Fall Colors & Fun


Get Out and Explore Chattanooga's Naturehood this Fall

Fall in Chattanooga’s naturehood – the urban core surrounded by easily accessible mountains, rivers and scenic beauty – is filled with spectacular color displays, wondrous natural assets, entertainment, neighborhoods bursting with outdoor fun and activities and thrilling Halloween experiences. The weather has cooled down and the temps are ideal for walking along the Tennessee Riverpark and over Walnut Street Bridge, exploring the best spots for fall colors, rock climbing acres of sandstone, hitting the mountain biking trails, and maybe even hang-gliding over acres of brilliant foliage.
