For a city located smack dab in the midst of middle America, Nashville is pretty damned cool. In addition to the music scene, which you probably knew about already, Nashville has some great bridges. The footbridge from the Bridge Building over the Cumberland to downtown not only affords you an excellent view of other bridges, it also is a striking bridge in its own right.
American cities would do well to turn all unused railroad bridges into pedestrian footpaths. They’re irresistible.
