Spanish Moss - Historic Architecture - Big New Bridge

I took a recent trip to Charleston, South Carolina. It's a favorite destination of mine because of the history and heritage there. Heritage tourism is big money and New Albany certainly has its share of desirable places to visit. Are we marketing ourselves properly? Your thoughts, please.

Enjoy some pictures from the trip - especially the incredible new bridge - which includes an expansive pedway. It's truly an impressive piece of engineering and architecture. Take a close look and you'll see the old bridge being dismantled in the background.

Nice pictures Ted. Did you know there is a similiar bridge connecting Indiana to Owensboro, KY?
This website shows how it was constructed.

Wow, I did not realize that bridge was in Owensboro. It's been a long time since I've been down that way.

Here is the website for the Charleston bridge.

Beautiful pictures.

New Albany does have a lot of history. I don't know how well we are marketing ourselves but I am sure we could do better. Maybe we should do tours like Charleston and some of the other older cities.

I think the Greenway will bring a lot of people here (at least I hope so).
