It's where me & my husband we're married in April. I couldn't have asked for a better spot in one of the most beautiful cities.

Loved the bridge. Great views and pleasant stroll. Loved the downtown area but what a rip off parking is. $7 for just 2 hours is just arrogant greed. On street meter parking is no better. Refused to pay it. Was just voting with my feet...More

We enjoyed this restored pedestrian bridge. It is a beautiful area and was fun watching people on the river as well. It was a beautiful Saturday and very busy!

We were able to see this lovely bridge at night from a few locations and it was just beautiful. Very relaxing being by the water looking at the bridge.

My hubby loves the architecture of bridges so we went for a stroll on the bridge around sunset. There were beautiful views of the city and excellent photo opportunities as the sun set. Well worth a visit.

A great walk to go to the North Shore on the other side. A few shops and cafes but not much. Seems like the town is up and coming but just not there yet.

Longest Walking Bridge over Tennessee River. Connects to Coolidge Park which has huge hand carved Merry'go Round and various restraunts and specialty shops. Fun for all ages.

what a beautiful old bridge. It took a while walking over it and back all of the way while we all admired the views and the bridge itself. I really recommend a walk over and to it, parkland nearby.
