  • SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL AND AMAZING! BEAUTIFULLY AMAZING. It is a magnificently designed structure, for simple relaxing and enjoying nature, and the view. PERFECT FOR COUPLES! Beautiful place to take pictures. You can see the Tennessee Titans stadium and much more from this magnificent bridge. I give it 20 stars and thumbs up
  • The pedestrian bridge is a lovely landmark of Nashville, Tennessee, and popular tourist spot. From here, one has an unobstructed view of the river, and Nashville skyline, as well as Riverfront Park. The location is ideal. The park is a sort distance away, and downtown, with many restaurants and bars. The bridge has an elevator on each end to aid pedestrians in accessing the peak of it. The bus and train stops below, and Nashboro Village is nearby, a local historic spot. Definitely a must-visit location on your tour of Nashville!
