Why I Love My Neighborhood…Part 5

    Why I Love…Downtown
    By David Dorris, Realtor and Resident of Art Avenue Lofts

    I love downtown because I wake up and walk 2 blocks to work. Did I say 2 blocks?

    I love walking to the YMCA to work out. It makes so much more sense than getting in a car to go exercise.

    I love walking to the grocery store.

    I love walking to Walgreens when I need a battery or detergent. This has happened.

    I love the Art Crawl the first Saturday of every month where I can walk though all the galleries downtown, especially the Rymer Gallery.

    I love having people over on Friday and walking to dinner and out after.

    I love walking to Titans games.

    I love walking to Riverfront and across the walking street bridge. That’s why it’s there.

    I love running downtown in the mornings, then showering and walking to the office.

    I love walking to the Predators game or a good show at the Ryman.

    I love walking to the bank. I get to go more with all the money I’m saving on gas.

    I love walking to get coffee in the morning.

    I love not having to drive my Tahoe that gets 5 miles to the gallon.

    I am David Dorris, a Realtor on the CityLiving Team, and I have a walking problem.

      Love the blog post. I think you can cure the walking problem by continuing to talk about it, encouraging more people to live downtown, and that way, you’ll have more neighbors to talk with about your (and their) walking problem.
