I'll be heading down to this lovely city at the end of April, and I'll be staying in the downtown area. I don't drive, and I walk 3 miles to work every day, so I'm going to be relying on my legs as transportation. From what I've seen on the boards and heard from my friends, walking is not the greatest way to get around.
Is this because there are not very many sidewalks or pedestrian crossings, or the distances are truly that great? For instance, am I able to walk from downtown to Centennial Park without getting hit by a car on Highways/Routes 40, 65, and 70? From downtown to East Nashville without competing with cars whizzing by on the bridges?
