springhill suites

Hello. We are staying here next weekend. I have read mixed reviews on walking to the popular attractions. Our travel party will include 3 teens....who can walk but may complain if they have to walk far!!

So, if we wanted to walk to Coolidge park....would that be an ok walk? Can we take the shuttle to the walnut street bridge?

I can't tell from the map how easy it would be to get to the River walk!

Would that be our best route?

Thank you!!

You should be able to walk to the aquarium and catch a shuttle to the northshore/coolidge park - 5 minutes walk maybe. Or walk to the aquarium and then cross market street and up the hill past vaudeville cafe and turn left on walnut to walk across the river to coolidge- 15 minutes maybe- eat at good dogs for awesome hotdogs or hill city for wraps, urban spoon for more substantial fare during lunch or cross under the bridge into renaissance park and cross manufacturers for food works- great trout, salmon, crab cakes- have a great time!

The Springhill Suites is about 7-8 block walk to the Tennessee Aquarium. You can walk or take shuttle. I would not walk it late at night, although the downtown area is well lighted.

There is a shuttle also that goes from downtown (Southside) to the Northside, if you opt not to walk. You can walk across the Walnut Street Pedestrian Bridge to Coolidge Park, Good place for lunch on both sides.

"I would not walk it late at night"....is that due to crime?

I would do it but not alone but think its stupid for females to walk around after dark anywhere! Springhill Suites is a little "removed" from the center of activities in downtown but I've not heard of crime specifically in that area. Just use common sense where ever you are, lock your car, don't flash money arounf, etc
