Nice report! Nashville is a pretty good place to live.

Nice pics and follow up! We love to party on Second Ave about once a year, getting old and can't take much anymore!

Good report!

I like Nashville. When I'm out of town, I often claim to be from Nashville because I'm embarrassed to admit I'm from Memphis.

Thanks for reading!

A few more pics walking about downtown Nashville. During the daytime during the week its easy to park at the stadium end of the pedestrian walkway and walk over into the downtown area.

The fire department was doing some training. Luckily, the wind blew the spray away from us. Got some rainbow action.

Crossing the walkway over the Cumberland River.

My favorite views of downtown are from the Pedestrian Walkway.

This is all that's left of the Ingram Barge Company where my father-in-law worked his entire career after WWII. It was quite a site to see a barge slide down the rails into the river.

Art for Arts sake. (I guess)

Schermerhorn Symphony Center -- This building was heavily damaged by the flood.

Records are old tech, but this store is a Nashville trademark.

Tootsies Orchid Lounge -- Watering hole of the Grand Ol' Opry

Bridgestone Arena: Doesn't look like there will be any hockey this year.

My favorite building in all of Nashville.

Modest little store: famed guitar restoration company.

I'm pretty sure some scenes from the TV show were shot here.

Needs no explanation.

First Avenue, riverfront and Fort Nashborough

Heading home.

Something not far away, but I've never seen before: Battle of Nashville Monument

This oak at the monument must be 250 years old

Just down the road.

12th Ave. S toward downtown: "The Gulch"

A nice view of Union Station from 11th Ave S.

Excellent photos. I'd like to ride down and explore downtown on an early Sunday morning when traffic is light.

We get too much rain here. Other than that, it's a wonderful place to call home and it's beautiful...when the sun is out and the mosquitos aren't. I miss the rural feel of middle TN. It seems like so many people nowadays, and Nashville's sprawl feels outta control sometimes.

Then again, I grew up in the woods of Hickman County back in the 1970''s pretty woodsy now, you shoulda seen it in those days!
