The Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge is, without a doubt, one of Nashville's coolest landmarks. It spans the Cumberland River right next to LP Field, and it provides one of the best views of the skyline in town.

Shelby Street Bridge opened about a hundred years ago, and it was reopened in 2003 as a pedestrian bridge. It's beautifully designed, and at night it is lit in a manner that makes it one of Nashville's most breathtaking sights. It's open all day every day, and, while a lot of people like to frequent the spot to check out the view, it's never extremely crowded.

The Shelby Bridge is one of those places that is perfect to take a date or even a solo stroll. If you're new to Nashville, just visiting or even if you've lived in the area for a long time, it's a sight worth seeing that never gets old. It only takes a few minutes to cross the bridge, and it leads almost directly to Broadway, one of Nashville's most popular tourist areas. From the bridge you can plainly see the Bellsouth or "Batman" building as well as all of the other features that make Nashville's skyline unique. Plus, it makes for a damn fine spot to take pictures.
