Nice perk to have in the city

Went across the bridge to the north Shore as park of bicycling the entire riverwalk. Nice view of the city and no cars to navigate around.

This is a good place popular with walkers and joggers as no traffic on the bridge. Walking across you get a great view.

Simply a wonderful place to walk, exercise, get fresh air, and enjoy the beautiful Tennessee River. High recommend, although finding a place to park can be a challenge.

The history of this bridge is interesting. Some of the stories that can be told including ghost stories. It also makes for a very nice walk across the river where you can find more things to do.

We went on this bridge during midnight and still it was very lively. We took our slippers out and walked on this bridge. It was fun seeing city and river from this bridge during midnight.
