of the sculptures in the First Street Sculpture Garden are for sale, which means you can take an impressive piece of art home with you to display.

4. The Chattanooga Market – 1829 Reggie White Blvd., Chattanooga, TN 37408

Open from April until December, The Chattanooga Market is one of the best artisan and farmers markets in the region.

The market is currently operating as the Chattanooga Essentials Market, offerings up farm-fresh food and other essentials.

5. Coolidge Park – 150 River St., Chattanooga, TN 37405

Coolidge Park is by far one of the coolest outdoor spaces in all of Chattanooga. Overlooking the Tennessee River, this park is part of a 13-mile greenway that connects to other great green spaces in the city. Although you can walk, run, or bike the trail, there's more to do at Coolidge Park than admire the river. Right across the street from tons of restaurants, shops, galleries, and entertainment venues, Coolidge Park has an interactive water fountain, rock climbing, open space for picnics and sports, a memorial to our military, a century-old restored carousel, and the Walnut Street Bridge, which is also one of the longest pedestrian bridge on the planet. If you're hoping to get a sense of the city, Coolidge Park is the perfect place to stop.
