Nashville’s pedestrian bridge is architecturally stunning and also serves to connect Nissan Stadium (where the Titans play) with downtown. I’m so glad I had a chance to walk it this morning, on my last day in the city. A friend had told me about the bridge and somehow I had initially missed seeing the entrance to it. I think I walked underneath the bridge at one point, and didn’t realize that it was the pedestrian bridge. It was originally a bridge for vehicles, and was refurbished in 2003 to become pedestrian-only. So it looks massive.
The bridge makes it easy for sports fans to frequent the downtown businesses (like the BBQ joints and Honky Tonks) before and after a game. Even on a weekday morning there were plenty of people taking a stroll on the bridge, riding bikes, and catching views of the city and the Cumberland River.
