This is a brand new boutique hotel along with a great restaurant with outdoor seating and rooftop bar. A 10 min. walk from the Condo at the beginning of the Walnut Street Walking bridge and across from the Hunter Art Museum. Go there for drinks on the rooftop bar for great views of Chattanooga either night or day! It is fabulous inside, very unique with lots of unique art.

The best Mexican food in Chattanooga! This is a 10 min bike ride or 25 min. walk going over Walnut St. Bridge or Market St. Bridge to the Northshore area. There is indoor & outdoor seating, parking can be tough but its our favorite Mexican - not your typical Mexican food - fresh and different.

The Riverwalk is a wide walkway running along the TN River just steps away from the condo with several places to rent bikes at the Chattanooga Bikeshare program. The riverwalk goes 3.5 miles to the South to St. Elmo/Lookout Mountain area and then 8 miles the other direction past the Aquarium all the way down to the Chicamauga Dam. It passes many parks and beautiful views of the river and mountains and some attractions.
